With many auto showrooms still closed due to the pandemic, dealerships are relying on digital means to reach new car buyers. Many car dealers are conducting sales remotely, offering 360 degree videos and virtual test drives as the next best thing to getting behind the wheel at the dealership. Car makers must rely on digital advertising more than ever to reach new buyers, and YouTube is the perfect platform to do just that.
