Trends: Where is the automotive industry headed?

In order to know the future, you need to go a little bit back in time. Where did it all start? Did you know that the first automobile was designed by François Isaac de Rivaz in the year 1808? That’s a couple of centuries back. Just imagine how much cars have changed since then; from hydrogen fuelled combustion engines to diesel and petrol engines to the modern electric powered car.  If such change has taken place over the few hundreds of years, does it mean that the automobile industry is nearing its end? On the contrary, could the 21st century witness a new era of road vehicle technology? Well, it’s really hard to say.

Fuelling

With the world going green, automobile manufacturers are making every effort to produce the most environmentally friendly cars. Take a look at what vehicles use for fuel these days. Some time back, the electric car seemed like an idea you could only fantasize about. Thanks to innovative technology, electric vehicles have become a reality. Although they haven’t been commercialized that much on a global scale, you could still purchase one and drive it on the roads of the UK. It doesn’t end there.

Nowadays, there are hybrid cars that can combine more than one source of fuel. For instance, some vehicles can combine electricity and bio-diesel. Apart from electric cars, innovations are also being made for alternative sources of fuel such as hydrogen, vegetable oil, and even water. Don’t believe it?

Smart integration

Have you noticed how everything is being smartly integrated nowadays? That includes cars too. Development of technology has seen modern vehicles being fitted with some very impressive gadgets and systems. They have more interactive systems that allow the driver to feel at one with the car. It’s funny that you can even ask your own vehicle for directions these days just by speaking to it. Additionally, it’s also possible to receive and make calls, brew coffee, refrigerate your soda, and so on.

With smart integration technology, you can now link your automobile to your very own smart phone. This has made tracking very easy and will eventually help curb car thefts in the future. Additionally, such integration will help you monitor your vehicle’s condition more closely and enable you to properly maintain it.  Besides that, you can expect to call your car and have it drive to your location all on its own in the near future thanks to such technology. Give it some time. You’ll see.

Conclusion

With respect to the above trends, the future still seems bright for the automotive industry. As long as technology increases, you can expect to see cooler cars than the ones you see today in the near future. Very soon, you might be able to board a taxi with no driver and still get to your destination. It sounds a bit unbelievable right now, doesn’t it? Well, why don’t you wait and witness it for yourself? With the ever increasing demand for innovation and inventions, there is no telling what the future holds.
