Transforming car sales in a perfect storm
Dr. Andreas Schlosser, Dr. Philipp Seidel
The effects of the COVID-19 crisis on automotive markets highlight the fragility of the traditional car distribution system and intensify the existing need for change. Ongoing transformations such as EV sales, new car ownership models, process digitalization, and new sales models will challenge financially weakened retailers even more. This is the time to accelerate change processes by reviewing and adapting strategies and investment plans, although financial resources will be limited over the next years.
Automotive: Accelerating disruption through creative destruction
Dr. Andreas Schlosser, Dr. Philipp Seidel, Florent Nansé
Thanks to the rise of electric vehicles, digital and new ownership models, the automotive market was already facing unprecedented disruption. As this article explains, the impact of COVID-19 on newcar sales accelerates the need for radical change – now is the time to turbocharge transformation efforts and seize opportunities to thrive in a post-ICE era.
Win the automotive COVID-19 rebound
Dr. Andreas Schlosser, Florent Nansé, Dr. Ninghua Song, Dr. Philipp Seidel
Economic lockdowns in the COVID-19 crisis have quickly and severely compromised the automotive supply chain and dealerships in unprecedented ways – car sales dropped by up to 80 percent in one month and production was stopped for weeks. The recession after the crisis will cut global car demand by multi-digit percentages in 2020, followed by a slow recovery that will lag behind GDP rebound by one or two years.
Effective electric vehicle launch in Europe – Thinking beyond big markets
Dr. Andreas Schlosser, Dr. Philipp Seidel, Alexander Krug
From 2017 to 2018, electric vehicle sales in EU/EFTA countries grew significantly, by almost 40 percent (Battery Electric Vehicle (BEVs) at almost 50 percent). The EV share of sales was, however, only at 2.3 percent – more than half of which were BEVs. Markets in the region developed very differently, with approximately 25 percent of all BEV sales driven by Norway. Nonetheless, to meet ambitious emission reduction targets and emerging customer demand, and to benefit from growing government support, car manufacturers are starting to launch EVs in smaller European markets as well.
