Will you own, lease by the hour, day, season or year, share, borrow, or be "cargo" in a vehicle that moves you from point A to point B? As the automotive industry literally shifts gears and accelerates, concepts like ICE, BEV and AV are grabbing headlines and the steering wheel as mainstream options for your future transportation comfort, speed and safety. Whether you're driving or simply along for the ride, will you want or need technology-enabled, driver-assisted, touchless/online, or virtual experiences? Remember how semiconductors changed the speed and capabilities in the computer industry? Let’s see what's changing the automotive industry. We'll ask five car futurists – Tom Madonna at SAP, Julie Fream at OESA, Otto Schell at IGDCR, Clint Crook at Accenture, and Marco Gollarza at SAP – to predict our automotive journey, including the economic and environmental impacts of this evolution.
