3rd January 2012 - CarDekho kick-starts 2012 with 3 crore visitors mark
CarDekho.com, country's most popular automotive portal has achieved a mark of over 3 crore unique visitors in less than 4 years. It is the minimum time span in which any automotive portal across the country has achieved this target beating all the competitors.
The 3 crore unique visitors mark in less than four years expresses the success story of the auto portal and hard work put in by CarDekho team. The success of CarDekho has been exemplary in the online industry. From a small inception of a car website in mid 2008 by founders Amit Jain and Anurag Jain, the portal now stands at an ace position in its segment.
According to Amit, “It’s very exciting to achieve this milestone. Clearly online medium is playing a big role in car buying decisions now which is also evident from the traffic growth we have seen over the years. We at CarDekho strive to build a portal that caters to all needs of both new car and used car buyers. The process of innovation at CarDekho never stops; there hasn’t been even a single week since our inception when something new has not gone live. It all started with Auto Expo 2008 where the idea of starting an Auto Portal came to our minds. As we touch this important milestone, Auto Expo 2012 is about to begin reminding us of the times which kicked off the idea. We would like thank all our visitors who made this journey possible in such short span of time. Thanks for the regular feedback which has helped us innovate. We look forward to your support to scale new heights.”
Expressing his views upon the achievement, the Co-Founder of CarDekho, Anurag Jain says that "I am excited to see CarDekho.com come a long way in this relatively short span of less than 4 years. Hitting the 3 crore mark this early is yet another first amongst a lot of firsts that we have done. Today, Indian car buyers are more aware and more diligent. Portals like CarDekho aid their buying process and make car buying decisions a lot simpler. In the backdrop of AutoExpo 2012 where all OEMs plan their new launches, online portals like CarDekho have emerged as a significant force in being one stop solution for the users to research about all types of cars under one hood. We owe all our success to the visitors who not only have researched on our portal but have immensely contributed to the car buying community on CarDekho. We are looking forward to an exciting 2012 with lot of action in the auto industry and are committed to raise the bar higher at CarDekho with our innovations."
