Electric-vehicle buyers demand new experiences – Opportunity for EV brands as VinFast to develop

Source: Mckinsey Research – Electric-vehicle buyers demand new experiences  Consumer attitudes toward electric vehicles are changing fast—and so are expectations of the car-purchasing experience. When buying an electric vehicle, consumers want an experience that matches their expectations of the car itself. That is, something exciting and innovative but also reliable and predictable. They expect to both transact online and negotiate with a real person, and they still need to take a test drive. However, the overall experience needs to be more seamless, more personalized, and more flexible than it was in the days of forecourt walkarounds. These are some of the findings of McKinsey’s latest Future of Auto Retail consumer survey, which polled more than 4,000 respondents globally, focusing on consumer sentiment around electrification, the car-purchasing experience, and innovations in automotive retail. The findings show that consumers expect an excellent experience but are not always sure that the industry is ready to meet their needs. In this article, we show how growth in demand for electric vehicles (EVs) is shaping the automotive retail journey. While consumers enjoy digital interactions, they are concerned about factors including opaque pricing, complexity in the configuration process, and variability between dealer offerings. When it comes…

The battle between the auto industry and the tech giants

To build connection systems for cars, manufacturers have tested and spent a lot of money on research and technology development, but they have faced too strong competition from the “big guys” ( Big Tech) technology. By “dominating” the field of car technology, Apple, Google or Amazon all intend to develop their own “empire” on existing platforms.   Customers spend less time in their cars than they do on their mobile phones in some regions, especially North America. “Big Tech” is gradually taking control of the digital future of the auto sector thanks to their unique tactics.  A partnership between a car manufacturer and a technology giant  As car infotainment displays become more and more smartphone-like, a mutually beneficial partnership between automakers and tech companies is beginning. This is beneficial because it contributes to improving the user experience and helps give birth to Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Baidu CarLife (in the Chinese market).  Today, instead of limiting consumers to a single connection, the majority of automakers offer all available smart protocols. With the advent of virtual assistants like Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa integrated into cars, things are moving faster and faster.  Digital technology is predicted to become a key component…
