May 2017 management briefing – autonomous car market opportunities

Three megatrends impacting the automotive industry - fuel efficiency, individualisation and autonomous driving - will shape and form tomorrow’s car. Autonomous cars will open up new opportunities, including self-driving car shares and ‘free’ time behind the wheel.

While time spent sitting in traffic can feel tedious, it could fly by in a robo-car as you focus on other things, productive or otherwise. Continuing just-auto/QUBE’s series of research snapshots, this one takes a sideways look at the autonomous car.


Making good connections in the self-driving car

We live in an increasingly connected society and the way things are heading, we will not be escaping ‘always-on’ personal connectivity when we get into our cars. Continuing just-auto/QUBE’s series of research snapshots of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), this one considers some recent advances in the fast-changing world of car connectivity.


Self-driving cars - are we nearly there yet?

Predictions as to when we can buy a driverless car vary depending on who we talk to. Even if the more optimistic predictions come true, initial volumes will be small. Continuing just-auto/QUBE’s series of research snapshots, this one considers what we can expect, by when and how much extra it might cost.

This week alone saw GM expand its Maven car sharing platform to accelerate the ‘gig’ (freelance) economy. Continuing QUBE/just-auto’s series of research snapshots, this one takes another look at this blossoming market. Car sharing schemes allow us to rent cars for a short period on an ad hoc basis.
