CarTrade, India's leading online automobile classifieds platform, has raised USD 55 million led by Temasek, an investment company based in Singapore, alongside a large US family office. This injection of capital will be used to support CarTrade's growth plans through acquisitions, expansion into new areas such as auto finance and to further sharpen CarTrade's services to consumers, dealers and OEMs.

Following the merger of CarTrade with Carwale in January 2016, CarTrade is India's largest auto classifieds platform.

The platforms list more than 200,000 used cars for sale and auctions over 200,000 vehicles to the wholesale market every year.

Mr. Vinay Sanghi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, CarTrade said, "CarTrade is on arapid growth trajectory. The funds raised will be used to drive growth through continued focus on strengthening our dealer and customer services and evaluating potential acquisitions. CarTrade is aggressively looking at the market for used car finance withless then 8% of used cars sold being financed through an organized financier. To address this opportunity CarTrade Finance was recently launched with the aim of financing the inventory for car dealers and to consumers who wish to buy used cars."

Existing investors in CarTrade include Warburg Pincus, Temasek, JP Morgan and March Capital.
