Attitudes towards purchasing cars online after Covid-19 in the UK, China, and India

As the e-commerce industry becomes a prominent platform for converting sales globally amid the Covid-19 pandemic, attitudes toward buying a car online remain considerably hesitant, according to a survey conducted by Capgemini in May 2020. Respondents from the UK, at 32 percent, proved less likely to buy their future cars online from an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) or dealership, while respondents from India (44 percent) and China (49 percent) claimed they would buy their car online in the future. It is clear from these statistics that some reluctance toward purchasing cars online in the future still remains.
