Dear Colleague,

I have recently attended the NADA Show 2020. With hundreds of exhibitors and workshops, NADA provided attendees with an insight into the US market and an ideal opportunity to meet with colleagues from around the world including a number of NFDA counterparts. Please find more details in the news.

This week, Mark Garnier MP visited the All Electric Hyundai dealership in Kidderminster. Government’s policies about emissions and incentives for consumers in the EV sector, as well as the contributions that the automotive retail sector makes to the UK economy were the main themes discussed.

The FCA has published its ‘Sector Views’ report where they assess the impact that changes in the financial services markets have on consumers. In the report, the FCA states that despite the improvements Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) insurance still causes harm to consumers. We will keep you updated.
