Abstract

In June 2020, Patrick Pelata, former COO of Renault, expressed doubts about the future of the franchised dealership system, so dear to all vehicle manufacturers. The automotive industry faced huge adaptation problems, including the need to short-circuit the dealer system, whose economics he did not understand. Liberated from his former obligation to toe the party line, he could of course now think the unthinkable and say the unspeakable. These doubts have, however, been around for a long time.
