Franchise distribution, direct sales or a modern hybrid solution?

Over the years, AEC has developed a unique skill set that allows us to create a tailored buying experience for various customer needs around the world. We are the agile link between the traditional and the modern automotive worlds, with expertise and a vast network of sales, service, and fulfillment centers in key global markets.

Core Competencies

Foreign automotive brands face a great deal of challenges in Europe  – AEC has mastered and refined the needed skills and built a unique infrastructure that allows us to compete effectively.

Our European set-up is one of a kind and combines in-house competence and exclusive cooperation agreements with leading providers.

Our team provides cross-disciplinary solutions that range from regulatory compliance, specialized engineering, distribution center incl. parts, R&D, pan-European customer warranty, homologation to warehouse operations, support & service training, and a pan-European service-network.

EV Market Entry

The electrification trend has never been more present than today. We see it everywhere, every day. While sales and production of Battery Electrical Vehicles (BEV) surge all over the world, due to favorable regulations and forecasts, the distribution concepts and the respective infrastructure are still largely fragmented.

AEC unites the abilities and capacities of traditional channels with the needed agility and flexibility to accommodate any volume needs of growing markets. AEC has helped several manufacturers to estimate their market entry costs and the foreseeable roadblocks for their EV prototypes, while also developing key partnerships in the areas of online distribution, service network, and financial partnerships.

Position yourself in the front of the line with AEC as your Pan-European distributor for your electrical vehicle models.

Distribution Concepts

Thanks to our multidisciplinary team of automotive professionals, we are able to combine the experience of traditional manufacturers with innovative concepts. By considering market demand, we provide flexible solutions depending on the volume, goal, and other key success factors.

Our toolbox includes various components that can be mixed and matched to address the arising needs of our customers and partners. AEC’s key priority is to understand these needs and to adapt to them in the most efficient way.

  • Traditional Distribution Channels
  • Fleet and Specialty Business
  • Innovative Mobility & Distribution Concepts
