“There’s a lot of money out there even today” – Charlie Chesbrough, Senior Economist, Cox Automotive

On this episode, Charlie talks with our host Derek D about the ways in which Cox Automotive is uniquely positioned to analyze a wealth of data, why he’s no fan of strategies that involve pricing over MSRP, and why the microchip shortage is just one facet of a much larger supply chain issue. Plus, he discusses pricing discipline (and why it’ll be key in the near future), how long the auto industry can maintain a seller’s market, and more.

Episode Highlights:

  • Why the brands that are coping the best with the chip shortage have shifted in the past year-plus
  • The ways in which franchised, multi-point dealers are able to leverage the current market better than independent dealers
  • The shared plans of the Biden administration and major domestic car makers to shift the supply chain long-term
  • How economic growth could combine with scrapping percentages to form a huge demand spike in the used car market
