What is E-Shop?
About six months ago, FCA launched what is now known as the E-Shop to help dealerships sell vehicles during the coronavirus pandemic. This high-end one-stop-shop platform was successful, increasing the percentage of monthly sales from internet leads by around 20%.
When you want to search for a new vehicle, you can easily go to the online store through different websites. Once on the platform, you can find your current car trade-in value, new car pricing information, and financial loan options. Once you’ve finalized the paperwork for a new vehicle online, some dealerships also give you the option of scheduling a home delivery to reduce in-person contact during the purchase process.
What new features will the E-Shop have?
FCA will continually add new features to the online store to make buying a car online more convenient. More recently, the automaker introduced online chat, through which you can receive answers to your questions in real time. By November, you will also be able to make a refundable reservation on different vehicles, using your PayPal account.
By December, E-Shop will offer the possibility to schedule a test drive online. This means that you will have the opportunity to try out a new car without wasting time in the showroom. Participating dealers will also be able to add pre-owned and certified vehicles to the online store, giving you more models to view online.
