June Forums: what will the car parc look like in 2025?

The BVRLA regularly gathers experts from across membership and beyond to spark discussion as part of its programme of specialist forums. Insights on Residual Value and Remarketing (RVR) and Vehicle and Fleet Management (VFM) equip attendees to tackle any challenges coming down the tracks.

To be held at GWM ORA in Solihull on Thursday 13 June, the next RVR Forum will feature a session on what the car parc is going to look like in 2025, following the first full year of the ZEV Mandate and the influx of new manufacturers. Steve Carmen of Indicata will lead the session and examine what this means for residual values.

Rachael Jones from Auto Trader will provide an update on changing consumer habits, retailer stock movements, pricing, and an overview of the LCV market. Trends for electric vehicles will be compared to the traditional ICE space on both new and used vehicles.

A future looking session will follow from Owen Edwards of Grant Thornton. This will look at how the building of cars will change in the future and how this will impact costs. Owen will also explore how battery technology will change, and the impact software-defined vehicles will have.

Falling the week before the RVR session, the VFM Forum will take place at Toyota in Derbyshire on Thursday 6 June. The June agenda will present an exploration into the latest advancements in vehicle technology. Discussions will delve into the future of autonomous and connected vehicles, developments in accident management, and the impact of electric vehicles on our roads and environment.

Delegates will hear from industry experts representing the SMMT, Fleet Assist, SG Fleet and FMG about the emerging technologies shaping the future of transportation.

Attending the BVRLA’s forums requires an annual subscription fee. A limited number of spots are still available and can be secured via the RVR Forum page or VFM Forum page. Each subscription grants a member two tickets to each forum.
