The future of automotive – How the car industry will change in the next 15 years

Autonomous vehicles, connectivity, electric vehicles and smart mobility (sharing) are underpinning the transformation of the automotive sector. So how will the car industry evolve in the next 15 years?

Download our paper as Dr Michael Wagstaff dons his best driving gloves, puts on his Car Anthems Volume 2 CD and looks into his crystal alloys to predict an industry that will experience its biggest evolution since the invention of the internal combustion engine.

In our recent independent survey we’ve examined the attitudes and behaviours of more than 1,000 car buyers to identify perceptions towards the purchase process and latest industry trends, including:

  • buying patterns and influences
  • the role of digital in the purchase process
  • approach to vehicle financing
  • attitudes towards autonomous cars, virtual test
    drives and
  • the changing face of the car showroom and car ownership
