Germany’s Heycar declares war on UK used car market

Aug 22, 2019

At least Heycar has more than 41 used cars for sale, unlike UK-based used car marketplace Hellocar, which crashed and burned a couple of years ago (see Hellocar says Goodbye ). London/Berlin based Carspring apparently suffered a similar fate. Backed by two of Germany’s leading car manufacturers, Volkswagen and Daimler, Berlin-based Heycar has just launched in the UK with (as at time of writing) 100,183 used cars available for sale, from the A to V of brands (as in Abarth to Volvo). Heycar launched in its home market in 2017. Not that there’s any shortage of car marketplaces in the UK, both online and offline. UK-based, LSE-listed Auto Trader claims to be ‘the UK’s largest digital automotive marketplace’, with revenues of £355m last year (to 31st March 2019) and a 69% (!) operating margin. Privately held, UK-based ‘bricks and clicks and mortar’ used car dealer Cargiant is rather bigger by sales. Revenues reached £539m in 2017 – the last year for which accounts are available – eking out a gross profit of £60m (11% gross margin) and an operating profit of £41m (8% margin). In the end if you are buying or selling a used car, you’ll probably check out all the websites (Idea Warning: Opportunity for a used car marketplace aggregator website – and pick the one that suits you best. By the way, Heycar’s PR talks about the UK used car industry being worth £50b. If two of the largest players can barely muster £1b in revenues between them, where’s the rest coming from?
