“It was really fun showing Mark how our technology and knowledge has integrated so well with Carvana’s,” said Bruno Francois, Car360 founder and Carvana product director. “From the time Mark committed to investing in Car360 on “Shark Tank,” through the past few years as we’ve grown, and into Car360’s acquisition by Carvana, he has continued to be communicative and committed. We enjoyed showcasing the resources and opportunity ahead of us as we change the way people buy cars.”
Carvana, headquartered in Tempe, Ariz., is featured throughout the segment, including showcasing the company’s patented photo studios and proprietary technology that produce 360-degree used vehicle digital tours. These high-definition photos highlight features, imperfections, and detailed interior and exterior views of every vehicle, giving customers a transparent virtual vehicle tour experience.
“2018 was a huge growth year for us, and bringing the Car360 team into the fold set us up for some exciting enhancements moving forward,” said Ernie Garcia, Carvana founder and CEO. “We’re looking forward to debuting all that we’ve been working on together, soon.”
