Idea

Focussing initially on the UK new car market, carwow has expanded in the UK into leasing, financing, and nearly-new cars.

Today, about 5% of all consumer new cars in the UK are sold through carwow, and about 1% in Germany and Spain already too.

In 2018, carwow generated £20m in revenue with a compound annual growth rate of 80% since 2015. The business is not yet profitable and continues to invest in its growth & market expansion.
