Shift towards Online Platforms: In order to tap into the online used car market, many multi-brand and independent dealerships are expected to increase their digital presence. Along with listing used car inventory online through online portals, some dealerships are also investing in their own websites and Instagram pages. Used car platforms are likely to focus on developing a transactional marketplace to enable 100% online end-to-end transactions from the convenience of the homes without having to visit the showrooms.
Increasing Demand Hatchbacks & SUVs: Although traditionally MPVs have dominated the used car sales in Indonesia, recently there has been increasing demand for Hatchbacks or City Cars and SUVs. The cultural shift from large families to nuclear families and buying cars for individual needs are driving the demand for these cars.
Leveraging Latest Technologies: The online platforms as well as dealerships looking for expanding their presence online, plan to implement latest technologies such as 360 degrees 3D view of the interiors & exteriors, artificial intelligence to analyze car condition through pictures, and more in order to create a better user browsing experience. These technologies along with the provision of detailed inspection reports as well as services such as car financing and insurance on a single platform are expected to be a game-changer in the market.
