Its app offers free home trials and the lowest price guarantee, streamlining the discovery and purchasing process tenfold.

The fresh proceeds will be used to expand OTO’s presence to over 30 cities, support the transition to electric vehicles, and fortify existing partnerships.

The startup claims to have sold over 75,000 two-wheelers and disbursing loans worth more than Rs 550 crore to date. As per the company, its management of non-performing assets has made it a preferred partner for several banks and NBFCs, which have committed over Rs 800 crore for the upcoming 12 months. 

OTO has partnerships with major two-wheeler brands like Ola, Hero Motocorp, Royal Enfield, Ather, and Suzuki through their dealership networks.

It competes with Muffin, Revfin, Finayo, Vidyut, and evfin, among others.
