It is with a sense of hopeful expectation that we will welcome Sebastian to the stage as he lays out DriveNow’s roadmap for a greener mobility future.

Sebastian Hofelich, CEO, DriveNow will be delivering a headline session focussing on his determination to deliver a greener, more sustainable mobility solution. He will be drawing on data from two long term studies with WiMobil and Evaluation Carsharing to demonstrate that free floating car sharing in a city can make a significant contribution to the reduction of private car ownership and therefore urban traffic problems.

A particular focus going forward will be the company’s plans to continue expanding their partnerships with public transportation systems to deliver a more holistic mobility solution with an emphasis on electromobility. DriveNow also already has more technical innovations in store for the App, website and product that are due to be introduced in the first quarter 2016.

TU-Automotive Europe 2016 Conference & Exhibition is Europe’s largest annual event dedicated to the connected car and auto mobility. 1000+ execs from across the automotive, tech, wireless and start-up communities will gather to discuss the agile business models, innovative tech and new partnerships that we enable automotive’s digital transformation.

Sustainable Mobility Solutions are the Future

TU-Automotive Europe project manager Lucas Ainscough said, “The problem of keeping an increasingly urban population mobile, within our increasingly over-burdened cities is not one that has an easy solution. Sebastian’s vision for fewer cars, more electrification and greater collaboration between cities, public transport and new mobility providers is a potential light at the end of the tunnel”.

Ainscough continued, “It is with a sense of hopeful expectation that we will welcome Sebastian to the stage as he lays out DriveNow’s roadmap for a greener mobility future. The role played by him and his peers in how we travel in the future will be considerable and hearing first-hand what is coming next is very exciting”.
