Successful sales is a deliberate, thoughtful activity. You need a process that you initiate over and over again. Whenever I talk with small business owners or salespeople who aren’t realizing the results they desire, the cause is usually the same: They don’t have a sales strategy.

Prompted by global initiatives, such as the Paris Agreement, several countries around the globe are enacting stricter emissions controls on new vehicle models. As such, automakers are beginning to expand their business into the electric mobility sector.

Recent news of Amazon’s plans to build a second headquarters has gained mass attention for a variety of reasons. In one respect, it could bring as many as 50,000 jobs to the chosen state. But for smaller retailers worldwide, it’s signaling the growing strength of an already formidable competitor. In fact, Forrester says that 83% of U.S. adults purchased from Amazon in 2016, and an estimated one-third of online retail spending is made through the primarily online player.
However, China’s car sales growth has become dependent on tax discounts in recent years as pent-up demand diminishes. In 2016, passenger vehicle sales rose by 15.9% to 23.9m units, according to the China Passenger Car Association, with small vehicle sales rising by 21% and accounting for 70% of all passenger vehicle sales in the country. This growth revival was largely due to a 50% sales tax discount on small vehicles (those with engines up to 1.6 litres), with the relevant motor-vehicle purchase tax reduced from 10% to 5% until December 2016. In January 2017 this scheme was partially extended until December that same year. Despite this, we expect sales growth to slow to 4.5%, the slowest rate since sales declined in 1994. An even more sluggish rate, of 2.6%, will be recorded in 2018.
