As Commuter Focus Shifts from Value-for-Money to Value-for-Time Services, OEMs Look for Alternative Mobility Solutions


With autonomous vehicles soon to be a reality, it is necessary for OEMs, mobility providers, and anyone associated within the mobility value chain to look at different business models in order to be relevant to future times and be a profitable business. The study looks at the impact of autonomous vehicles on different segments within the automotive industry, such as the taxi eHailing business, public transport, and shared mobility.

The study delves into the future and analyzes the impact of key stakeholders within the realms of future mobility solutions. The study then goes on to identify possible new business models for the said segments within the ever-changing automotive industry.

Key Findings

- Seamless multimodal transportation to be the new norm: Future mobility business models are set to move away from traditional single mode to a multimodal transportation solution and this would be able to meet all the mobility needs of the consumers, including first- and last-mile connectivity at a much lower price.

- Spatial distribution management of demand: Managing spatial distribution of vehicles in the ecosystem during demand fluctuation is going to be a challenge. The aggregator who keeps the supply and demand of vehicles in optimal balance across the ecosystem is likely to become the most profitable player.

- Fall in fares to bring in cut-throat competition: The automated taxi segment is likely to dominate the shared mobility space due to fall in taxi fares, decline in vehicle ownership, and increasing mobility demand. Huge revenue potential and low entry barriers in the taxi segment are expected to bring in new market entrants, thereby oversaturating the already saturated taxi segment.

- Proprietary solutions no longer: In an ecosystem where consumers can demand seamless integration and a preference to a specific set of hardware and software, pure-play proprietary solutions will no longer play a part in the mobility space of future. OEMs and aggregators will have to customize their offerings to customer’s demands.

- Intelligent demand-driven pricing: Future consumers stand to benefit from negative pricing, as it will help taxi aggregators to move vehicles from a low-demand location to a high-demand location.
