The Future of Mobility

How transportation technology and social trends are creating a new business ecosystem

Will technological advances and shifts in social attitudes lead to our no longer owning or driving vehicles?

There is a critically important dialogue going on across the extended global automotive industry about the future evolution of transportation and mobility. This debate is driven by the convergence of a series of industry-changing forces and mega-trends.

Converging forces transforming the future evolution of automotive transportation and mobility

  1. Maturing powertrain technologies
  2. Lightweight materials
  3. Rapid advances in connected vehicles
  4. Shifts in mobility preferences
  5. Emergence of autonomous vehicles

At Deloitte, we’ve been engaged in a deep and broadly ranging study of the extended auto industry, the economics of alternative future states, and the potential impact of each on related industries. We have concluded that change will happen systematically—a rising tide, not a tsunami. Rather, the new personal mobility ecosystem will likely emerge unevenly across geographic, demographic, and other dimensions, and evolve in phases over time.
