Autovista has published a report looking at the remarketing risks of diesel, petrol and BEVs between now and 2025 in a move to separate fact from fiction.

The report looks at the risk positions and opportunities for diesel, petrol and BEV in eleven segments in the Big 5 European countries by 2025

Published more than three years since Dieselgate and among the ongoing shocks, the report is aimed at remarketing managers, product managers, leasing companies and fleet owners, who seek an objective and independent review of the risks and opportunities in order to take business decisions for market share or profit gains.

“Our clients want to benefit from the third electrification wave and are anxious about uncovered diesel remarketing risks. Our report separates fact from fiction by providing an objective assessment of the risk positions and opportunities for diesel, petrol and BEV in eleven segments in the Big 5 European countries by 2025,” explained Dr Christof Engelskirchen, managing director consulting & TCO Solutions at Autovista Group.

The report covers key questions:

  • How have the RVs of diesel and petrol cars developed over the past four years, particularly since Dieselgate erupted, and how does this differ by country and why?
  • Have BEV RVs benefited from this trend – and how have regulation and infrastructure affected their development? How do BEV RVs differ by country and why?
  • Are further declines of diesel RVs likely? If yes, by how much and in which countries and segments? How are petrol RVs reacting?
  • Should we expect a downward correction of BEV RVs, as a result of technology advances, vehicle supply rises and government incentives cease?

“In a portfolio of 20,000 vehicles every unanticipated 1%-point difference in RV performance results in a €2 million bottom-line impact,” added Engelskirchen. “At the same time, BEV sales are starting to rise and the vast majority of those will be offered in leasing arrangements. That risk needs to be absorbed and leasing companies and OEM networks need to establish accurate RV forecasts to participate in the third wave without creating massive exposure to remarketing risks.”
