Digital to revolutionize the purchase of used cars in Europe

A pioneer in its field, Aramis Group has become in just a few years a European leader in the online multi-brand purchase and sale of used cars. Now a key player in its market, Aramis Group allows anyone to switch vehicle where, when and how they want within 48 hours.

Since 2001, the Group has been developing its offer with the ambition of becoming the preferred European platform to buy a used car online. To achieve this, the Group relies on 4 levers:

  • Digital platforms with strong customer value proposition.
  • Highly efficient, scalable and vertically integrated end to end platform allowing a perfect control of the value chain, from trade-in to delivery, including the refurbishment and sale of vehicles.
  • Data driven approach underpinned by proprietary tech and digital tools for a perfect knowledge of the market, customer expectations and needs.
  • Founder-led, passionate and experienced teams, sharing a strong corporate culture at the service of the customer experience.

A long-term capital and strategic alliance with Stellantis

Since 2016, Aramis Group has created a long-term capital and strategic alliance with the PSA Peugeot-Citroën Group (now Stellantis). Through this partnership, Stellantis has become the majority shareholder of the Group. Thanks to a unique and privileged relationship, Aramis Group benefits from strong sourcing capabilities that allow it to offer a wide and diversified range of used cars to its customers.

With its brands Aramisauto, Cardoen and Clicars, respectively leaders in France, Belgium and Spain, and now CarSupermarket in the United Kingdom, Aramis Group aims to become the preferred platform for Europeans to buy a used car online.

In 2021, Aramis Group accelerated its European expansion through the acquisition of a majority stake in the British platform CarSupermarket.com.
In 2018, Aramis Group continued its international development and established itself in Belgium with the acquisition of Cardoen, a historical player and leader in its market.
In 2017, the Group expanded its ambitions in Europe with the acquisition of a leading player in Spain: Clicars, a pioneer in online sales.
In 2016, Aramisauto launched home delivery everywhere in France. In the same year, the PSA Peugeot-Citroën Group (now Stellantis) and Aramis Group created a long-term capital and strategic alliance to accelerate the development of online sales of used vehicles and associated services.
In 2015, Aramisauto innovated once again and launched the first mobile application that allows customers to receive a fixed trade-in offer for their vehicle in 2 hours without having to leave their home.
In 2014, a first used vehicle refurbishment centre was opened in Donzère, France. More than 1,500 used cars, entirely refurbished by Aramisauto experts, are put on sale every month.
In 2011 the 100% satisfied or 100% refunded guarantee was launched, which gives customers 15 days to try out their vehicle, where they would only have 15 minutes at a dealership.
After 10 years of developing the digital platform and network in France, Aramisauto offered, in 2010, the trade-in of used vehicles with payment in 24 hours, a first in France.
Founded in 2001, Aramisauto has always innovated to reinvent automotive purchasing. Guillaume Paoli and Nicolas Chartier quickly established themselves as key entrepreneurs in the French Tech sector thanks to a digital platform that has been constantly evolving.
