The car industry has lobbied the Australian Government and has been granted approval to keep showrooms open. This means now more than ever dealerships are adapting to the changes brought on by COVID-19. And manufacturers have begun to offer a contactless experience.

These manufacturers are advertising a contactless experience with general inquiries over the phone or through email rather than in person. They will even deliver cars to homes for test drives and taking all the necessary steps to clean and sanitise the car for your safety. This is a process that ProNovate is familiar with. We have been helping our clients to get the best price and experience for over 10 years, without leaving the comfort of their home.

For people concerned about picking up their new car, ProNovate [...]

New Year Run Out Sales

New Year, New Car. With 2020 well and truly underway, I am sure you have seen or heard car manufactures spruiking their end of year run out sales. If you have been waiting for the right time to purchase a new car, now might be the time for you.

What are Run Out Sales?

Car dealerships are looking to clear all of their 2019 plated models to make way for 2020 build cars. The 2019 build cars are the exact same car but as little as one month older, with bonus discounts from the Manufacturers to help Dealers make room for 2020 build cars. Think of it like buying a snow jacket in summer, you can usually find them at bargain prices at the end of [...]

One of Australia's largest tyre, automotive service and repair retailers, Kmart Tyre & Auto Service has announced its nationwide rebrand to mycar!

On the surface, a Novated Lease can seem like a perk that is just too good to be true, which is why there seems to be a lot of questions and especially a lot of myths surrounding Novated Leasing. We here at ProNovate have traveled down the rabbit hole, forum after forum, reading people’s bad experiences at the hands of companies that don’t care. Some have been misinformed or aren’t aware of changes that have occurred in the industry. There are a lot of myths that surround this fantastic benefit which is [...]

With the 2018/2019 EOFY coming to an end, I am sure you have inevitably seen on TV or heard on the radio about your local car dealers EOFY sales telling you to “act quick or miss out on a once a year sale” … 

EOFY sales are usually a push to clear out as much stock as possible, to increase sales figures for dealerships before their EOFY reporting. In doing so you might think you can get yourself a fantastic deal if you wait until June.

What people tend to lose sight of is that if you are purchasing a new car through ProNovate, you get access to large corporate [...]

When hailstorms hit, imagine the carnage they cause at any dealerships that are unlucky enough to be in their path!

With hailstorms hitting Sydney and Melbourne in December last year, there have been a large number of cars showing up at dealerships for prices that seem too good to be true … until you see all the hail damage.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-20/sydney-storms-bring-huge-hailstones/10640322

When cars are hail damaged, the dealerships will usually make a mass claim on all the cars and be paid out for at least their cost price. Then the insurance company is looking to recover as much as possible from the claims, so they look to move as many cars as possible via the most efficient method available when we’re talking such large volumes … auction.

This it the car that can make or break the Genesis brand. What about the previously released G90 and G80? These relied heavily on the Hyundai Genesis brand, this is the first car to go to market as only Genesis.

Hyundai, poached some heavy hitters to create the flagship model that is going to propel the Genesis brand without the Hyundai branding to prop it up.

He is known for his work on BMW’s iconic M Division, you can see touches of BMW all over the Genesis G90. You may even see hints of Bentley, Audi and/or Lamborghini from designer Luc Donkerwolke. You’ll also see much of it’s Kia Stinger sibling, including the same engine, and built [...]

No, that’s not a badly photoshopped image, that’s a Tesla Roadster in Space!

If you have missed the news, Earth’s resident crazy scientist / real-life Tony Stark, and his company SpaceX, conducted their first launch of the world’s most powerful rocket. This rocket didn’t just launch into space, it delivered a Tesla Roadster, with an astronaut dummy passenger, on a one-way trip into space. You may know Elon Musk as the CEO/Founder of a list of world changing innovative companies: PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity, Hyperloop, OpenAI, and Neuralink.
