The unique Auto Retail Network Index aggregates a host of metrics covering both the cost to run a franchise; its profitability, investment levels and how easy it is to do business with the NSC, has been updated for the 2020 report. This scoring system builds on the areas added last year which include a percentage of franchises that have changed ownership in each brand, approved used schemes by brand and a listing of which groups hold the largest proportion of each brand’s network.
