The mobility revolution: making mobility move again

In this special episode of our Think Tank podcast, we talk about how mobility as we know appears to be just at the beginning of a period of profound change. Our moderator and former BBC World News presenter, Nisha Pillai, talks to Norbert Rücker, Head of Economics & Next Generation Research at Julius Baer, and a special guest, Avinash Rugoobur, President of Arrival, one of Europe’s most valuable unicorns that is using a new method to design, engineer and manufacture commercial electric vehicles from scratch.

The more than one billion cars on the roads worldwide are clogging our streets and cities, giving rise to endless traffic jams and a chronic lack of parking – daily headaches experienced by many that cost the global economy billions every year. Even more pressing, however, is the damage that these vehicles are unleashing on our health and the environment. Mobility must therefore change – and quickly.

What is the future of mobility? When will we able to see autonomous electric and self-driving cars? Our Think Tank Podcast explains.

    Here comes the revolution

    Flying taxis and fleets of driverless vehicles may not be a common sight just yet. But mobility as we know it is currently at a crossroads that is set to dramatically change how we get from A to B in the not too distant future.

    Today’s car is on its way out. Petroleum fuels are yielding to electricity.  “We believe that this decade will see a swift electrification of transport”, says Norbert Rücker, Head of Economics & Next Generation Research at Julius Baer, during this conversation.

    Shaping the electrified drive

    It is impossible to predict exactly where the changes we are witnessing in mobility will take us, but it is safe to say that technology is set to make mobility cleaner, safer, and more accessible for everyone.

    Along the way, Arrival hopes to solve two of the great problems of car-making in the 21st century: how do we dismantle the massive assembly lines that define today’s automotive industry, along with the environmental and social issues they bring? “We know that we need to have all vehicles moved to zero emission all around the world. It is not about one or two societies, but essentially everywhere”, says Avinash Rugoobur, President of Arrival.
