“2019 was a disappointing year for the automotive industry, but we will see a rebound in 2020, with car companies pushing electrification, next-generation connectivity features, digitalisation across its value chain, and an evolution from being car companies to tech companies,” Singh said.
The launch of online sales platforms is poised to redefine automotive retailing. It is just one factor driving the high rate of new vehicles sales around the globe, which is expected to continue to grow in 2020.
“Alternative forms of vehicle ownership, including subscriptions and fleet services, will be a critical part of an automotive OEM’s bottom line and, thus, it is vital that carmakers focus their efforts on rendering this proposition increasingly attractive to customers,” Singh continued.
Connected, electrified, autonomous and modular vehicle architectures are expected to be key requirements for Gen Z customers. These will be ever-more critical parameters to satisfy for future car buyers.
