Car subscription is still a relatively new concept. Although vehicle subscriptions have been available from certain service providers for some time, it is only recently that this segment of the automobile industry has really started to take off and register on the radar of motorists across the country. The question on many industry watchers’ lips now is this: Exactly what effect are subscription vehicles likely to have on auto sales in the coming years? Although we don’t have a crystal ball on hand, we’re going to attempt to answer this question by looking at some of the biggest factors currently at play.
There are several factors in play right now that could help to generate a significant rise in the demand for car subscription services.
These are the main factors that many experts believe will help car subscription services to become a disruptive force in the automobile industry in the future. But what benefits do these subscription services have to offer that address the above-mentioned factors and what makes these services more attractive than the alternatives? Primarily, leasing, renting or buying?
It’s easy to understand how financial uncertainty would make people less interested in parting with a large sum of money for a car; and it’s a simple fact that younger generations are not as enamoured with car ownership as their parents and grandparents were. What we need to consider now is how car subscription services overcome these issues and, in the process, appeal to today’s consumers.
For many people all over the world, subscription vehicles are becoming a very appealing alternative to car ownership and this trend looks set to continue in the coming years.
There is really only one practical step that auto manufacturers and dealers can take to mitigate the impact car subscription services may have on their businesses, and that is to offer these services themselves. Some manufacturers have already started to do just this, and more are sure to join them in the future.
