Electronics and software in a modern vehicle now accounts for nearly 50 percent of the vehicle’s value, according to IHS Markit. Connected cars have also gradually become a larger share of cars sold in every region of the world. This webinar will cover how these developments may impact the vehicle service and repair industry, or the do-it-for-me industry, by forcing more customers into specific channels, such as franchised car dealers, who may be the only channel equipped with the tools and expertise to service these types of vehicle software. Bird will also shed light on consumer desirability of specific telematics, infotainment, comfort and safety features, desired telematics services and concerns with the idea of self-driving cars.
