KPMG imagines a view of the future, a world where self-driving cars are the norm. A world where connected cars work rather like lifts in a building, except horizontally, taking people from A to B efficiently.
The majority of journeys will be on an individual basis, but with more sharing than today; energy consumption and pollution will be halved, congestion will be eliminated and hundreds of thousands of lives will be saved every year.
It will create more time in our lives – some people will regain up to a quarter of their day, and plummeting travel costs will boost the global economy and engender social equality. Our cities will change forever, space will be created and energy will be shared between vehicles, workplaces and homes.
