Speeding Ahead with Automotive Innovators
The automotive industry is undergoing a rapid and market-disrupting period of growth. Pressure continues to mount from industry “outsiders” like Tesla. Customers are lured by technological advances requiring substantial investments in innovation. The technology for autonomous vehicles is being refined, but transportation infrastructure may not be ready for it. Car-share companies like Zipcar and ride-shares like Lyft and Uber are changing how people think about cars and altering purchasing patterns. Whether you’re a manufacturer, investor, trade association, or dealership, we understand the challenges you face as the industry evolves.Share
