Car Dealer Podcast: Green shoots, plug-in car grant changes and online car sales with Neil McCue

Time 3 months ago

This week has been rammed with news and – as we realised on the Car Dealer Podcast – a lot of it has been positive.

For this episode we’re joined by chief operating officer for Snows Group Neil McCue who discusses the biggest stories of the week, including changes to the plug-in car grant, preparing to reopen and the switch to online sales.

Snows Group, which has franchised dealerships across the south coast, has had a big push to transform the business during the last year.

As McCue explains, they’ve made some changes that have made the business stronger but it has been a challenging time.

On the Car Dealer Podcast, each week editor-in-chief James Baggott and contributing editor Rebecca Chaplin choose what they think are the biggest stories of the week and compete to choose the best.

McCue plays the important role of guest judge this week and decides who should win.
