Car dealers are reaching systems overload says Autofinity

Inaccurate and inconsistent vehicle information contained in as many as 300 disparate dealership systems is stifling growth, creating inefficiencies, and leaving dealer groups open to non-compliance irregularities, according to Autofinity’s CEO Andy Whitehair. “The multiple systems in the dealer’s eco system have specific purposes and tasks to fulfil but are not compatible and nor are they set up to collate rich data on each vehicle,” Whitehair said.

Ford trials ‘hands free’ EV charging

Ford has developed a prototype robot charging station that drivers operate via their smartphone from inside their electric vehicle (EV) in a bid to make using EVs more attractive to disabled drivers, people with reduced mobility and older people. The technology could enable disabled drivers to stay in the car while charging, or they could leave the car while the robot does all the work. A survey by the UK-based Research Institute for Disabled Consumers earlier this year found 61% of disabled people would consider buying an EV only if charging was made more accessible, while only 25% of non-EV drivers would currently agree to switching.
