Last month, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed the California New Car Dealer Association’s 2023 Franchise Bill (AB 473), signaling a massive win for franchised new car dealers in the state.

Authored and championed by Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry (D-Winters), the bill strengthens CA’s franchise laws, creating a fairer and more balanced environment for dealers. It emphasizes accountability and transparency, benefiting all franchised dealer members. Effective January 1, 2024, bill highlights include:

🚘 Preserving Franchise Integrity: No new brands competing with established dealers

🚘 Equitable DC Fast Charging: Fair costs with no burden on dealers

🚘 Post-sale Subscription Limits: Ensures fairness in consumer choices

🚘 Transparent Reservations: Open process for dealers and consumers

🚘 Reimbursement for Digital Services: Manufacturers reimburse dealers for non-compliant services

Get more details on AB 473 at https://www.kolarandassociates.com/blog/california-new-car-dealer-associations-2023-franchise-bill (source California New Car Dealers Association).

We're always keeping an eye on the latest trends in the automotive industry, and 2023 has brought some good news for dealerships! According to a Reuters article from earlier this year, new U.S. vehicle sales surged in the first half of 2023, with an 18% year-over-year increase predicted, according to S&P Global Mobility. The 2023 sales forecast has also been upgraded to 15.4 million units.

Despite rising interest rates, strong demand and improved supply seem to be driving sales growth. However, watch out for potential affordability challenges due to inflation in this second half of the year.
