With over 40% of customers in Europe looking for financing in order to purchase their next car, this was something we wanted to improve. Through our partnership with solarisBank, we can now offer customers instant car financing with confirmation within as little as 10 minutes. The process is fast and safe, and a great example of how we’re integrating the latest fintech technology to create a seamless online car buying and financing experience that meets the demands of social distancing.Ewout van Jarwaarde, CEO of CarNext.com
