Wednesday, Nov 17 @ 1-2pm ET
Speaker: Stewart Stropp, Senior Director, Automotive Retail, J.D. Power
Session title: Driving EV Adoption at Retail
Description: The EV paradigm shift is under way. EV sales are accelerating rapidly, but still make up only about 3% of retail share. A lot of factors will determine how quickly adoption increases here forward: technology, performance, price, infrastructure. But at a fundamental level, many everyday shoppers aren’t yet considering EVs due to an absence of two things: information and experience. Which stakeholders can fill these gaps—and capitalize in the process?
  • Everyone knows EV adoption is improving but still low, and everyone knows the key reasons for resistance: price, range, etc. What are some new angles on shopper resistance to EVs?
  • What can stakeholders do to overcome shopper resistance to EVs right now? Franchised dealers may be uniquely well positioned.
  • What are some interesting things to look for in terms of near-term EV market growth?
