Changing emission standards, environmental and public concerns, increased road accidents and new technology are driving the biggest change automotive has ever seen. Delivering the sustainable, consumer loved, and actively safe vehicle takes time and money, but you only have so long before another Tesla wins market share. OEMs must make technological leaps in both electric vehicles and more-efficient internal combustion engines, whilst advancing autonomous tech to achieve zero road fatalities.
This section tackles what the car of the future will look like and the infrastructure required to support it.
Scale, Commercialize and Build the Infrastructure for Electrification
According to McKinsey 120 million EVs could be on the roads by 2030, if consumers purchase at expected rates it will be a lack of charging infrastructure that will become the obstacle to EV adoption. But who’s responsibility is it to build charging infrastructures? With government pressures, will they step in to provide incentives? Who should OEMs be working with and should the industry come together to achieve an electric infrastructure at scale?
The Electrification Overview: How Far and How Fast Can We Go with Electrification
Electric vehicles have been the future since the early 1900s – but petroleum has won because it is cheap, easily transportable and delivers more energy per pound of weight and per dollar of cost than EV batteries, by far. In this session, we will delve into four key hurdles that must be overcome
What will make the next ten years different?

The future of mobility will be increasingly easier, flexible and personalized for users whilst the car of the future will be used, shared and on demand. Younger, tech savvy generations are playing a key role in driving transformation across the industry and as a result OEMs are creating new disruptive business models to ensure they don’t get caught out in a potentially declining sales market.
In this section, we will debate new business models, the future of car ownership and the infrastructure needed to make this happen
Timing is Everything: Car Ownership vs Mobility
The average car spends 90% of its life parked (RAC Foundation), with vehicle owner costs soaring, does it make sense to own a vehicle that is not used? How fast should OEMs be adapting current business models to consumer lifestyles? As analysts forecast a movement towards mobility as critical, yet car sales don’t show many signs of dying down, how can you navigate changing consumer lifestyles whilst maintaining current business model growth?

The Future of Mobility is Data, Not Cars
Data and the ability to manage and share data will be what differentiates OEMs in the future of mobility. Managing data from every journey will provide priceless insight and power. This capability will be the OEM's most significant challenge to overcome. In this session we will delve into the steps needed to create a data driven business:
Working with Dealerships to Enable Mobility
This challenge must not be overcome alone, and it is the OEMs role to empower and enable dealerships with the ability to create new services, rental services and embrace shared mobility and tackle the technology challenge together. Embrace dealer networks as your secret weapon in dominating in the mobility era.
