The electric revolution has had a significant impact on every sector of the motor industry. Both small parts distributors and major car manufacturers are expected to be affected by this transformation in various ways. What does this mean for the wider automotive industry?
In the motorcycle world, technology has become a key factor in improving performance, safety and comfort. As the world's leading provider of all detailed technical information on vehicles, Autodata has also focused on further research and development of innovative solutions for motorcycles. With its advanced technology and extensive motorcycle database, it thus sets completely new standards in the industry. Check out how Autodata revolutionized the motorcycle aftermarket:
Autodata is celebrating its enviable jubilee, so on this occasion it launched more than 350 technical training videos. They proudly point out that they now cover up to 99 percent of cars on the road and all key markets. The short courses are conducted by experts from all over the world, so they believe that in this way they will help repair shops to consolidate and develop their internal knowledge even more. With the new recordings, they also aim to help make every service technician prepared for all the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow.
Demand for electric and hybrid vehicles continues to be shaped by changing regulatory regimes worldwide. The sales of new petrol and diesel cars would be banned in most countries from 2030 onwards and this brings major changes also to the aftermarket. Autodata’s online workshop application is used by over 85,000 workshops worldwide, giving valuable insight into service trends. Between 2019 and 2021, usage of the wiring diagrams module increased by 46%, while usage of the Diagnostic Trouble Code search increased by 33%.
