The future of mobility

Commentary
The recent partnership between Apple and Didi Chuxing underscores the changing market dynamics in today’s auto industry. Consumers have started to shift from traditional car ownership to ride sharing, while tech companies are investing heavily in autonomous driving technologies in the hopes to make the roads safer and traveling more convenient. It’s a combination of these trends that has created a market conducive for partnerships and investments. In addition to Apple’s investment in Didi, other companies have recently partnered up, either to take on Uber or to explore the possibilities of autonomous cars. General Motors invested in Lyft, who has teamed up with Didi, Ola and Grab. Google has partnered with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The Chinese rivals Alibaba and Tencent have both invested in Didi. In short, this market consists of many alliances and these partnerships will surely unlock new transportation experiences for consumers.
