Car shoppers are sending a clear message to automakers—they like the traditional dealer model and prefer to handle much of the shopping process in-person. Further, EV Intenders—respondents identified by EVForward as the next generation of EV buyers—show a keen interest in making the car dealer experience a core part of their information-gathering, shopping and decision-making processes.12 October 2021
