Brands will need to decide if they should emulate this model or find another path.
Connected Car Vision
With connectivity becoming the norm, vehicles will be the next battleground to vie for people’s digital attention, opening avenues for expansion. Now is the time to invest in new revenue streams through offerings like aftermarket upgrades, infotainment systems, fleet management solutions, and cloud-based telematics.
