Luxury car manufacturer Porsche India is all set to enter the used car business in the country. The Volkswagen-owned brand will make a formal announcement on its entry in the pre-owned luxury car segment on June 8. Porsche’s decision to enter the used luxury car segment comes amid a significant rise in sales of luxury vehicles in the country in recent times.

Porsche’s upcoming used luxury car unit, which will be known as Porsche Approved, will be launched during an official event in Kochi. The new platform will help customers to buy or sell their cars as well as exchange them seamlessly. Porsche will also help customers to get insurance and other essentials.
