The world is becoming more digital with each passing day and the trend to buy things online is on the rise. Among a score of other commodities which are now being traded online, new and used cars make for a reasonable portion. The old ways of searching for cars, like for example going to the dealer directly and/or searching from newspapers are becoming obsolete. Right now, around 45 percent of car enthusiasts globally like to search for cars online for buying purpose and this is expected to rise.
Many online portals such as Carvana, Alibaba.com and Indian used car online portal Carwale.com are redefining these industries in their respective countries while PakWheels is an indigenous brand revolutionizing this space for Pakistan.
