The insight behind industry innovation

Manufacturers do not want to be seen to be left behind in the race to develop an autonomous car: being first to market with a new innovation is generally perceived to confer technological leadership and a competitive advantage – with a resulting boost in sales. However, while much of the focus has been on getting the technology right, the automotive industry should not overlook other issues that have the potential to delay the release and adoption of autonomous cars: the implications for liability and the insurance industry; the regulatory framework; the impact on the sales process; and of course, consumer confidence in the technology.

This report covers the various stages of autonomous development and examines the issues in detail, including what autonomy means for residual values and total cost of ownership.

The Autonomous Car is a detailed examination of the issues surrounding developments to date, as well as a practical assessment of how autonomous cars could be rolled out and how governments may react in order to keep the transition period as short as possible. And, as you would expect from Autovista Group, the report provides a serious consideration of the implications for residual values and total cost of ownership.
