The auto industry is in the midst of a dramatic transformation: from total reliance on internal combustion engines to growing acceptance of electric and hybrid electric vehicles; from driven to driverless cars; from vehicle ownership to vehicle sharing and pay-for-usage ride-hailing -- and everything in between.
The Program on Vehicle and Mobility Innovation (PVMI) at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with Wharton’s Mack Institute for Innovation Management, brings you the second iteration of a forecasting competition focused on the shifts -- both seismic and incremental -- that are shaping the future of the automotive industry. Like last year's challenge, the 2017-2018 Vehicle Innovations Challenge will track developments in technology, automaker strategies, the competitive landscape and the regulatory environment to educate forecasters about these new issues while involving them in a global crowd-sourced effort to anticipate the trajectory of an industry in upheaval.
