The automotive industry is experiencing the biggest upheaval in its history. Pascal Brier, Altran Group Executive Vice-President, sheds light on the four major trends for the car of the future: electric, autonomous, connected, and with a completely new architecture.
In the opinion of Pascal Brier, Altran Group Executive Vice-President and responsible for innovation, it is disruptive technology. The car of the future is well and truly on its way! Here are its main features.
To conclude, the car of the future, built according to a new model, will be electric, autonomous and connected. It will bring a number of benefits to society: less pollution, more safety, more free time and services. And at the end of it all A paradigm revolution: cars will perhaps offer less pleasure driving on the open road but will offer real transport, safety and connectivity services.
Visions of flying cars driving through futuristic cities may seem like the backdrop to every sci-fi film, but the future is a lot closer than you think. In fact, the future of cars is already a work in progress. While you may not see hovering vehicles on the streets anytime soon, you will see other impressive feats of mobility technology. From autonomous-driving cars to hydrogen fuel-cells to fully electric engines, we're already seeing a shift in the auto industry. Here's what we're noticing.

The Biden Administration is taking decisive action to ensure that federal investments go to infrastructure built in the United States. For example, the Department of Transportation issued a proposal in August that would, if finalized, require federally-funded EV chargers to be built in the United States starting in January 2023 and have more than 55% domestic content by January 2024. Unlike in the past, Build America, Buy America waivers will not foreclose American manufacturing, but send clear market signals, creating an incentive for firms to invest in America and create good jobs in our communities.
Cars are changing all the time. Every year new technology comes out that rapidly advances our everyday vehicles of choice, adding new technology, improving the existing functions or completely radicalising the design. But what can we expect from the future cars Will they rapidly improve or have we perfected the design We've picked out the most exciting technology, concepts and upcoming models for the future of cars.
The interior features lots of elaborate designs, bright colours and overall, the kind of stylising that feels futuristic. Obviously, like a lot of other concept cars, most of this technology doesn't exist yet. Instead, DS is looking to highlight where cars could go in the future.
The seats are detachable style hammocks which can be removed and used on camping trips and allow you to clean easier. There is also the weirder suggestion in this concept of drones that follow the car and light up the route ahead. It does all feel very futuristic but whether Audi's AI: Trail is a functional model for the future of cars, we're not so sure.
Another recent concept from the 2022 CES event, Cadillac's InterSpace design looks just like a car pulled straight from a sci-fi film set in the distant future. Cadillac claims that the point of the InnerSpace concept is to reimagine the experience of a drive, allowing two passengers to focus on their journey and not arduous driving.
Through the investments in the Build Back Better Agenda and Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, we can strengthen U.S. leadership in electric vehicles and batteries. These once-in-a-generation investments will position America to win the future of transportation and manufacturing and create good-paying, union jobs, dramatically expand American manufacturing, make electric vehicles more affordable for families, and export our electric vehicles around the world.And, the President has already made a down payment on his vision for U.S. leadership in auto manufacturing. Last month, the Department of Commerce announced $3 billion in currently available American Rescue Plan funds that can be used to advance the domestic electric vehicle industry in communities that have historically been the backbone of our auto industry.Electric Vehicles Ambition for 2030Over the last decade, we have seen a transformation in the technology costs, performance, and availability of electric vehicles. Since 2010:
Our team is excited to continue providing opportunities for the Tuck community to learn about and engage with the automotive and mobility industry. As we think about next year and welcoming a new class of Tuckies, we look forward to putting on more great events and providing opportunities to help build the next generation of leaders building the future of automotive mobility.
Technological innovations in automobiles have advanced rapidly in recent years, improving safety, performance and reliability. Electric drivetrains are becoming mainstream, and the advent of autonomous vehicles is only a few years away.
The MITSUBISHI e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT is a new-generation high-performance all-electric crossover SUV, and it allows a glimpse of MMC's future. For an enhanced driving experience, the MITSUBISHI e-EVOLUTION CONCEPT combines the very best of Mitsubishi Motors technology with the go-anywhere flexibility of SUVs. It expands MMC's SUV knowhow of EV and all-wheel drive expertise and takes it to a new level with Artificial Intelligence (AI). These elements are combined seamlessly to deliver safe and enjoyable performance that mirrors driver intent under all weather conditions, and on all surfaces.
The MiEV Evolution II was built for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a time trial event for automobiles and motorcycles held annually at Colorado Springs, Colorado. The incredible elevation change from the start line to the finish line (a climb of 4,720 feet) creates temperature, air pressure, weather and other atmospheric conditions that allows Mitsubishi Motors to gather important vehicle data in order to enhance the durability and reliability of its advanced 100 percent electric vehicles (EV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and conventional gas- or diesel-powered hybrid vehicles in the company's future vehicle development.
The Mitsubishi Concept CA-MiEV gives an indication of the direction Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (which launched the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, the world's first mass-produced electric vehicle) that the company believes electric vehicles (EVs) will be headed in the near future.
Its headlight and rear taillight designs are based on the faceted shape of cut diamonds, creating a deep and sophisticated design aesthetic. This facet-cut theme is carried over to the design of this concept car's wheels as well.

New materials and new drive train concepts pose new requirements on the manufacturing plants. The main problem here is that the future market demand cannot be predicted. As shown by research into flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) engineering, a high level of flexibility into the manufacturing system usually does not pay off in the end. If modifications are necessary after commissioning, this risks high costs or even a complete new construction. In contrast to this, agile production systems can easily and quickly be adapted to the market needs of changing lot sizes and different production technologies.
Less than a decade ago, electric vehicles (EVs) were regarded by most as an unprofitable side-show whose main function lay in helping auto manufacturers meet tightening emissions standards. Fast forward to today: EVs have crossed 10% of new car sales, the sale of combustion engines is already banned in the UK, Canada, California, and the EU by the close of the next decade, and most car companies expect to be predominantly electric by 2035. So, what forced this paradigm shift What does it mean for the future of the automotive industry And how do we ensure a sustainable and equitable transition
How do we create a product, a supply-base, and an end-of-life prospect which supports the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDGs) on climate change, sustainable cities, responsible production, quality jobs, and social, economic, and environmental equality And how do we do create this change whilst creating economic value
Types of automated technologies, such as advanced driver assistance system technologies already in use on the roads and future automated driving systems at their mature state, have the potential to reduce crashes, prevent injuries, and save lives. In some circumstances, automated technologies may be able to detect the threat of a crash and act faster than drivers. These technologies could greatly support drivers and reduce human errors and the resulting crashes, injuries, and economic tolls.
