Introduction

Suzhou Singapore International School IB Business and Management HL Case: Eurocars Name: Luke Ness Class: 11E Date: September 2008 Summary Due to the increase in imported car sales, Gina Wilson started Eurocars.

The producers of the cars also affect Eurocars. They are often late in producing a UK-speciification car, and the producers' promotions are forced onto Eurocars.
