The Mobility Revolution

Zero Emissions, Zero Accidents, Zero Ownership


We stand at the cusp of a mobility revolution unlike anything we have seen since the days of Gottlieb Daimler and Henry Ford, 130 years ago. 

Three massively significant and converging automotive trends – electrification, self-driving technology and car-sharing – will together transform the way we live, work, and move about in our increasingly urban environment. 

This book coins the term ‘Mobility Revolution’ and is a summary of the ‘three zeroes’ that are already defining the future for the automobile industry: Zero Emissions, Zero Accidents and Zero Ownership. The impact will go beyond the automotive industry and its suppliers – urban infrastructure, construction, logistics – and even local cafés will need to think and operate differently. Based on countless interviews, the book is highly current and thoroughly researched, whilst also fun to read. It is an eye-opener to the new world that awaits us as the Mobility Revolution unfolds. 

The Mobility Revolution is a must-read for anyone interested in the future of the automobile industry, our cities, and the way we live.

A "fascinating tour-de-force of the mobility revolution... Neckermann's book is a dynamite to clear our mind in order to see how the future takes shape in our key industries and in our ever more nomadic ways of life."
