The 2020 edition of Automotive World’s future-looking report on transportation and mobility presents new perspectives on how people and goods will move around in the future.
What is the future of mobility? It’s a vast, open question designed to encourage debate about the next generation of transportation.
One thing is certain: nothing is certain. It looks ever more likely that incumbent automakers and established Tier 1 and other automotive suppliers will be competing with tech giants and fast-growing start-ups and unicorns to deliver solutions that people want, and that satisfy national and regional regulators.
This report looks at developments in connectivity, electrification, automation, trucking, last-mile delivery and the fascinating world of vertical take-off and landing, or VTOL.
