 Betacar launches to help simplify car ownership in Nigeria

Betacar, a second car eCommerce platform has launched to help Lagos residents to easily own cars and save money and time unlike what they are used to.

By visiting, a user identifies the car they want to buy then head to the offline car lot located at Lekki, Lagos to test drive before making a final decision. The platform will also allow users to pay for their choice of cars in installments.  

According to Betacar CEO, Lou Odunuga, Betacar is set to raise the bar in the Nigerian automotive industry to ensure convenience for car buyers in Nigeria.

Having worked with top Silicon Valley brands like Yahoo, Accenture and as a Director with Etisalat, there is more than enough experience and expertise in ensuring convenience for buyers. 

“Every customer will be treated with the utmost respect and quality service. Our goal is to become Nigeria’s most preferred destination for used cars” said the Ex Yahoo, Accenture and Etisalat executive. 

The platform is marketing itself as the country’s most affordable platform with top quality cars and is banking on trust to end the fraud that has clouded the used car market. Users either pay more for their cars or are defrauded of their money from unscrupulous second-hand car dealers.  

“The Company has come to give power to the buyer by ensuring they choose quality and affordability at the same time. We do not always have to compromise one for the other.” said Head of Marketing, Betacar, Ifeoluwa Dare-Johnson.

Betacar is borrowing a leaf from Cars45 and promises to certify cars and rightly price them to ensure their prices are not exaggerated. Betacar also provides its users with car quality checks and diagnostics reports.

“We are building a car buying experience that’s honest, transparent and all about you,” said the firm. “Our cars are rigorously inspected for quality assurance to ensure zero mechanical faults for your peace of mind. We make sure you find the best cars for your need and offer it to you at the best prices possible. What you see on our site is what you pay.”
