BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Penske Automotive Group, Inc. (NYSE:PAG), a diversified international transportation services company, announced today that it has adopted CarShop as its global brand for its used vehicle SuperCenters. The company has renamed its six U.S.-based used vehicle SuperCenters from CarSense to CarShop (www.carshop.com). Joining with the existing eleven U.K.-based CarShop used vehicle SuperCenters, the combined entity will form one global CarShop brand that makes car buying easy.
CarShop offers high quality vehicles with transparent, up-front, no-haggle pricing, and a money-back guarantee. Additionally, using the digital tools available on www.carshop.com, consumers shopping online may choose from thousands of vehicles, obtain customized, personalized payments on every vehicle, and schedule a home delivery for a seamless purchase experience completely (100%) online.
Penske Automotive Group CEO Roger Penske remarked on the CarShop rebranding, "With this name change, we are taking the next step in the development of a global used vehicle SuperCenter brand. In 2020, the used vehicle SuperCenters sold over 50,000 used units and generated over $1 billion in revenue. By the end of 2023, our goal is to expand CarShop from 17 locations to 40, grow annual unit sales to 150,000, and increase revenue to $2.5 to $3.0 billion, more than doubling the size of the existing business while generating earnings before taxes of approximately $100 million."
