There’s a lot of discussion and speculation about the future of driving in blogs. You may have read articles about auto driving, connection vehicles, ride sharing, electrification, and artificial intelligence.

Just recently, we’ve seen a new project from a company called Fair, which they call “flexible ownership models.””. Consumers click on a mobile app, link their bank accounts and driver’s licenses, get approved loans within a few minutes, get financing, choose monthly payments, and pick up their cars shortly, without having to go into dealerships.

A real automatic car costs about 200 thousand dollars. The only way you can prove the cost of each car is to eliminate a professional driver. The personal dilemma of using the market is to get something affordable. You have the only way to have such 1.5 autonomous vehicles (monitored by the driver). ”
Current dealer purchase experience
Ten years later, the dealer’s experience will have to change. Today, average sales transactions at a dealership take three to four hours! However, most consumers limit their patience to about 90 minutes, according to a company called The Academy, which is the training center for retail professionals.

When they enter a dealer showroom, they don’t want to wait 20 minutes for a salesman who is ending up with another customer. Of course, you’re still impatient today when you’re ten years old.
