Influences on Tomorrow's Powertrain Mix


Drivers for mobility change answered 

The most detailed compendium on the future of cities and mobility solutions, the study delves into global population growth, urbanisation, air quality and decarbonisation, whilst evaluating the range of connected mobility options that may or may not involve personal transportation. Volume 1 depicts alternative solutions impacting future sales of passenger cars. Volumes 2, 3 and 4 provide a deep-dive due diligence study on battery technology, combustion engines, electric cars and fuel cells, whilst also reviewing the response to change by affected stakeholders. 



Questions answered in volume 1

Enforcing Air Quality Targets, Decarbonisation and Easing Congestion in Urban Zones

How are cities and governments dealing with congestion? What are the urbanisation trends around the globe? What are the limits to personal car ownership in different regions and cities?

How can a balance be reached between clean air and people’s need for mobility? How committed are governments to tackling air quality and what can we expect in future? What fraction of pollution comes from cars? Are cars a scapegoat? How do the medium-term targets for CO2 emissions vary by country? What are the emissions timelines by country and are they being enforced?

Mobility on Demand: The Rise of Disruptive Technologies and Services

How do changes in population (age, density etc.) and income affect the future of mobility? Does increasing urbanisation imply restrictions to car use and necessitate mass transit solutions? Is the drive towards zero emission vehicles a realistic possibility?

Are autonomous driving cars a logical answer to crowded roads? Will the development and growth of car sharing and autonomous vehicles become closely linked in the future? How close are we to high-level autonomous vehicle availability, and what are the barriers to acceptance and adoption? What are the legal hurdles to the use of autonomous vehicles on public roads?

In what ways does current infrastructure need to evolve to accommodate future mobility solutions? What are the costs and environmental benefits associated with alternative mobility offerings?

Car Ownership: Risks and Opportunities in Tomorrow’s Smart Cities

How can governments affect consumer preferences and what are the risks to car ownership in the future? Are there gaps for growth in car ownership and, if so, where and why? 

What are the scenarios and probabilities that will drive change? How will people and goods be moved around cities in the future? Where do mass transit systems fit in? What does the increasing political influence of cities mean for tomorrow’s transport solutions?
