- More flexible than traditional car rental with as short as a one month subscription with no deposit required
- More convenient than car sharing with all-included fee and door-step delivery and returns
18 JULY 2023, SINGAPORE – Riding on the newly-launched Carousell Certified programme for Cars, leading multi-category classifieds and recommerce marketplace Carousell is partnering leading car-as-a-subscription company Carzuno to launch the Carousell Car Subscription in Singapore, providing further convenience for users. Starting from today, users can enjoy fully digital end-to-end service from choosing their preferred car to returning it without leaving their home.
With concerns about the rising COE premium and cost of living, younger Singaporeans, especially families with young children, are looking for alternative affordable options to still enjoy the experience and convenience of owning a car without the residual value risk of potentially buying at record-high COE premiums. Additionally, being new to car ownership, younger Singaporeans prefer a flexible, fuss-free option without worrying about the various costs such as insurance & road tax, maintenance & servicing, down payment and bank loans. Car subscriptions also allow for the flexibility to change different car models, be it to suit changing needs or to try out a model before committing to a purchase, without the hassle of traditional car rental and car sharing.
Enjoy convenience with all-inclusive Carousell Car Subscription
Carousell Car Subscription allows users to choose their preferred duration from between one to 24 months. The all-in-one pricing is among the most competitive monthly subscription rates in the market, and includes preferred car, comprehensive insurance, servicing, maintenance, 24/7 roadside assistance, unlimited mileage, and free doorstep delivery and return. All prices are fully transparent on the website, and vary from car to car depending on the model and specs, allowing users to find a car that suits their budgets and needs. For instance, the monthly fee for a 12-month subscription of a brand new 2023 Toyota Yaris Cross is S$2,199 per month, while the fee for the fully electric 2022 BYD E6 is S$2,499 per month for a 12-month subscription.
As part of the new launch promotion, Carousell and Carzuno will be offering an exclusive $100 discount for all Carousell Car Subscriptions until the end of the year. Find out more about Carousell Car Subscription here: https://www.carousell.sg/car-subscription/l/
Carousell Singapore’s Head of Autos, Sanjay Shivkumar said, “Besides being known for being able to buy and sell secondhand cars, Carousell has the largest platform for rental cars in Singapore. In recent years, we have had more requests to offer car subscription services as well, and we have seen growing demand globally, especially among eco-conscious drivers who want to use electric vehicles without the hefty price tag. Hence, we are excited to partner with Carzuno launch a service that puts our users’ convenience first, and provides more choice.”
Carzuno CEO Kim Jonsson said, “Combining Carousell’s reach of 1 in 3 Singaporeans as monthly active users with our large fleet and variety of 50 car models, we are excited to give Singaporeans more flexibility and freedom in driving the car of their choice. It is as simple as filling in a three-minute form, uploading a copy of your driver’s licence, adding fuel to the car and enjoying your drive. Users can also have the peace of mind that the cars available are in tip-top condition from regular servicing and maintenance.”
This launch follows closely on the wheels of the Carousell Certified programme that launched in April 2023, which ensures buyers can choose secondhand items with the peace of mind that everything has been thoroughly checked for quality and authenticity. Carousell Certified listings are available in the Cars, Luxury, Mobile, and Sneakers category with the ‘Certified’ tag, and are sold by either Carousell Official Stores or from authorised Carousell Certified Partners. Carousell Certified cars are inspected with a road test by certified mechanics and backed with a 12-month warranty on major vehicle components. Certified cars are priced fairly, backed by past and current market prices, and have no hidden costs.
