- Buyers can search for their next car by make, model or dealers
- App has quick filters including financing options and car depreciation
CAROUSELL Motors, a one-stop mobile classifieds marketplace for used cars, officially launched on Feb 28.
The new mobile app, which aims to make car buying and selling easier, helps aspiring car owners make the best decision possible by providing reliable, transparent and easily accessible information on used cars in Singapore.
Carousell Motors boasts a variety of features and a clutter-free mobile interface that offers a smooth and easy car buying experience.
Buyers can search for their next car in several ways including by make, model or dealers, or use quick filters including financing options and car depreciation to find what they need.
They can also save their favourites, compare car options at a glance, and chat directly with verified dealerships on the app.
All listings on Carousell Motors will be available on Carousell’s general classifieds marketplace.
Existing car owners will be able to “snap, list and sell” their cars as easily as it is to buy and sell on Carousell.
Carousell co-founder and CEO Siu Rui Quek said, “Carousell Motors is our response to the frustration faced by car buyers today. Many feel that current sites are cumbersome to navigate, without sufficient information and choices to make good decisions, and the industry is fraught with distrust.
“The spike in growth of Carousell’s Cars category over the last few months is a signal to us that people are looking for more quality choices, and credible information from trustworthy sellers. We believe a dedicated app for serious car buyers will give them a more personalised and breezier car shopping experience, and bring greater value to our community”.
The launch of Carousell Motors comes off the back of Carousell’s acquisition of Caarly, a startup which used mobile technology to build productivity tools for car dealerships.
The team has tapped on their strong domain expertise in the automotive industry, and wide network of partners accumulated over the years, to offer Singaporeans a more delightful and empowering car buying experience.
Carousell Motors head Sanjay Shivkumar said, “From our frequent engagements with car dealers and car buyers, we understand their dissatisfaction with current platforms for buying and selling cars. By constantly innovating and using the latest technology to make car buying and selling enjoyable, we are well-positioned to disrupt current industry offerings and become the top cars classifieds in Singapore.”
Carousell Motors is available on the App Store for iOS, the Google Play Store for Android, and on Desktop.
