INSPIRATION

Mobility to the max


No Comments

Using the diversity of the HINEKEN.org movement we defined inspiring scenarios for the mobility of the future.

Which brands do you think will be the winners in mobility? 

Paul Heise “All major brands will leap frog over each other in new developments. We’ll see a lot of m&a in the automotive industry in the coming two decades, as well as JVs with related industries, as alternatives to internal combustion engines mature (H2, EV, formic acid, PV powered engines, etc). My guess: in 2040 there are no more than 8 brands (with sub-brands) dominating the market (plus dozens of niche players of course), all targeting alternative power trains only, because the ICE has been banned in most western countries.”
