Vehicle manufacturers' electrification strategy

​​​​​​​Last July, the European Union proposed a zero-emissions target for new cars by 2035, an effective ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2035. The European Commission also proposed a 55% cut in CO2 emissions from cars by 2030 versus 2021 levels and a 100% cut in CO2 emissions by 2035. In parallel, several countries have already announced accelerated timelines for the sale of Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) to be banned in 2030 or 2035. The continued acceleration of electrification is putting a significant pressure on OEMs to meet these targets and is spurring the development of electrification strategy for the coming years.

But what kind of decisions and investments have they already decided?

Connected and convenient: paying for charging and more

Paying directly with a car for products and services such as electricity used to charge an EV, parking spots, vignette, congestion charges and so on is being jointly tried by carmakers and payment providers to deliver a seamless process to customers. The video explores this world of new onboard payment options and brings clarity about what connected drivers of tomorrow can expect.

Charging infrastructure in Europe: room for improvement

At the beginning of 2020, when fleet manager’s interviews were conducted across Europe for the last Arval Mobility Observatory fleet Barometer, the main barrier against PHEV and BEV raised by companies that were not considering implementing these alternatives was the lack of public charging points. Moreover, 2020 saw a continuing trend across Europe of increasing electrification.

At the beginning of 2021, where do we stand regarding the public charging point’s situation?

Autonomous Vehicles: Cybersecurity, Insurance and Infrastructure

Today's vehicles provide an unprecedented flow of information. Sensors and other sophisticated equipment collect data enabling new mobility applications such as autonomous vehicles (AVs).

It’s fair to believe that AVs will improve road safety and offer unique mobility opportunities. But they are also vulnerable to cyberattacks, glitches and traffic hazards from other road users which will require innovative insurance products and mindset.

This video presents some risks as well as solutions to address those threats and highlights what the future of insurance could look like in an automated world.

CES 2021

The CES 2021

The annual Consumer Electronics Show took place mid of January as an all-digital version for the first time in its history. No need to precise that this was due to the covid 19 pandemic.
During this event, the key trends highlighted were the following: digital transformation and digital health, robotics and drones, 5 G connectivity, vehicle technology (electrification, self-driving vehicle) and smart cities.
Our focus will be on vehicle technology, transportation, the megatrend of electrification remaining but having seen an acceleration during the pandemic in 2020.

The Interface Between Humans and Machines

The idea of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) is as old as the Industrial Revolution. It describes how humans interact with tools, either through switches, voice commands or any other interactive means. The automobile has seen many iterations of HMI throughout the years. Today, AI assistants and near-holographic displays cohabitate with the traditional pedals, steering wheel and gear-lever that have been present since the first car.

Discover more about the barriers, the challenges and the promises related to these various interfaces in this publication.
