Welcome to Future Mobility January 30 2018

Nyhet: 2017-12-19

In the mobility sector, three trends are here to stay: electrification, autonomous vehicles (self-driving) and shared mobility. Are the science fiction dreams of the 20th century about to become reality?

Rather than a gradual change, these trends represent a paradigm shift in mobility and transport systems. The way we use vehicles, purchase and organize our mobility, and build our cities may change dramatically. When will electric and autonomous cars be mainstream, and diesel and gasoline perhaps something of the past? What new business models will emerge if access not ownership is what matters in the new economy?


Maria Schnurr, researcher in sustainable mobility and urban development at RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden. She will highlight important trends in the mobility sector and address potential sustainability implications in the sector. Has previous experience from the automotive industry and with strategic foresight consulting on mobility in Germany.

Francis Sprei, researcher at Chalmers University of Technology. She will address personal mobility options such as electric vehicles as well as car sharing practices now and in the future, as well as economic, political and technical behavior related to personal mobility.

Stuart Templar, Director of Sustainability at Volvo Cars. In 2019 Volvo Cars will introduce their first fully electric vehicle to the market and are planning one of the world’s biggest public test of autonomous vehicles in Gothenburg. Volvo aims to be in the forefront of the revolution within the car industry towards electric, connected and self-driving cars.

Albin Wilson, Art Director at Uniti, a new Swedish automotive brand that just launched their electric urban twoseater. Uniti aims to deliver cars to customer by the end of 2018 through Mediamarkt. Uniti describe their product as a high performance electric car designed for agility and safety in an urban environment with focus on sustainability and a modern user experience – the car has no steering wheel for example.
