EY and the Future of Mobility
EY’s latest Around the Globe report, hosted by Global Automotive & Transportation Leader Randy Miller, showcases Etos, an automatic concept vehicle developed with Swiss mobility tech company Rinspeed. Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, the car features its own drone and offers multiple modes of transport from full human control to fully automatic driving.
Rinspeed CEO Frank Rinderknecht notes the industry is merging software-driven innovations that blend with old-world design and production requirements. The result, he says, will be a blend of smartphones and mobility on four wheels.
Peter Fuss, EY’s Automotive Advisory Partner for the Germany/Switzerland/Austria region, says partnering with Rinspeed helps EY show its client in real-world terms how trends in mobility will impact every player in the automotive supply chain.
