Automakers go back to the future

The need for action is urgent: in 2016 the average speed of a car in London hit a new low of under 8 mph—less than the speed of a horse-drawn carriage in the same streets in the Victorian era

Seizing the opportunities of the disruptive triangle

In the U.S., the average driver spends around an hour in the car per day with hands on the wheel, eyes on the road. The connected car revolution—linked with the rise of autonomous drive—will enable drivers to use this time more productively.

Changing the relationship between humans and technology

Technology will be more and more human-like, hence making it easier for people to use. Therefore, people will embrace it immediately.

The future of urban mobility

As he prepares for the biggest revolution in the 125-year history of the car industry, SEAT president Luca de Meo has no doubt about the best place to be: in the driving seat.

What’s driving the connected car?
