COSTA MESA, Calif., March 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AU.TO, the Google for cars, goes beta with the largest truly organic search engine for cars.
AU.TO is a true search engine akin to Google in terms of speed, breadth, and ease of use, but it is tailored specifically for cars. AU.TO has been designed to deliver the best car buying and selling experience possible. Like Google, AU.TO crawls the web seeking out cars for sale, collecting both vehicle and dealer data, and sorting vehicles based on user predicted interest, thereby providing custom-tailored search results for individual users. AU.TO features a lightning fast, text-based search, yielding results in milliseconds, not minutes. It also provides the first user-predicted interest algorithm for online car shopping: Think Pandora for cars.
With 2.1 million used vehicles processed daily, it is the single largest index of used cars for sale anywhere (200k-500k more used cars than autotrader.com & cars.com). Unlike the other sites in the space, AU.TO listings are processed in near real-time; allowing customers to find cars possibly days before they will be listed elsewhere.
"We are poised to capture the hearts and minds of consumers seeking fast, timely, and relevant information on buying and selling vehicles," says Aaron Rosenthal, AU.TO CEO. "By providing more information in a faster timeframe, we help consumers spend less time shopping and buying and more time driving."
Adds Rosenthal, "We have been running in stealth mode since December and after getting listed on Product Hunt (www.producthunt.com/posts/auto) this week, going from 200 to 10,000 users in a week makes us feel like the three years of hard work is going to pay off. AU.TO's team boasts experience from CERN, NASA, MIT, Microsoft, AutoTrader, TrueCar, Autobytel and Dealix. We're not a bunch of auto executives. We are a bunch of really smart software developers with a passion for cars. Our vision will disrupt this industry forever."
