New mobility services no threat to car dealerships, says NADA

As the automotive industry takes steps towards autonomous cars and new mobility solutions, questions are being asked about the role of car dealerships. Celeste Dooley speaks to Jonathan Collegio of the US National Automobile Dealers Association
