MarQ, a sub-brand of Flipkart, has today announced the launch of six new washing machines in India. The new range is available for purchase from the e-commerce portal at a starting price of Rs 11,499.
The company has introduced front load 10.2 kg washing machine for Rs 26,999, while the front load + dryer is priced at Rs 31,999. The top load washing machines come with a price of Rs 11,499 for 6.5Kg variant, Rs 14,999 for 8Kg variant, Rs 15,999 for 8.5Kg option and Rs 17,999 for 10.2Kg option.
MarQ by Flipkart ventured into the washing machine category in December 2017 with semi-automatic washers. The brand has seen tremendous interest from consumers since then and has played a key part in filling the need gaps in the market, as expressed by customers. MarQ by Flipkart is built to offer a great value proposition to Indian customers, who are looking for the latest features in their home appliances, without creating a financial burden.
Starting with the top load washing machine with dryer, it is equipped with ‘Ready to Wear’ function, which allows clothes to come out of the wash with 95 per cent dryness level. The washers in the front load segment have in-built inverter technology with a brushless DC motor which offers more than 30 per cent energy and water savings.
Furthermore, there is a ‘Tub Clean’ feature through which the machines auto clean at a 90 degree Celsius temperature in order to avoid microbial formation.
The company has claimed all the upcoming washing machines have Auto Balance technology, which helps keep clothes tangle free. The machines are loaded with a gentle scrubbing and better cleaning along with an Express Wash feature for instant cleaning. In addition, the machines also have ‘Buzz Free Operation’, which allows noise level to stay less than 72 dB.
The company has introduced MarQ Care, which will provide specialised service for free delivery at the doorstep. The new service is run by the company’s service arm Jeeves. Flipkart is offering 24 x 7 operational service at 15,000+ pin codes and assures “excellent delivery and installation as part of its after-sales service package.”
