our mission is to create a trusted and transparent marketplace for mobility

Who we are

AUTO1 Group is Europe’s leading car trading platform.

When Christian and Hakan founded the precursor of AUTO1 Group in 2012 the journey of transforming car buying and selling began. Together with their initial team of seven they sold 224 cars in the first year and quickly realized that their business idea, born out of necessity, has the potential to grow rapidly in the coming years. And that was exactly what happened. Together with a passionate team and the shared mission to create a trusted and transparent marketplace for mobility, they began to capture the European market and have brought AUTO1 Group and its brands to where it is today.

Headquartered in Berlin AUTO1 Group enables consumers as well as dealers to trade seamlessly throughout Europe. The brand independent automotive platform owns business units like AUTO1.com, wirkaufendeinauto.de and Autohero.

Our diverse team of over 3,500 employees from more than 55 nationalities is one of the company’s key assets and helps us to profit from various strengths, perspectives and experiences. Together with this highly motivated team and the support of our investors we believe in our vision to connect the world’s supply and demand for mobility.
