FISITA Plus conference report

Autonomous pod and McLaren sports car at FISITA Plus

It’s always tricky to condense an entire one-day conference into 1,300 words, but I did my best reporting from the inaugural FISITA Plus conference in London for Green Car Guide.

FISITA is an international network of over 200,000 automotive engineers and it had assembled a diverse set of speakers addressing a wide range of topics around future mobility.
