Mobility is currently dominated by a number of powerful trends. Urbanization and de-carbonization are calling for new concepts. While autonomous driving, electromobility, car sharing, and digital information and communication technologies have begun to fundamentally change the landscape, they have also allowed for new market entries. Competition is shifting focus from purely design and horsepower to sustainability, all-encompassing service, maximized use of drive time, digital real-time economy and deep integration within the internet of things. Cars will no longer be prestigious objects to own, but a means to organize personal mobility and intelligently deliver a wealth of digital services along the way.
