An online car buying and auctioning platform for Nigerian used cars, Cars45, has entered into a car trade-in deal with Kia Motors.
This Partnership, according to the Chief Executive Officer, Cars45, Etop Ikpe, is to ensure that any pre-owned car can be traded-in at Kia’s Akin Adesola office
in Victoria Island, Lagos to Cars45 for a new Kia, a fairly used Kia, or other cars owned by Cars45.
He said, “Our business is beyond providing a platform for Nigerians to sell their cars. The desire to meet the customers’ expectations is what is paramount for us at cars45.
“The used car market is growing and we have seen a lot of requests from Kia owners for an opportunity to swap their old Kia for new ones.
This plan we believe further establishes Cars45´s commitment to Nigerians by ensuring that there are cars for the average Nigerian whenever they want one.”
Ikpe stated that Cars45 recently opened a new centre in Kia’s Akin Adesola office, adding that any pre-owned car could be driven to the centre and traded in for a brand new or previously owned Kia car.
According to the Vice President, Kia Motors Nigeria, Olu Tikolo, Kia has witnessed strong demand of its used cars and customers have over the years asked for a trade-in option for a new model.
He said the market size of pre-owned cars had grown significantly and their partnership with Cars45 was aimed at offering a well organised used car trade-in
programme with hassle-free ownership experience to their customers.
Speaking further, he said the country’s used car market had a huge growth potential and it was expected that ‘Kia certified used car’ business would grow in the
foreseeable future and contribute to the brand’s growth in Nigeria.
“Our partnership with a leading online used car sales portal will not only roll out a used certified car programme but also offer customers more choices, enabling
them to create a bespoke buying process that suits their needs” Tikolo added.
