Mobility expert Lukas Neckermann talks dealer vs agency, AI and used EVs. Welcome to episode 11 of the Autocar Business Change Makers Podcast, produced in partnership with car subscription software platform Tomorrow’s Journey.

Hosted by Chris Kirby, CEO of Tomorrow’s Journey, and Felix Page, news editor at Autocar Business, each episode will explore how some of the UK’s most agile and disruptive companies are dramatically reshaping the automotive landscape, with unprecedented access to the executives and thought leaders driving that change.

In this episode, we sit down with mobility expert Lukas Neckermann to discuss the relationship between startups and OEMs in the mobility space, how technology like over-the- air software updates is changing the face of car ownership, and the role of dealerships in 2024.

We also ask:
