How will the disruption play out in India, Southeast Asia, Africa and other places where consumers are very price-sensitive?

 |  6 May 2024

Everywhere in the world, people want to be able to move around quickly, safely and cheaply.

We are now seeing rapid adoption of electric cars in China, including small electric vehicles (EVs) that are dramatically cheaper than what new cars used to cost.

Sales of electric two- and three-wheelers are already growing exponentially in much of the world.

Families that were previously only able to afford a used combustion engine vehicle are now buying new EVs, and those that used two-wheelers are stepping up to cars.

We see the robotaxi disruption playing out in a similar manner around the world-with fleets first being deployed in the large urban areas where companies developing autonomous electric vehicles (A-EVs) are located (like San Francisco and Shanghai) and then spreading to other areas.

Witness the transformation

The disruption of the transport sector by emerging technologies, A-EVs and TaaS, is inevitable. The disruption will be decentralized, and will drastically change the transportation structures of nations across the globe.

Choosing TaaS over independently owned vehicles will lead to a reduction in costs of up to 10 times. We know of no other market where a cost differential of up to 10 times has not led to a global disruption.
