Flexible Ownership & Innovative Mobility Models

New technologies and business models are unlocking what could be a trillion dollar market for new mobility services.  Our panel of speakers will tackle these questions and more:

  • Technology, infrastructure, or consumer acceptance – which of these is the biggest hurdle for new mobility?
  • What is the tipping point in consumer behavior we need to see for new mobility to be successful?
  • Explain how dealers fit — or don’t fit, into the world of new mobility.
  • Which pieces of the value chain are you most and least prepared to address?
  • How far away are we from widespread consumer demand for new mobility beyond the traditional lease / buy model? 1-year, 5-years, 10-years?
  • What about OEMs? What role do they play?
