Wagonex was the UK’s first car subscription service when it launched in 2016. In 2022, it announced a strategic investment from Admiral which will support the company’s growth plans and strengthen its vision to become a key player in a global sector, forecast to be worth $30bn by 2030.
Toby Kernon, CEO and the Founder of Wagonex said:
“We continue to be one of the most ambitious and active car subscription services in the UK and beyond, and as part of this, it’s imperative that we have a product team that is continuously improving and enhancing our offering.
“The sector is fast-growing and we can’t afford to rest on our laurels if we want to build on our strong UK position, as well as play a leading role in this rapidly expanding market which is changing how the world drives and owns vehicles.”
