As cars become capable of driving themselves, their occupants will have plenty of free time to go online or otherwise connect with the world around them as they travel. The question is: Who will provide those in-car services?

Peter Fuss, EY’s senior automotive advisory partner for Germany, Switzerland and Austria, says carmakers should take on both roles because new services add value and could generate huge profits. But Fuss says a major challenge will be synchronizing the pace of vehicle development and the speed with which new services are being invented.
