“5G connectivity will allow automakers to maintain or increase the value of vehicles after the sale, which will change the calculation of the residual value of vehicles. This, in turn, will affect the leasing economy and the market value of both new and used cars. “– said Roger Lanctot, director of connected mobility at Strategy Analytics.
Analysts agree that 5G connectivity will stimulate the creation of advanced driver assistance systems, which in turn will reduce the likelihood of collisions and facilitate the transition to autopilot in general. It is predicted that over time, cars connected to 5G will take an increasing share of sales in volume terms.
