You will be able to get what model of car, color, and accessories on line, as you can already at most car manufacturers place an order for the car you want with what you want on the internet, but in this future you will be able to see yourself behind the wheel and feel the power at hand.

E-Commerce businesses will have to ensure the ease of use of their on-line store design and setup to make it appealing to customers, and will have to continuously invest in the newest technology and ideas.
