An integrated perspective on the future of mobility

In their study An integrated perspective on the future of mobility (Oct 2016) McKinsey & Company and Bloomberg New Energy Finance point out that “the mobility systems of the future are likely to be very different from what exists in most of the world today”. They identified three core mobility trends: vehicle electrification, shared mobility and autonomous driving.

According to the authors over the past five years the global electric vehicle sales have risen significantly due to “purchase subsidies, falling battery costs, fuel economy regulations, growing commitments from car companies, and rising interest from consumers”. In 2015 global sales grew by 60 percent to nearly 450,000 from 50,000 in 2011.
