Car ownership and driving habits as we know them may soon be completely reinvented.
A growing number of mobility services are proving to be more convenient and more affordable than car ownership, while also addressing inefficiencies in the current transportation ecosystem such as first- and last-mile transport.
Coupled with developments in autonomous driving and electric vehicles, these advancements in mobility technology have the potential to reshape the future of transportation, which will likely depend on a network of integrated services rather than privatized ownership.
In this briefing, we dive into how Big Auto, Big Tech, and startups are battling to own this future, covering the following:
- What’s driving record levels of investment in bike- and scooter-sharing startups, including Uber and Lyft’s recent moves to acquire startups in the bike-sharing space.
- How advances in battery technology are generating a resurgence in investment in electric vehicles, including bikes and scooters.
- Where the $3.4B invested in self-driving technology went in 2017, and how major AV players such as Waymo and GM will influence the ride-hailing business moving forward.
- How OEMs such as Daimler and BMW are changing the face of auto retail with car subscriptions and car-sharing services.
