The automotive and mobility industries are nearing a watershed moment in their digital metamorphosis. Customer expectations are being transformed by AI and big data, putting mounting pressure on supply chains to become more agile. The gravitational pull of the ever-expanding availability of faster internet is forcing the auto industry to leave its product-oriented philosophy behind and replace it with software platforms that champion highly customer-oriented experiences..
The future of the industry will be defined by an era of long-lasting strategic partnerships among suppliers, manufacturers, and technology companies. Digital innovation will be a high-stakes priority to build a more agile supply chain to balance the needs of customers with the evolving regulations in the industry.

Customer: Automotive has run its course. Mobility is the name of the game in this new phase. The focus of automakers on products will shift to customers. The service offerings of automakers will focus on how to build platforms that give the best personalized experiences to their customers.
Autonomous and Sustainable Driving: Self-driving cars will replace traditional cars in a couple of years. Another changing feature of the overall driving experience will be the emphasis on reducing its environment-harming effects. Therefore, the evolution of autonomous cars will run parallel to the development of EVs.
