Jiji, Africa’s e-commerce marketplace, made a strategic acquisition of Cars45, an online car auction service. This unexpected deal paved the way for a series of partnership agreements that have the potential to transform the Nigerian car dealership market and benefit various stakeholders, particularly prospective car owners. Jiji’s acquisition of Cars45 aimed to strengthen its market position and create a comprehensive solution for car-related needs. With millions of monthly visitors to its platforms, Cars45 capitalized on this favorable market environment to establish strategic partnerships with major auto brands, offering seamless and rewarding car buying and selling experiences. One such significant partnership was formed with CFAO Suzuki, a Japanese brand, enabling them to advertise their range of vehicles exclusively on the Jiji platform. Cars45’s extensive network of retail centers across Nigeria also serves as authorized inspection and verification hubs for Suzuki used cars, ensuring peace of mind for buyers. This collaboration has been well-received by stakeholders in the Nigerian automotive industry and has the potential to reshape the dynamics of the market. The partnership aligns with Cars45’s mission to revolutionize car purchases in Nigeria by providing exceptional customer service, transparency, reliability, fair pricing, and convenience.
