Faster, Smarter, Greener: The Future of the Car and Urban Mobility.
The twentieth century was the century of the automobile. The twenty-first will see mobility dramatically re-envisioned. City administrators are shifting from designing cities for cars to designing cities for people. Leaders are increasingly employing targeted user fees and subsidies to nudge consumers toward more sustainable modes. The sharing economy is coaxing many consumers to shift from being owners of assets to being users of services. The auto industry is responding with connected cars that double as virtual travel assistants and by introducing autonomous driving.
Join EPIC’s Ryan Kellogg for a conversation on the future of our car culture with Venkat Sumantran, an author of the new book Faster, Smarter, Greener: The Future of the Car and Urban Mobility and former CEO of Tata Motors.
