#### The Evolution of Mobility: From Automotive to Digitalization
The automotive age, which lasted for a century, started with the rollout of the first Model T in 1908 by Henry Ford. However, significant shifts occurred in 2008 with global events, such as the financial crisis and the introduction of third-party apps on smartphones. These events marked the beginning of the age of digitalization in transportation.
#### Electrification and Diversification as Pillars for Future Mobility
Granoff emphasizes two crucial pillars that shape the future of transportation and mobility: electrification and diversification. The increasing dependence on oil, coupled with environmental concerns, led to the need for alternative energy sources. Granoff shares his involvement in promoting electric transportation and the decline in energy storage costs, making electrification an inevitable revolution.
Moreover, diversification plays a significant role in reshaping mobility. Beyond traditional ownership, new forms of mobility are emerging, such as car subscriptions and various form factors like scooters. With the advent of digital tools and electrification, these diverse forms of mobility become more accessible and convenient.
Join Michael Granoff as he delves into these topics and explores the exciting possibilities in the transportation and logistics industry.
