Autoelectro delivers on obscure references

Published:  05 July, 2018

A Maybach 62 and Jaguar XJ-S 6.0 V12 alternator are the latest requests from Autoelectro customers across the UK and around the globe. While Autoelectro stocks its fastest-moving part numbers to ensure rapid delivery, it will accept even the most obscure requests and, in the UK, customers usually receive their order the next working day. As well as the Maybach 62 and Jaguar XJ-S references, Autoelectro recently sold a Lotus Elan M100 1.6 alternator, as well as a 1974 Porsche 914 1.8 alternator and a 2017 Toyota Auris 1.2 alternator – highlighting its capability of catering for the oldest and newest models.

  • Don’t join the gold rush, sell shovels  

    Futurologists have predicted it for years, but now, it’s actually starting to happen. The impact of the sharing economy on the automotive industry has upended the status quo and companies are scrambling to gain first-mover advantage within a radically reconfigured marketplace.

    In the US, in March 2018 alone, an Ohio dealership launched a monthly subscription package that allows customers to switch between different brands of luxury cars, and GM announced a plan to allow their customers to rent their cars directly to each other. Meanwhile, ride-hailing is rapidly taking share from traditional car rental in Certify customers’ business travel expenses.
    In the UK, a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) App called Whim is in trial in the Midlands, offering unlimited public transport, hire cars and short taxi rides for a fixed monthly payment of £440. Meanwhile, personal contract purchase (PCP) deals – essentially car rental, with the option to pay off the rest of the car’s value after three years – have already become the preferred method of new vehicle purchase.
        
    The problem is that hundreds of companies in the automotive world have set their sights on the same goal: To be the go-to choice for consumers. That’s fine if you have billions to invest in marketing, but if you’re not at the level of Ford, Uber or Google, that fight is going to get ugly. Rental agencies, dealerships, and business leasing providers – all of whom are used to owning customer relationships in the pre-mobility world – are among those who are going to be out-gunned.

    The good news is that there are two clear ways for businesses to thrive in this new marketplace in a way that won’t be disrupted by technological advances. Both strategies involve selling to businesses rather than consumers, which means they can deliver sustainably higher margins without requiring a huge spend on marketing and customer acquisition.

    Strategy one: Sell a service to the dominant platforms
    The most obvious low-risk, high-reward model is to provide an indispensable service to enable the mobility being sold by others. This would involve contracting with whatever mobility platforms dominate, be it Ford, Uber or Waymo, Alphabet’s self-driving car unit. A business might decide to become the leading company that deliver services around.
