Set Alert for Markets

North America Automakers Outdo August Expectations; Q4 Outlook Up 12% Year/Year

Although supply-chain disruptions still are creating volatility, and keeping most automakers from building to capacity, starting with an overbuild from expectations in August, there appears some upside to production, or at least more stability, to the final four months of the year.

September U.S. Light-Vehicle Sales Tracking to 5-Month High

Despite the amount of pent-up demand waiting to be tapped, without an increase in incentives combined with dealers selling fewer vehicles above sticker price, waning availability of affordable offerings on dealer lots will cause sales gains to lag the expected growth in inventory.

The Future of Automotive Retail

Dealers ripped up their business models, embraced efficiencies and slashed waste to survive the unexpected challenges of the past few years, including the chip shortage, COVID, the war and other events that caused cultural changes. At the same time, they shifted processes in sales, service, parts, and F&I to best serve customers with both electrified and internal combustion engines.

Most dealers met those challenges and continue to see profits grow despite ongoing inventory shortages. Those embracing technologies have the best chance of maintaining and accelerating that momentum, especially as EVs populate the sales offerings, during the upcoming years.

This session outlines dealers' concerns about their businesses, EV adoption and what technologies they are anxious to explore as they seek to meet challenges that include staffing shortages, EV service and parts, hybrid sales processes, and F&I transparency that satisfies consumers and regulators.
