Last year John Ellis, Connectivity Strategist and former Global Technologist of the Connected Car Program at Ford, shared a fantastic presentation on ‘The Zero Dollar Car’ at the Auto Captives Summit.
John Ellis predicts that the traditional format whereby an auto dealer sells a car, and its associated finance product, is set to become an out-of-date business model.
By 2020, 90% of all new cars will have networking ability and become “connected cars”, offering finance companies the chance to stay in contact with a customer throughout the car’s lifecycle.
Technology companies see this as the chance to create a mobile eco system, which will allow marketers to harvest, analyze and process data to be monetarized.
This will make existing processes more streamlined and cost efficient and could potentially see the rise of the ‘Zero Dollar Car’ as the next development stage.
If you missed last year’s presentation you can watch it here.
This year John Ellis returns to The Auto Captives Summit to share more insights into the Zero Dollar Car and to share:
- What other industries are doing to counteract what appears to be an inevitable future
- How these other efforts can be applied within the Automotive Captive Finance industry
- The outline of a new role for the Automotive Captive Finance professional within the automotive OEM.
