Rocket Internet’s car classifieds site Carmudi has launched a mobile application to allow users to browse thousands of cars on the go.
In a statement, Karl-Johan Sturesson, Co-Founder and Head of Business Development of Carmudi Africa said, “We want to bring the massive choice of cars to the fingertips of our users all over Africa. This is a huge milestone for Carmudi Africa and is a natural step in our ongoing strategy of being in the frontline when it comes to business development. The app will allow millions of users across Africa to find their dream car in just a single tap. We already have over one million users visiting our website globally every month. Carmudi is changing the way consumers search and shop for cars. With mobile phones accounting for more than a third of the internet usage in the emerging world, Carmudi’s app will further strengthen its dominance there.”
Claiming over 200,000 vehicles online, Carmudi’s app is expected to give users an excellent experience of buying cars while on the move, thus allowing them the same sense of ease and comfort out and about as they would experience in front of their PCs at home.
The app is available to Android users in 20 countries across Asia, Africa, the Middle East and LATAM. For the convenience of customers, Carmudi has made the app available in 9 different languages.
The app will allow customers to filter searches by any means that they wish, from brand to model and year to price. Users can also share listings on various social platforms to gain opinions from friends and family if they are unsure. In addition, the Carmudi app allows for favouriting of listings so that they get instant notifications on their favourite rides.
