Welcome to the second Autorola Group newsletter of the year
Welcome to the second newsletter of 2023. There is no shortage of activity within the global used market as it continues to throw up challenges for both buyers and vendors.
Used EVs continue to generate the most discussion. They are still selling slower than petrol and diesel used cars even though the fall in prices during recent months has helped increase demand and sales in some countries.
Average used prices are also now gently falling in Europe according to our latest INDICATA Market Watch report, except for Turkey where the country continues to write its own rules and in the UK.
The Netherlands features in our country profile where we talk to Frank Tanke about the country’s used landscape which is seeing many vehicles exported in search of maximising profits.
Treating Europe as one single used market is becoming more commonplace for leasing companies and OEMs as they use big data supplied by INDICATA to leverage price and demand.
Our interview with Jon Bulloch INDICATA’s European Business Development Director confirms the increased thirst for used vehicle data. The new agency model, cross border sales and the growing number of Chinese brands launching into Europe are all creating a demand for big data to help vendors make strategic remarketing decisions.
His team are already set up to provide the best live data and valuations. When combined with Autorola Solutions’ industry-leading back-end systems the proposition for vendors becomes even more powerful.
Its Fleet Monitor end-to-end asset and supply chain management system is popular with companies looking to improve their process mapping and overall asset management efficiencies.
Companies continue to search for these increased efficiencies as external factors continue to change the industry and their businesses. You can rest assured our Autorola, INDICATA and Solutions teams are working hard to help you face those industry challenges.
And while we have been interviewing colleagues from around the group Fleet Europe’s Frank Jacobs interviewed me about our group’s future plans. I shared news of our exciting plans for the group in 2023 and beyond as well as my thoughts on how residuals of Battery Electric Vehicles continue to change. I hope you enjoy the interview.
