The automotive industry is being turned upside-down by major changes. A perfect storm for challenging traditional ways and launching new services. Consumers demand more environmentally friendly ways of transportation and easily accessible digital services that seamlessly adapt to new needs and convenience-oriented lifestyles. A car subscription service provides the needed flexibility and bundles services that meet modern customers’ expectations.
Car subscription is expected to make a substantial impact on the Automotive industry. Car manufacturers and industry experts estimate that 20-30% of new car sales globally will be in the shape of a subscription service already by 2025.
The imove platform enables third-party players across industries like automotive, finance, insurance but also electricity and telecom, to use their white-label technology to offer car subscription as an alternative to car ownership or leasing. imove has also built an extensive fleet of electric vehicles in its own car subscription service. The imove service lets the end-user subscribe to an electric car for an all-inclusive monthly fee, including unique features like access to a weekend car, free mileage, home delivery, seasonal tire change at the customer’s home amongst others.
