Carnation Auto is expanding rapidly and this latest addition takes Carnation Auto’s Pre-owned Car Outlet in India to thirty-four. This collaboration with Anand Automotives will enhance Carnation’s presence tremendously especially in Northern Part of India. Dehradun is known for its beautiful locales, training institutions and top schools. Some of the popular attractions of Dehradun include Indian Military Academy, Forest Research Institute, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, Doon School, Defence Research and Development Organisation and Ordnance Factories Board, Central Braille Press and many more.

Both up-market and mass segment cars will be available in this outlet. This will be Carnation’s first showroom in Uttarakhand. The pre-owned car industry in India is growing at the rate of 18-20% and the organized used car sector is witnessing a growth of 40% annually.

Carnation Auto is perfectly poised to leverage the opportunity since it has already established its leadership in the Certified Used Car Market. Carnation Auto is aggressively working in expanding its network to over 200 outlets in the next 2 years.

Providing value for money and customer satisfaction is the main goal of Carnation Auto. Associating with Anand Automotives makes Carnation more accessible to its customers that consequently provide the discerning car buyers with more choices on quality used cars in Uttarakhand. The stringent 118 point quality check and in-house refurbishment process at Carnation’s world class facilities strengthen the brand in its promise to deliver the most trustworthy certified used cars.

There are also 15 Carnation Auto Solution hubs located across India including Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Pune, Bangalore and more. These hubs provide world class solutions like car service & repair, warranty processing, cashless insurance claims and after sales support. Carnation Auto believes in delivering the best car buying experience through a committed to service, accessibility of outlets and skilled manpower. Customers willing to sell their cars also get tremendous value like fair price, honest and transparent transactions, exchange deals and clean documentation.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Jagdish Khattar MD & CEO Carnation Auto, commented, “I am happy with the fact that more and more people have shown interest in associating with Carnation. The used car industry is growing faster than the new cars segment in India. The demand for certified used cars with warranty is increasing rapidly. The robust increase in numbers is a good sign for the organized pre-owned car market. With the launch of this pre owned car showroom in Dehradun, we intend to cater to the surging demands for certified used cars of the north Indian market. Carnation Auto strives to provide the best certified pre-owned cars with an assuring 1 year comprehensive warranty and its signature 24/7 CARE service through the Carnation Assistance for Roadside Emergencies program. Peace of mind and value for money plays a big role while making a buying decision in the used car buyers mind. And we strive to deliver on both these fronts.” Speaking on the occasion Mr. Nimit Berry, Owner of Anand Automotives, commented, “I am very excited to work with Carnation Auto. This association will surely give us a brand name and expertise, which will consequently boost our sales and visibility in Dehradun and nearby places.”
