    From one-hundred twenty years ago — this is the very first automobile built in Michigan. Fifteen years later, Detroit was the automotive capital of the world. This wasn't evolution — it was revolution. It was disruptive technology that changed virtually every aspect of American life.

    Disruption! New York City went from horses to horseless in less than fifteen years. Disruption in automobility is again on the agenda. Will we be safer with driverless cars as first envisioned sixty years ago? Will we love cars with less weight and less room that use far less energy? How will companies collaborate to realize the power of less? These are some of the questions to contemplate as we face dramatic changes in The Future of Automobility.
