We met up with Ebi Lange, chief executive officer of AS-Motor, at the 2017 GIE+Expo and began a discussion about how the rural lifestyle market in Europe compares with North America — and what North American dealers can learn from European dealers.
We continue the discussion in this podcast, digging deeper into the topics of technology. For instance, robotic mowers, are an example of a technology that has gained a foothold in Europe, while is just being established in North America.
Lange also comments on the explosive growth for battery-powered products in Europe and what needs to happen n terms of advancements in data collection software.
