In today’s rapidly evolving automotive landscape, OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) are embracing innovation to meet the changing preferences of their customers. Recent industry trends have shown:

  • 10–25% of global automotive sales will be fully online by 2025 ( A future beyond brick and mortar – disruptive change ahead in automotive retail , McKinsey & Company, 2020).
  • OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers believe software-defined vehicles can increase profitability by $2,600 per car in the high-volume segment and up to $7,500 per car for premium segments ( Chasing the Software-Defined Dream Car , BCG, 2021).
