Gran Turismo Car Center

When car sales is done via the internet

What if you are a new player in the automotive market and will sell you cars via the internet. Par example as electric car manufacturer starting to sell EV in Europe.
You need an outlet that people like and feel home. Make sure the buyer wants to come back and know where to go for advice and service.

When electric vehicles need no workshop maintenance and repair services anymore

The simple things like tire change, wiper blade change and interior filter change can be done by any fast fitter.
Is it affordable to have brand dedicated workshops every 50 km without knowing if they have any work to do? Can a workshop afford to invest in all the required equipment not knowing when it will pay off?

When car profits are only realized with the sales of a new car

Car sales profit margins will be challenging since all manufacturer of EV have to compete with US and Chinese EV car manufacturers. Tesla and Chinese car manufacturer are fully and only concentrating on EV technology.
Lessons learned: solar cell production on high tech European machines all went to China since labour wages are much lower in China than in Europe and the Chinese government supported the Chinese manufacturers a bit more than the European governments did. Is it profitable to have a brand dedicated dealer network without having a profit margin for that?

About the EV business model

  • The competition in car sales will become stronger and the profit margins will be under pressure

  • A buyer of a car wants to be sure that when he/she has a problem with the car, the service location is known
  • A buyer of a car wants to be sure guarantee issues and updates are correctly handled
  • A buyer does not want to buy at a dealer if the car price is substantial higher than on the internet
  • A buyer of a car wants to be sure that the car can be sold after a year or a few years at a reasonable price
  • Maintenance service is needed with low interval periods and with a much lower turnover value
  • Making high profits with car maintenance and car services is not feasible with EV
  • Traditional car service dealers and workshops will have problems with ROI of equipment
  • Cars full of warning and emergency sensors have less accidents than cars without sensors
  • Car body repair with cars full of sensors requires high skilled craftmanship support and expensive equipment
