Corporate Philosophy

Under this philosophy, we aim to be the only used car distribution company to operate the “purchasing system” and “selling system” under one brand and using “direct selling” to simplify the process to be the best franchise chain in the industry.


Car7 is the company that makes buying and selling cars much more enjoyable. Seeing as we’re going to the effort of choosing a car, we want to enjoy it. “Car7” was born in response to such voices.

We have revolutionized the system for the distribution and retail of cars in order to make choosing a car enjoyable, whatever the make and whether it be new or second-hand. Based on the results and knowhow of the car sales industry, we have drastically cut out several intermediate margins from the stocking to the sale of the car.

What’s more, our group sells a total of 200,000 vehicles each year. “No matter how many we sell, there are still not enough cars!” This impressive selling power of Car7 backs up the high-value buying of cars, and is constantly expanding.

The products are lined up neatly, the staff are very knowledgeable about the products, the service towards the customers is very polite…

It is often said that the used-car business up until now lacked the basics of the service industry. Car7 naturally offers the standard, fundamental services, as well as providing the sale of required parts, financial services such as loans and insurance, along with other useful services and products previously unheard of.

Working towards the dream of customers saying “When it comes to cars, it’s got to be Car7”, Car7 is pushing forward and making improvements every day.
