Webinar: COVID-19’s Impact on the China Market and the Detroit Three: An Insider’s View

May 6, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

COVID-19 has disrupted the global automotive industry and has exposed numerous challenges for the automotive industry.

China, the world’s largest market, experienced the setbacks first seeing car sales collapse 80% in February and 45% in the first quarter. What can we learn from China, and how will China’s struggles and recovery efforts impact the rest of the world?

Key discussion points include:

  • China’s 2020 sales could fall 20% or between 4-5 million vehicles.
  • The Detroit Three hit new lows in China.
  • Consolidation Pressures: Renault and Suzuki already forced out of the market. Who is next?
  • From China experience, what we can anticipate for the U.S. market in Q2.
