U.K.-based car marketplace Motors.co.uk has launched a Cazoo app two weeks after buying the brand.

This is the first phase of Motors’ strategy to make Cazoo a used car marketplace. At the time of writing, the Cazoo app has more than 200,000 cars listed.

Car shoppers can use the app to search for a “wide selection” of listings from franchised and independent dealers, as well as digital auto retailers.

Buyers can message or call dealers directly from the app. They can also view a comprehensive history check and apply for finance from CarMoney.

Barry Judge, CEO of Motors.co.uk, said: “Launching this all-new Cazoo app so soon after the acquisition of the brand supercharges our commitment to delivering a resource that supports dealer growth and provides more choices for buyers.”

“Cazoo is one of the top automotive brands in the UK, with over 80% of its traffic coming from mobile, which is why we have taken this mobile-first approach. We believe the roll-out of this app will provide a hassle-free search process for buyers and deliver even higher levels of visibility and leads to our dealer partners.”

Judge said car buyers are now using an average of four marketplaces when searching for their next cars: “We understand the need for dealers to get their cars seen in multiple places, which is why we have included Cazoo within our multi-site advertising package free of charge.”

He also confirmed an all-new Cazoo website was being developed. In the meantime, Motors is operating a temporary Cazoo website featuring dealer stock that’s also listed on Motors.co.uk.

Motors bought the Cazoo brand in late June for an undisclosed sum. Read more about where it all went wrong for Cazoo here.
