carwow is the most convenient, stress-free way to find and buy a new car, at a price you can be confident in. carwow aims to solve the major pain points that buyers and dealers experience in the buying process, putting them in a more powerful position than ever before. Offering buyers crucial price confidence, a more convenient hassle free way to find and buy the car they want, and an altogether better buying experience. And it's great news for dealers too. Through carwow, our dealer partners sell more cars than they could in the showroom alone, while reducing cost inefficiencies and increasing stock turnover. This means they can pass on great prices to carwow buyers.

  • Balderton Capital (Betfair, LOVEFiLM, Citymapper, MySQL)
  • Accel (Facebook, Spotify, Dropbox, Groupon)
  • Vitruvian Partners (JustEat, Skyscanner, Trustpilot)
  • Episode 1 (Zoopla, Shazam, LOVEFiLM)
  • Samos (Ocado, Betfair, PKR)

We've raised over £48m in funding since we launched, so we're growing fast. We're relentlessly driven and constantly asking ourselves how we can make carwow better.
