Every dealer would love (NEED) to grow revenue, but at what cost? With higher interest rates these days, smart businesspeople need to analyze investments not only from a total return standpoint, but also from a use of capital ROI. The table to the right shows a comparison between an ALWAYS e-bike and new and used vehicle data derived from NADA. It shows that from a pure return on capital perspective, selling an e-bike is much better use of capital than a car.

Looking at it differently, if you were to take the $45,000 invested in a new vehicle and purchase e-bikes, you would have 16 units that would net you $5,600 in gross profit, far greater than that of a single new or used vehicle. These are uncertain times, and “smart” investments will make the difference between winning and losing. HEROIC is not just an acronym, but a statement of fact for business operators that use their capital wisely.
