The Nigerian automotive tech-enabled platform said plans are at top gear to increase its footprint in the countries by opening centers across the cities.
Commenting on the expansion, Etop Ikpe, CEO and Co-Founder of Cars45, said, “We want to connect buyers and sellers across the continent in the most seamless way, taking the stress out of the trading experience.

Ikpe added that “the process of buying and selling cars today can be complicated, time-consuming and needlessly expensive. We want to put an end to that by providing an easy and convenient way for consumers across Africa to make what is often the most significant financial transaction of their lives.”
