We talk to Peter Viljoen CEO of Sydsen. Peter talks about the New Car Agency distribution model and the experiment Mercedes and BMW have done in South Africa. Peter goes into what he believes are the successful outcomes of the experiment where original equipment manufacturers look to sell cars directly to the public and car dealerships are only used for car delivery. Peter also delves into the future of automotive distribution and what he believes will be the main challenges.
Peter goes into detail on how this has impacted car sales volumes and improvements that could have been done in planning the implementation.
