Technologies have the power to reshape the auto industry, change the way we experience mobility and, ultimately, transform our life and our society. In guiding this transformation, we need to make sure that we don’t develop tech for tech’s sake but rather a tech made for real people, designed around their needs, delightful and easy to enjoy, whose impact is also fair, respectful of the environment and sustainable.
