Carvana Expands Into its 100th Market
Already becoming a significant presence in the southeast US in the used car buying marketplace, Carvana has announced it is expanding to four new markets in this region.
The new markets are Hilton Head Island, SC, Tuscaloosa, Ala., Athens, Ga, and its 100th market, Savannah, Ga.
Carvana lets customers shop online for any of its 15,000+ vehicle stock. And if the website and app weren’t enough, customers can buy a car as soon as the next day from one of its automated Car Vending Machines.
“Georgia is a special place for us because it’s where we sold our very first car, in Atlanta, in 2013,” said Ernie Garcia, founder and CEO of Carvana, referring to its debut in the used auto market. “Being able to return to the state where it all started, for market No. 100 just six years later, is incredible. Customers in the southeast have continued to welcome Carvana, so we’re looking forward to bringing the new way to buy a car to even more customers in Hilton Head Island, Tuscaloosa, Athens and Savannah.”
Carvana started as a spin-off of Drivetime, a used car dealer chain. It launched an IPO in 2017.
