autobiz launches its barometer to better understand a market in upheaval

Covid-19, Europe’s push for electric vehicles, the semiconductor crisis: over the past year, the automotive market has seen some brutal changes. To put these developments in the used car world into perspective, autobiz is launching a monthly barometer.

The car valuation specialist is launching its monthly barometer, showing changes in new car sales volumes and used car sales volumes in relation to used car stocks recorded by professionals. This data will be cross-referenced to determine the liquidity and market value, providing a more detailed perspective. Based on autobiz’s expertise in the daily analysis of used car sales on the Internet and its 13 years of data on the French market, these barometers can be downloaded free of charge from the corporate.autobiz.com website.

This data will also be relayed by the Journal de l’Automobile. A specialist in the various areas of motor vehicle distribution for over 40 years, the Journal de l’Automobile is the leading weekly magazine for decision-makers in brand networks. With a readership of 48,000 people at the heart of professional decision-making, JA is now the leading publication for senior managers and decision-makers in the automotive industry. From April onwards, newsletter subscribers will receive, on the first Wednesday of each month, a statistical study of the automotive market, including autobiz data.

Having witnessed major changes in the market, we feel it is important to provide motoring professionals with an account of the state of the market over this period. We are delighted that our data can be used and relayed by the Journal de l’Automobile, of which we are regular readers. Their teams have shown themselves to be receptive to our barometer, proof that the data we are able to provide them with is of real interest in understanding and analysing the market.
