S1 EPS 5: Electric Vehicle Ecosystem: Navigating through Uncertainty

Markus Bartenschlager

By 2050, more than two-third of the global population will live, commute, and work in urban areas. As urban populations grow, so will the need for more sustainable and eco-friendly mobility. Fortunately, consumers today have shown growing preferences towards electric vehicles (EVs), according to Deloitte’s 2020 Global Automotive Consumer Study. What constitutes the shift towards this new paradigm of electromobility? In this episode, we discuss the journey towards the future of sustainable mobility.

S1 EPS 4: Future of Electromobility in Southeast Asia

Andrey Berdichevskiy and Terence Siew

The COVID-19 situation has seen a steep decrease in local air pollution as well as global greenhouse gas emissions. However, this has come as a result of lockdowns and mobility restrictions. So, how do we curb local pollution levels and emissions while still maintaining our level of mobility? Enter the concept of electric vehicles also known as EVs. EVs allow the freedom of mobility, without the associated problems of high carbon emissions typical of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. Join Andrey Berdichevskiy and Terence Siew as they discuss the state of electromobility in Southeast Asia.

S1 EPS 3: Future of Mobility: Electrification in MaaS

Helmut Rebstock and Gregory Duconge

The convergence of emerging technologies combined with changing consumer and societal preferences has resulted in the rapid adoption of Mobility-as-a-Service also known as MaaS; getting users from point A to B in a flexible, multimodal, and seamless way through a single interface. Recent collaborations have also seen the integration of eco-friendly transportation modes into MaaS. In this episode, we discuss the possibilities of electrification in MaaS.

S1 EPS 2: Approaching MaaS – Transformation in Mobility through Volatile Times

Professor Dr. Andreas Hermann, Andrey Berdichevskiy and Johann Jungwirth

Could the future of mobility lie in shared modes of transport rather than personal vehicles? If the success of Netflix is any indicator, the future of urban mobility might very well be centred on shared transportation. MaaS models are forecasted to empower a new reality for urban mobility by ensuring equity and reducing traffic congestion, helping cities all over the world achieve their social and environmental goals.
