European Automotive Report

Are you involved in the automotive industry in Europe or are you just interested in the latest trends? If so then take a look at the latest Experteye European Automotive Report, you caould call it your "EAR" to the automotive ground! OK I apologise for the bad pun but as you will know I've always said keeping informed is hte best way to keep ahead and in teh fast changn world of automotive that is more relevant than ever.

I've just been supporting the Fleet Europe team on a few articles looking at everything from the connected car to the impact of "dieselgate" whilst also supporting clients in legal matters relating to the sale of ex-daily rental vehicles and other matters. Whilst these are emerging or at times distracting trends and issues it is the underlying facts which give us the best indication for how to plan for the future.

In this quarter's edition of the report we consider

  • How the long shadow of Brexit is affecting the financial markets - it's not all bad
  • In which direction the sale of new car sales is going in the coming year
  • When internal combustion engines may be banned and where
  • Which major European country could slip even further down the EU sales rankings
  • Where there is a new banking crisis looming
  • When the 2007 sales record for new cars may be beaten (and it's sooner than you may think!)
  • The outlook for future residual values
