Quelle sells cars online

By Published on .

[Fuerth, Germany] In a move unpopular with car marketers, German mail-order giant Quelle has started selling cars online at rebates ranging from 10% for a Smart, made by DaimlerChrysler, to 22% for a Ford Motor Co. vehicle. All the cars, including Volkswagen's Golf and the Nissan Micra, are available in three colors. Quelle works with car distributor Carplus to arrange financing, repair service and trade-ins. Five million people applied to buy the 50 Smart cars Quelle sold in a lottery for just $1,990 each to promote its entry into the car market.
