Cars24 Financial Services Pvt Ltd, a subsidiary of Cars24 Services Pvt Ltd, has raised its first debt funding of ₹10 crore from Vivriti Capital Pvt Ltd.
The capital will be utilised to lend to small dealers and consumers across 50 cities where Cars 24 operates.
Launched in 2019 with an aim to provide seamless and instant access to credit, Cars24 Financial Services provides consumers with quick and easy loan plans, one-day disbursal, 100% buy back guarantee and zero prepayment charges.

According to a survey by Cars24, 41% of the consumer’s intention to purchase a private car post lockdown has increased. However, availability of easy financing options has been a challenge for both dealers and consumers.
