EV Roadmap 10: Test Drive the Future
"The future is already here - it's just not evenly distributed."
- William Gibson, science fiction author.
William Gibson's words are particularly apt in describing the electric and "smart" mobility space. In some communities - ranging from California to Norway - electric vehicles represent 20-30% of new car sales. In other communities, such vehicles are virtually unheard of. Likewise, some communities are already testing multiple forms of connected, autonomous, and shared mobility - while many other parts of the world consider such technologies a form of science fiction.
The mobility industry is changing fast, and the rate of that change continues to accelerate. For example, through Electrify America, the Volkswagen Group of America will invest $2 billion over the next 10 years in Zero Emission vehicle infrastructure, awareness and other measures that will transform the electric vehicle market in the U.S.
EV Roadmap 10 invites participants to "test drive the future," learning from industry leaders as well as the leading communities and regional markets. EV Roadmap 10 programming will be organized around three tracks: Cars, Charging, and Community.
