The adoption of hybrids and electric vehicles (EVs) will be increasing significantly in the next few years. Your shop needs to be ready to service these new generations of vehicles -- while remembering that the majority of the cars you fix will still have internal combustion engines (ICE) for years to come.
Attend this free webinar to learn how EVs will affect vehicle repairs and the automotive aftermarket. Our presenters will cover trends such as:
- What percentage of vehicles on the road will be hybrids and electric vehicles in 2025, and in 2030?
- The 10 states where EV adoption is likely to be highest
- How long until battery prices decline, to make EVs more affordable than ICE vehicles? (It's sooner than you think)
Have you ever noticed many European cars and SUVs no longer have coolant replacement intervals listed in the service information? This could be due to cooling systems requiring service or component replacement prior to that interval. It could be hoses, plastic couplings or water pumps. Your shop has options. Some replacement parts can be better than the original parts. These parts can create a win/win situation for your shop and customers when dealing with today’s vehicle’s complexity and longevity.
These solutions can simplify a repair and protect against future failures. In a 45-minute webinar sponsored by CRP Automotive, the company that brings you Rein Automotive, we will cover six common cooling system repairs on BMW, Audi and VW vehicles. These repair solutions will cover more than six-million vehicles on the road today.

In this hour-long webinar, our experts will discuss how they’ve built an oil change and vehicle maintenance program that keeps customers coming back and helps maintain healthy profit margins.
