Carmakers Turn to Home Shopping Platforms for Contactless Car Sales


SEOUL, Sept. 13 (Korea Bizwire)With demand for contactless consumption continue to rise along with the spread of COVID-19, carmakers are tapping into home shopping platforms to push for a new sales strategy.

Renault Samsung Motors Corp., the South Korean unit of Renault S.A., launched a home shopping program in July to sell the Renault ZOE all-electric car, garnering 300 calls.

It is a significant success considering that Renault currently sells around 100 units of the ZOE each month.

On Sunday, the company hosted a home shopping program for the Renault Master bus on GS My Shop, GS Retail’s T-commerce platform.
