This is a very interesting development and a unique space to play in for a used car sales coming. I think they have touched on a very simple truth, people hate dealing with sales people especially used car sales people and thanks to VR now that is no longer with Vroom. I can see this doing the same for the real estate industry and retailer also. I guess we've been walking in this direction for a while now with the likes of online virtual shopping assistants this is now becoming next level
It used to be that anyone interested in buying a used car would have to visit a dealership and chum it up with insistent salespeople. With the advent of virtual reality, however, it may not be long until people can simply strap on headsets and shop for used cars without having to leave their homes. Vroom, a used car sales startup, is trying to capitalize on the current virtual reality boom. The company said on Tuesday that it would let people browse for used cars by letting them visit showrooms in virtual reality, according to Vroom’s chief marketing officer, Gaurav Misra.
