Autonomous vehicles can significantly change our traffic flow and reduce congestion when combined with sharing and alternative mobility options.
The transport and mobility sector is currently responsible for about a third of Europe’s energy consumption and around 25% of overall greenhouse gas emissions. Now, mobility worldwide has reached an inflection point, where technology innovations such as electrification, autonomous driving and the connected car are converging with society’s collective desire to do more around sustainability and climate change. Electric vehicles (EVs) are set to help reduce emissions and to reach emission reduction targets, but the vehicles are not a solution in their own right. EV technology must work alongside other initiatives and technologies in order to help make electric mobility both feasible and affordable for the customer.
