Startup launches data driven car shopping website


CARHP is an up and coming startup catering to the US automobile market. It functions as an online autos information site that brings together in-depth reviews, ratings, comparisons and local listings for new and old cars.

CARHP is in its beta stage, however, their inventory already boasts a collection of over 2000 car reviews from 2016 to present.

CARHP is funded and incubated by – India’s foremost college search portal.  Till date, CARHP has a team size of more than 20 people. The team brings together young talent that is passionate about automobiles, and currently manages the entire data and content of the website.

According to a consumer-insight report from Google, the number of buyers who find their vehicle through online websites has been on a rise. Staggeringly, the number of websites that provide complete information for the car buying journey is quite low. Most of the websites manage to excel in only one front. Either they are content-centric or they provide car specifications that by themselves don’t simplify the car buying process. These websites fail to provide a one-stop solution to the buyers.

CARHP stands out as a different website. Instead of relying only on a single parameter, be it content, car specification or inventory at the local dealer. CARHP strives to bring content and inventory together with a special emphasis on data. Instead of relying just on content for a major car buying decision. Bringing data into perspective helps us to make a more informed decision.

In-depth car reviews published by CARHP use a unique approach to inform the users about their prospective buy. The car that is being reviewed is stacked against four closely matched competitors. In-depth tables which list out specifications are used along with reviews that accurately pit the car against the competition.

CARHP will reserve special space and attention for vehicles that are environment-friendly. A report from United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mentions that transportation accounted for the largest portion (28%) of total U.S. GHG emissions in 2016. All vehicles that use renewable energy sources significantly reduce the carbon footprint and ease the demand on consumption of fossil fuels as the primary energy source. At CARHP we advocate for usage of such vehicles in an extensive manner.
