About this report

The transition towards software-defined vehicles is already providing car makers with many opportunities that would not have been possible to capitalize on before the industry’s uptake of new technologies. At the center of this innovation is the opportunity to leverage these technologies to shift feature monetization from point-of-sale to after-sales.

Embedding these new experiences into the vehicle, with room to develop and expand them over its lifecycle, will require a strategic realignment for companies across the industry. Here, OEMs, vehicle brands, and new automakers will increasingly need to consider the overall ecosystem – understanding how best to adapt their individual organizations toward the SDV’s technological promises and stance as a potential ‘third living space’.
