Car makers are redefining themselves as mobility providers
Welcome to the City Car Summit — the international forum where leaders from the automotive, carsharing and technology sectors come together to shape the new urban mobility ecosystem.
Urbanisation, disruptive technologies and cultural shifts are transforming the mobility landscape. Urban consumers are looking beyond personal vehicle ownership and towards a new world of mobility-as-a-service.
This is a world where carsharing and micro-mobility products integrate seamlessly with mass-transit and slick journey planning tools, thanks to the power of the smartphone.
And it is a world where access to driverless cars is just around the corner.
Automakers, tech companies and urban authorities are all working to re-imagine the place of the car in our cities to be more intelligent, connected and sustainable.
The City Car Summit is the place where solutions providers, decision makers and influencers from 20+ countries converge.
