European Automotive Industry Challenges
Business models offering car ownership
New business models emerging in the market are offering monthly subscriptions to consumers. They give access to vehicles, insurance, and maintenance when customers want. This makes it less likely for consumers to invest in the concept of owning a vehicle. Companies, therefore, are compelled to shift from traditional B2C channels to B2B channels.
