Berlin, February 1, 2024 – AUTO1 Group SE, Europe’s leading digital automotive platform for buying and selling used cars, today announced the launch of AUTO1 Financing, an innovative car financing solution that leverages AUTO1’s data-driven platform for select partner dealers. The recently launched product enables dealers to buy and sell more cars faster by allowing them to buy from, Europe’s largest wholesale platform for used cars, without investing their own capital.

AUTO1 Financing enables dealers to seamlessly add the financing solution to the vehicles they purchased on the platform as part of their digital customer journey.

With its new digital product, AUTO1 Group has reimagined inventory financing to make it the most simple, convenient and transparent solution for dealers.

AUTO1 Financing as strong future revenue and profit driver

By providing used car dealers with a seamless and efficient financing solution, AUTO1 Group is increasing sales and improving dealer loyalty. “AUTO1 Financing is a very attractive business for us on a stand-alone basis. Enabling dealers to build larger inventories with AUTO1 Financing and as a result buy and sell more vehicles will be a strong future revenue and profit driver for us and will contribute significantly to our growth,” said Markus Boser, CFO of AUTO1 Group.
