Gettacar — an online car buying company that makes the car buying and ownership process easier — recently announced it raised $25 million in funding. This brings the total funding raised to $48 million. This funding round was led by 3L and Luxor Capital with additional participation from Torch Capital. And Gettacar will use the new funding to continue investing in the customer experience, expand into additional markets, and product development.

Since Gettacar launched in 2018, the company has focused on building proprietary technologies and consumer-first guarantees that are unparalleled in the online car buying industry. And car buyers can buy online in as little as 12 minutes, get real-time online financing options, and have 7 days to decide whether they’d like to keep the car. Plus every Gettacar vehicle comes with the Gettacar Guarantee, the 365-day bumper-to-bumper protection, and maintenance package.

Gettacar’s vertically integrated business model is also unique and enables the company to quality control their inventory by keeping inventory acquisition, logistics, reconditioning, and merchandising in-house. And last year, the company saw a 186% year-over-year increase in sales growth. And in 2021, the projected sales growth is 210% year-over-year. And Gettacar plans to launch in additional U.S. markets in 2021.
