The Corona-crisis, the German economy grew strongly shaken, but the long-term effects are not yet discernible. Even if the dealerships were allowed to open at the end of April, under strict conditions, the automotive industry is one of the most severely impacted industries. But every crisis also offers a Chance.

So, back to the Old one? Not quite. The way we buy cars and sell has changed. And also the vehicles which the drivers are looking for in this country especially.The new reality: holidays in their own country
