No more common beliefs about online vehicle sales!

Whether selling groceries, clothing, or medications, the closure of “non-essential” businesses during the COVID-19 crisis has prompted many retailers to turn to e-commerce. More than ever, everyday items are being sold online in just a few clicks, even locally. What about cars?

Society is changing every day and as new dealers equip themselves to sell vehicles 100% online, increasingly connected consumers are happily opting for an online shopping experience. But many misconceptions still tend to discourage more cautious consumers. Let’s set the record straight!

From February to May 2020, while retail sales fell dramatically, online sales more than doubled (+110.8 compared to last year!).1

Selling vehicles online is obviously part of this increase. Consumers have acquired new behaviours.

About 40% of Canadian consumers are Millennials, an ultra-connected and mobile generation. They are very influenced by customer reviews of models and dealers and are generally impatient. They are used to conducting transactions at a fast pace, which makes them want to buy their car online quickly, simply and without having to travel. 2

Millennials are the perfect target for online vehicle sales, but with the recent health situation, all age groups have started to shop online, often supported by millennials who give them confidence in the technology.

The impressive amount of data available to users on the internet makes it the #1 source of information for vehicle buyers. But dealership visits are not far behind and hold 2nd place, well ahead of recommendations from family and friends or on TV. 

And even when they search for information online, dealer websites and apps remain their 2nd source, just behind Google Search and well ahead of YouTube or manufacturer websites.2
