Get Ready for AADA 2024!

The 2024 AADA Convention & Expo is set to be a game-changer for the automotive industry. Among the many exciting sessions, the CarExpert Feature Panel, “The Rise of EV China and What it Means for Australia,” stands out. This session, part of the Sovereign Insurance General Session, will dive deep into how Chinese electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers are reshaping the Australian market.

Embracing Electrification

We’re witnessing a remarkable shift in the automotive world, with a quarter of all new vehicles now featuring some form of electrification. This trend is driven by growing environmental awareness and regulatory demands for cleaner transportation. What’s particularly interesting is the surge of Chinese EV brands making their way to Australia. With over a dozen Chinese brands set to launch, we’re on the brink of a significant market transformation.

Spotlight on Chinese EV Brands

Paul Maric, the founder of CarExpert, will lead an in-depth discussion on these emerging brands, their vehicles, and innovative distribution models. Chinese manufacturers like BYD, NIO, and XPENG are not just bringing advanced technology and competitive prices but are also challenging traditional dealership models. Their robust manufacturing and technological prowess position them as major contenders in the global EV market.

Engaging Panel Discussion

Joining Paul Maric, an expert panel including Chris Catchpoole, will explore the broader implications of this market shift. They’ll discuss how Australian consumer behavior is changing with the influx of new EV options and what this means for local dealers. Key discussion points will include:

Consumer Sentiment: What drives consumers towards Chinese EVs?
Market Dynamics: How will the entry of these brands affect competition and pricing?
Dealer Adaptation: How can dealerships adapt and thrive in this evolving landscape?

The rise of Chinese EVs presents both challenges and opportunities for Australia. This session at AADA 2024 will be essential for industry stakeholders looking to navigate these changes effectively. By staying informed and adaptable, Australian dealers can leverage this evolving market to meet the needs of today’s consumers.

Driving Decisions: Turning Car Buying Excitement into Closed Sales

Empowering Dealers with Innovative Fintech to Seal the Deal

With Media touting high inflation, fluctuating interest rates, and the spectre of a recession looming, it’s no wonder that Australian consumers are feeling nervous about borrowing money for assets. Despite this, the demand for car finance remains robust.
