Dealers have had a bumpy ride from closing physical sales, adjusting to online orders and now managing a strong recovery among production disruptions and low vehicle inventory. How are dealers coping and what are the implications for distribution post-pandemic? In this session, the National Automobile Dealers Association’s (NADA) chief economist provides an overview of what dealers can expect across new and used vehicle sales, prices and inventory.

He also explores what a changing product mix – including more electric vehicles – could mean for their future business and service models, and why vehicle logistics will remain important to dealers.
