How mobility will impact Japan and the World

Roger Lanctot, Director, Automotive Connected Mobility, Strategy Analytics

Consumers are rethinking car ownership. Car makers are rethinking car manufacturing. In a world increasingly dominated by mobility services has the car factory become more of a liability than an asset? The demands of software, services and cybersecurity are shifting the center of gravity from making cars to managing cars and monetizing vehicle data. Can today’s car makers make, manage and monetize? Do they want to? How is the tug of war between dealers, rental car companies, transportation network companies and car makers going to play out?
