Electric & Hybrid Vehicles - CSN 427 Auto Collision

The auto industry is continuously reinvigorating itself with new top car models, hybrid and electric vehicles, while simultaneously dealing with changes in the supply chain as the industry continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, our automotive experts at CSN 427 invite you to take a look at the biggest auto industry trends in 2021 and what to expect moving forward as a car-owner.

Top Vehicles For 2021

There's no doubt that purchasing a new car is one of the most memorable and exciting experiences imaginable. Thanks to high-tech features and technology that's coming along with many modern vehicles, this fact remains more true than ever before.

Electric and hybrid cars take centre-stage when it comes to cutting-edge features in 2021's top commercially available cars. Hybrid and electric vehicles, such as the hybrid 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime, not only increase fuel-efficiency on long drives. They also include modern technological features such as bluetooth capabilities, GPS-enabled navigation systems and state-of-the-art driver-assist safety programs that go beyond just simple dash cams.

Top Paint Trends

It's important to stay up-to-date with paint trends for cars in 2021, so that you can ensure your vehicle remains popular and attractive for many years to come. While it's true that colour trends change and certain ones become more or less popular, it's still important to pay attention to paint trends that affect your vehicle's resale value.

As of 2021, popular trends in car paint include dark, grey-like colors and muted, dark colors such as red and brown. Particularly among electric vehicles such as Tesla models, redolent red and abstract blue colors are highly popular among car owners who are looking for something sleek and contemporary-looking.

At CSN 427 Auto and CSN Avenue Collision we're pleased to sit down with our clients to explain the complexities of matching your vehicle paint to original specifications. We are continually training with vehicle manufacturers and automotive paint suppliers to ensure we have the most accurate, up-to-date information to repair your vehicle finish to factory standard.

How This Affects Repair

Trends in advanced technology and features in modern hybrid cars and electric vehicles affect car repair in a few interesting ways.
Collision repair now needs to consider digital components more than ever before,  by using diagnostic digital cameras and other innovative repair tools, certain issues in a hybrid or electric vehicle’s system can be identified. Additionally, trends in paint color require that auto body shops use a color matching camera with a built-in formula for proper paint detection, so that your car can be matched to its closest paint code more accurately and easily.
