The transition to electrification is creating unprecedented disruption in the auto industry. Dealers and manufacturers, with more than a century of experience selling internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, are forced to rethink how EVs will change their business. Charging capacity, electric infrastructure and production capabilities are often spoken about, but what about F&I? Join us as we identify future F&I needs and formulate a plan — with minimal disruption — to implement updated F&I solutions that will address both emerging EV and traditional ICE vehicles.
