  2. The car showroom today has become a platform to ” initiate the consumer to the touch and feel factor.And even in an online buying environment, consumers expect dealers to play a role by  providing test drives and service packages.
  3. Brazil and China top in the list of nations that are comfortable purchasing a car online ( 67% vs 57% ) India ranks 3 with 53% respondents positively inclined to buy a car online
  4.  For the past several years, about 40% of consumers have made it clear they want to have the ability to buy vehicles over the Internet (the complete end-to-end process). This is particularly pronounced in the developing markets of Brazil, India and China. The primary reason consumers cited was the expectation of a price discount, named by 36%  of respondents.
