An overview of our business
Our purpose is to lead car buying in the UK, whilst also evolving the wider automotive ecosystem. We aim to improve the process of buying and selling vehicles in the UK, by continually evolving the ecosystem to provide a better experience for consumers, retailers and manufacturers alike.
Auto Trader is a 100% digital business. Starting life as a local classified magazine in 1977, we’ve grown and evolved alongside our customers. In 2013, we successfully completed the transition from a print title and became a fully digital marketplace. Our rich history gives us nearly 40 years of brand heritage and trust - unusual among online companies.
Auto Trader listed on the London Stock Exchange in March 2015 and is now a member of the FTSE 100 Index.
