FT Future of the Car Summit 2017

Nissan Seamless Autonomous Mobility control centre

I attended the FT Future of the Car Summit in May and wrote several pieces as a result, including two full roundups of the day’s proceedings for different audiences.

For Car Design News I wrote a report for professional car designers [subscription required], while for Green Car Guide I wrote an account of the day’s presentations for its audience of consumers interested in fuel economy, hybrids and electric cars.

It was a fascinating event to attend, with presentations from key executives at Bentley, Daimler, Ford, McLaren, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault and Volkswagen, among others.
