In total, Sopadis represents 18 dealer brands. More dealerships are likely to join the group in the coming months.
Sopadis is dedicated to improving the mobility of tomorrow by offering its customers the best vehicles and services available on the market. Sopadis cares about the actual challenges the society is facing about mobility, energy and environment. Company actions are driven by the will to make the change happen in a sustainable way.
To achieve its goals, Sopadis is connecting a community of complementary dealerships in Belgium. The company promotes, supports and connects dealers and initiatives. It also encourages knowledge sharing and innovation within the network.
The automotive industry is undergoing significant technology and business model evolutions. Sopadis is considering the opportunity to add new financial solutions to its suite of services.
Offering flexible subscription models is a great alternative to automotive ownership as we know it.
The timing is right for innovative players to deploy such solutions as a new profit center for dealerships.
The subscription model allows customers to avoid the upfront capital requirements and long-term contracts associated with buying or leasing, while adding convenience and flexibility with the “all-in” monthly fee and commitment.
We are really confident in the automotive retailer’s role in this new context, and how car dealers can actually capitalize on this trend.
Testing and rolling-out new mobility offers in practice is one of our top priorities at Sopadis.
