COVID-19: UK industry focus - Where next for automotive?

The automotive industry has been quick to feel the immediate effect of a widespread lockdown because of COVID-19, and in the short term the outlook is tough for the whole sector. 

Sales have fallen sharply, with dealership networks closed and manufacturing facilities either mothballed or repurposed to make ventilators, masks and other protective equipment.

Our experts discuss how, when lockdowns lift and consumer appetites return, automotive firms will have a choice to make: move back to business as usual, or to use this moment to create something better than before.

“For an industry that has traditionally been resistant to change, the COVID-19 crisis has overturned convention by imposing change and enforcing experimentation.”
