EVs' impact on collision repair examined in June 23 CIECAST

June 20, 2022
Mitchell's Ryan Mandell will discuss topics such as the effect of EV sales on claims frequency and costs.

The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA)'s next CIECAST webinar is scheduled for Thursday, June 23 at 11 am PT/1 pm CT/ 2 pm ET: Charged for Success: Understanding EV Trends and Their Impact.” The one-hour webinar will feature Ryan Mandell, director of claims performance at Mitchell International, Inc., an Enlyte company.

During the live broadcast, Mandell will talk about electric vehicle (EV) trends and their impact on all industry stakeholders.

“Sales of EVs grew by 85 percent in 2021, while sales of light-duty vehicles increased by just three percent over the same period,” Mandell said. “As more consumers embrace EVs and automakers promise an all-electric lineup, insurers and repairers must prepare for dramatic changes to the way they manage collision claims.”

Topics will include:

  • Market factors driving EV adoption
  • Effect of EV sales on claims frequency and costs
  • Differences in EV construction and technology
  • Challenges EVs introduce to the delivery of a proper, safe repair
  • Technology enhancements needed to support the safe return of EVs to the road 

 As the director of claims performance for Mitchell International’s Auto Physical Damage business unit, Mandell works with insurance executives, collision repairers and material damage leaders to provide actionable insights and consultative direction for their organizations. Prior to joining Mitchell, Ryan was the operations director for an automotive recycler, a manager for an auto body shop, and a claims representative for a top-five carrier.

All industry segments, including CIECA members and non-members, are invited to attend the webinar. Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A session.

Attendees can earn Automotive Management Institute (AMi) credit toward an industry-recognized professional designation and specialty degree by attending this webinar.
