From this perspective, this paper qualitatively evaluates the modifications in the automakers BM's standards based on strategies and innovations of the new businesses of the main groups of automotive manufacturers. As a result, the authors observed that traditional products-based automakers are already moving towards to fit in the new BM, which are impacted by the sharing economy.
