These packages aim to create a safe environment and protection for occupants. All materials in these hygiene packages are tailored for the care of valuable materials in the car and clean them gently avoiding damage. These products can be used by the customers themselves. Three types of hygiene packages have been launched .

Keeping on the topic of sanitizing, all vehicles will go through at least one stage of sanitization and will have provision for sanitizing occupants and the vehicle itself. Demo vehicles will be sanitized before each test drive and will have hand sanitizers placed in them. Repair and maintenance will be carried out by service engineers wearing full personal protective gear.
