STARTING UP THE ENGINE 3.0
Throughout the value chain, new entrants and disruptive business models are reshaping the automotive industry.
Some major groundswells are about to flood the automotive industry’s engine: despite Dieselgate, Volkswagen became the world’s largest carmaker in 2016; environmental concerns and new means of transportation are progressively pushing traditional fuel cars out of city centres and paving the way for new vehicles, new engines and new types of drivers, including non-human ones.
Traditionally, the car industry requires massive investment but changing times have made the returns uncertain if not inexistent… Carlos Tavares recently said “diesel won the technological battle but lost the political one”—difficult to accept when 60% of PSA cars sold last year were diesel.
New entrants and disruptive business models (car sharing and new mobility, autonomous cars, hydrogen engines, etc.) are reshaping what was one of the most stable industries with huge impacts on other industries too: energy production, insurance (who would be liable in an autonomous car accident?), recycling, etc.
Accuracy experts help you collect, validate, analyse all sorts of data (from operational to financial, both internal and open source) in order to make documented, supported decisions in a challenging environment. This may encompass understanding a new business model, quantifying market potential, modelling different development scenarios, assessing financial impacts, assisting you in reshaping your company (whether it be a carmaker or a supplier) to invest in new technologies or accompanying you in turnaround situations.
