SWITZERLAND: Consultant's in-house team to provide residual value data to GM Europe
General Motors has signed an agreement with EurotaxGlass's for the provision of strategic consultancy services, delivered via a dedicated team to be based at General Motors Europe (GME) fleet sales headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany.
EurotaxGlass's International will support GME's fleet and product management activity in 10 countries. The collaboration between the two companies focuses on residual value forecast and management. It also includes two car-to-market studies where a detailed prediction of the future market performance of vehicles will be provided at an early stage in their design and development.
The agreement is for a minimum period of one year, during which a monthly residual value assessment for 10 West European countries will be provided, as well as a residual value tracking facility in those same markets for selected GM models and key competitors. The two car-to-market studies are now in preparation, related to two specific markets.
