The 4th GACC Automotive Forum

Re-inventing the Car Industry - What Drives the Future Consumer?



While 2015 was the best year ever for U.S. auto sales. Yet, great changes lie in store for the global auto industry. Four forces are transforming the industry in unpredictable ways, posing new challenges and opportunities to carmakers while disrupting the business models they've relied on for more than a century:

1. Electrified drivetrains 2. The advance of self-driving functions 3. Cars that communicate with each other and the infrastructure that surrounds them and 4. The growth in car-sharing rather than ownership.

This expert panel will look at how automakers are facing these challenges, and what new business models could impact operations and approaches moving forward.
