Temasek-backed CarTrade has added $55m to its coffers, one year after closing a $141m funding round that featured the Singaporean government venturing firm.

India-based online automotive classifieds service CarTrade, has raised $55m in funding co-led by Singaporean government-owned investment firm Temasek, the Economic Times wrote today.

The round was co-led by a US-based family office, though its identity has not been revealed.
