AutoScout24 is expanding to Eastern Europe

New used car search in Poland, Rumania and Bulgaria

The internationalising of AutoScout24 is continuing at full speed. Europe’s leading online car market is starting in Poland, Rumania and Bulgaria with an own used car search and is thus in the mean time present in 13 countries. Professional dealers and private users have access as of immediately to around 1.6 million motor vehicle offerings at, and “Poland, Rumania and Bulgaria are very dynamic and strongly growth oriented markets with a large demand for used vehicles from Western Europe, in particular from Germany," according to Dr. Nicola Carbonari, CEO AutoScout24. “With our European wide search, we make the dealers and private users in these countries a unique offer: we are the only ones to offer an almost full European online car market with the full functional scope of our AutoScout24 search. We thus guarantee an enormous selection of vehicles in every price class and in every segment."

In addition to the used car search, AutoScout24 is offering for the first time in Poland, Rumania and Bulgaria detailed information on the import conditions of the respective countries. Different checklists – from questions about import and export through the safe purchase of a used car to the trial drive – are ready to download. With questions, customer consultants can help you via e-mail in the respective national language.

“This first step to Eastern Europe is a central component of our internationalisation strategy and helps us to continue to expand our market leading position in Europe," according to Carbonari. "Also our trading partners in Western Europe will profit – through a clear plus of qualified inquiries from Poland, Rumania and Bulgaria."
