The transport sector is at a tipping point. As the recently published IPCC report on climate change mitigation shows, greenhouse gas emissions from transport need to drop drastically to keep on track with the climate goals agreed in Paris 2015. And indeed, innovations in battery-electric vehicles have started to tip the balance. Recently, the market share of electric vehicles has increased steeply in many European countries, by far exceeding most experts’ forecasts.
What does this transformation mean for the auto industry? How to involve employees in the transition, ensuring that no one is left behind? What does the auto industry expect from policymakers at the national and international levels? And how can the business leaders of tomorrow shape the future of the car?
