2020 Vision

In the first digital edition of 2020, Motor Finance takes a look at some of the most interesting stories affecting the automotive industry.

We investigate the drama surrounding former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn and his dramatic escape from Japanese custody.

We speak with Cox Automotive’s Philip Northard about the future of vehicle remarketing and the need for balance between physical and digital channels.

We take a peek into what the future of mobility may look like, with Hyundai and Uber recently unveiling plans for a flying taxi.

We also report from the annual Leasing Life conference, exploring some of the themes discussed throughout the day, including the digital future of leasing.

We offer insight from an exclusive interview with Kai Vogler, head of sales Europe for Volkswagen Financial Services AG, who discusses the motor finance industry on the continent and what the future may hold.

Finally we turn our attention to the technology race for in-car entertainment, with manufacturers jostling to find differentials for consumers considering a car purchase.

All that’s left to do is to make yourself a tea or coffee, sit back and enjoy the issue!
