With Carvana's two January announcements of its continued growth, more residents of New York and Georgia will be able to use the company's vehicle buying, selling, financing and other services.
The company announced on Jan. 30 that it has launched in five New York markets: Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Binghamton and Albany. That news follows Carvana’s Jan. 16 announcement that it launched in Columbus, Ga., the fourth market for Carvana in the state. Since its founding in 2012 as an e-commerce platform for buying, financing and selling new cars, Carvana has described itself as a company that offers consumers an intuitive online car buying and financing platform with as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery. Carvana now offers services in 91 markets across the U.S.
Ernie Garcia, founder and chief executive officer of Carvana, said in a news release that the company is looking forward to growing even more in New York.
“We launched in New York City last fall and found that New Yorkers welcomed the transparency and ease that Carvana brings to the car buying experience,” Garcia said.
He noted, however, that Georgia “is where it all started” for the company, which sold its first car in Atlanta in 2013.
“Being able to now expand to our fourth market in the state and show Columbus the new way to buy a car is something we’re very proud of,” Garcia said.
