SAUDI ARABIA, October 20, 2020 / -- • The Saudi Traffic Department introduced the facility for online transfer of ownership for sale of vehicles amidst the Covid-19 lockdown to enable transfer without requiring a periodic technical inspection. This move is expected to facilitate used car sales in the future due to increase ease for buyers & sellers.
• The adoption of online channels for purchasing cars is rapidly increasing as a spill-over of the Covid-19 pandemic. SyarahOnline, the recently launched e-commerce car service of Syarah, sold ~420 new & used cars prior to the VAT increment.

Shift towards Online Platforms: In order to tap the more consumers, many authorized dealerships are expected to increase their presence online. Along with listing of used car inventory online, some dealerships are planning to develop e-commerce platforms to sell used cars and to enable 100% online end-to-end transactions from the convenience of the homes without having to visit the showrooms.

Increasing Demand for SUVs & Crossovers: Although traditionally, sedans have dominated the used car sales in the Kingdom, recently there has been increasing demand for SUVs & crossovers. SUVs and crossovers are suitable for the hot & harsh climatic conditions in the country and have relatively longer ownership period.

Leveraging Latest Technologies: The online platforms as well as dealerships looking to expand their presence online, plan to implement latest technologies such as 360 degrees 3D view of the interiors & exteriors, artificial intelligence to leverage consumer behavioural insights and more in order to create a better user browsing experience. These technologies along with the provision of detailed vehicle history & inspected reports are expected to be a game changer in the market.
