Indicata, a business intelligence kit that combines machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data, analyzes more than 450 thousand used vehicle data daily by scanning the used online vehicle market in Turkey.

The sales data in the report is based on the advertisement data of more than 40 thousand institutions and organizations engaged in second-hand trade in the online market. These include listing sites such as sahibinden, Arabam, Letgo, and VavaCars, as well as corporate second-hand websites of OEMs, institutions and platforms where high volume sales are made, such as Leaseplan, Intercity and OtokoƧ. The figures do not contain data on individual vehicle advertisements.

Institutions engaged in second-hand trade on the online platform are withdrawing the advertisements of the vehicles they offer for two reasons.

First, it revises the prices of the vehicles in the advertisement according to the changing market conditions and publishes the advertisement again. Indicata also monitors when these ads are re-published. Secondly, the trading institution withdraws from the ad because it has sold its broker and publishes an ad for a broker that it will re-sell. This second group of vehicle listings, that is, vehicles that are completely removed from the listing, are considered “for sale”.
