Plunkett Research now provides complete coverage of the Coronavirus’s effects on specific industries, via both our industry almanacs and our Plunkett Research Online system.
The Coronavirus pandemic of 2020 had a profound effect on the global automobile industry.  Vast shifts in where and how people work, as well as travel habits, are impacting automotive usage, sales, maintenance, production and development.
More than ever, car and truck drivers are shopping for their vehicles online.  Extremely low interest rates are enabling dealers to offer very low monthly payments.
While business travel has plummeted, many consumers are taking their vacations close to home.  Consequently, some consumers are investing in new cars, while other drivers are investing in timely maintenance of their vehicles, keeping them road-worthy so that travel can be made by car, truck or RV rather using airlines.
Automotive factories have reopened after the initial shutdown in the spring of 2020, with extensive new safety protocols in place.  Absenteeism may be a problem if workers cannot find childcare or are worried about contracting the virus.
