The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) has campaigned in favor of different connected and autonomous driving aid features like 5G network-connected cars, ride-hailing facilities, and driverless vehicles. This is completed using connected cars. 

COVID-19 Impact on Connected Cars Market

The recent outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has created a severe impact on the automotive sector globally. During the pandemic, the production of automotive has seen a decline. With the global lockdown, the supply of components associated with the automotive industry has got disturbed. The production of automotive has been suspended by key players like Volkswagen, Fiat, General Motors, etc. However, post-COVID, some countries have resumed their production. For example, in China, more than 92% of the automotive parts suppliers have re-started their production. In Europe, many of the automotive industries and electronic manufacturers have shut down their factories or limited their production to a lesser limit temporarily which results in a huge loss in trading. The loss is due to the pandemic period. COVID-19 has unlocked enormous opportunities for the connected cars industry because of the considerable rise in implementing technology.
