Head of Product, Cars24 Australia
CARS24 is a global e-commerce platform for used cars. The company started in India 8 years ago where it got to a leadership position in used cars. Now it has established itself in the Gulf, South East Asia and Australia.
We have started operations in Australia in 2021 and quickly emerged as a leading player for Australians to buy and sell used cars 100% online. Cars24 Australia’smission is to transform how Australians buy cars. Imagine a truly Amazon-like experience where you can search, buy, get financing, insurance, and warranty fully online. The car shows up at your doorstep to either love or return at no cost. Unlike an average dealer, we invest 4-5x in each car when reconditioning it to the highest used car quality standard in the market. This becomes possible due to one of a kind reconditioning facility that is built for scale and quality. Our Melbourne refurbishment facility is set to produce close to 1000 cars at full capacity, a scale of operations non existent in Australia today.
Our headquarters are in Melbourne and Gurgaon.
