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. All these things affect Eurocars to various degrees, while government factors feature heaviest they both help and hinder Eurocars, so it balances out eventually. ...read more.
