To explore a shared vision for the City of the Future—including autonomous vehicles—the World Economic Forum, in collaboration with The Boston Consulting Group, has partnered with the City of Boston. BCG's advanced analytics group GAMMA has developed a citywide AV impact study on traffic in Boston and the potential impact of different policy levers. This 2018 video expands on the traffic simulation of early 2017.Watch the latest video

The convergence of three trends—vehicle electrification, autonomous driving, and shared mobility—will profoundly change the sources of profitability in the automotive industry over the next 10 to 15 years. By 2035, new mobility technology could drive 40% of industry profits, based on BCG’s ‘most likely’ scenario. The trends would shift profits from incumbents to fields in which tech challengers might have an edge.
The tipping point for electrified vehicles is in sight: a combination of hybrid and fully electric powertrains is expected to cut the global market share of pure internal combustion engines (ICEs) by nearly 50% by 2030. ICEs will continue to play a major but changing role in the industry, as most electrified vehicles over time will be hybrids, according to new research by BCG.
