The landscape of car dealers and the traditional way of buying and owning cars is changing rapidly. Emerging trends such as ride-hailing, car sharing and subscription services are changing the way people relate to mobility and personal vehicles, moving away from vehicle ownership towards ‘vehicle usership’.
To adapt and compete in this market, car dealers have started to develop and sell mobility solutions on top of their traditional services. In this virtual event, our speakers shared their knowledge of the evolving sector and how as main car dealership groups, they have developed new mobility solutions.
