Navi Mumbai: CarWale has crossed the 3 crore unique visitor mark on its website www.carwale.com since its inception in 2005. CarWale is the first auto portal in India to reach this milestone.
CarWale was launched in 2005. It aims to empower Indian consumers to make informed car buying and ownership decisions with exhaustive and un-biased information on cars through expert and owner reviews, detailed specifications, comparisons and a host of tools and technology.
To celebrate the occasion CarWale is running a month long contest on its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CarWale). Christened ‘Kiss-Your-Car’ the contest encourages car owners to show their love for their car. A user simply has to upload a photo of him/her kissing their car with a suitable headline to CarWale’s Facebook Page. The first 100 entries get assured prizes – CarWale branded umbrellas and seat belt pads. To bring more zing to the celebrations CarWale is giving away a free professional car wash and car polish to the best photograph each day. The best 3 photographs of the contest will also win themselves a free Teflon coating treatment for their cars. The car washes, polishes and treatments are provided in association with Carnation.
Reminiscing about the early days, Mohit Dubey, Co-Founder & CEO, CarWale said, “We started CarWale in October 2005 with 500 cars listed. We waited over a week for the first transaction on the site. Over the years, we have focused more and more on car consumers and built products around car prices and research data. This has helped us attract genuine car buyers and sellers to CarWale, making us the single largest marketplace for car consumers in India today. Crossing the 3 crore mark gives us tremendous satisfaction and a sense of achievement. Our heartfelt thanks to all those who have trusted us over the years. We are committed to building CarWale even further and look forward to crossing many more such milestones.”
