The Auto Industry Won’t Create The Future

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Great article by David Pakman, in which he explains why auto companies will not bring us the future. David argues that in the collision between consumer technology, cloud computing and cars, the legacy auto companies are lacking key ingredients for the future of the automobile. The article points out that despite the car companies’ best efforts and even moving innovation centers into Silicon Valley, six key ingredients will ultimately lead to their downfall.

1.) Innovation

2.) Electrification

3.) Software

4.) Data

5.) Direct Consumer Relationships 

6.) Executive Dismissiveness
