Automotive and New Mobility

The challenge

Automotive and new mobility industry continue to undergo a once-in a century transformation to intelligent and zero emission ecosystems. The implications on the sector’s operational resiliency, range from securing rare-earth materials and chips shortages, to rapidly changing regulatory environments across the globe, and electrifying at scale. While trillion-dollar opportunities can be tapped, transparency, trust, and collaboration across value chains and coordination with public sector actors are required.

The Forum’s approach

The Automotive and New Mobility Industry Community brings together leading companies from across the ecosystem to advance the safe, clean and inclusive movement of goods and people. Through multistakeholder initiatives, the portfolio provides a platform for business leaders, governments, civil society, academia to work together to understand, co-design and pilot policies and business practices to accelerate synergistic, innovative solutions for a future-ready transport system.

Three main themes are currently prioritized by Automotive and New Mobility Industry Community, steered by Governors and Senior Deputies, and several initiatives-as-a-service are addressing them:


Mobility Integration and software ecosystems

Automotive in the Software-Driven Era – Unlocking the potential of cross-industry and public-private collaboration in the software-defined mobility age to help improve safety, inclusivity, sustainability and overall system resilience.

Global New Mobility Coalition​ – Catalysing efficient, impactful, and feasible city-focused collaborations that can deliver people-centred and zero emission compact cities. Example projects: Zero Emission Area Toolkit, Zero Emissions Urban Fleets, Urban Mobility Scorecards.


Geopolitical decoupling and supply chains

Resilient Automotive Value Chains​ – Advancing supply chain transparency across critical materials and resources to decouple industry success from raw material volatility, establish globally aligned cradle-to-grave accountability compass and toolkit.

Circular Cars Initiative – Connecting stakeholders from the entire automotive ecosystem to align on and implement circularity principles with the goal of total life-cycle emissions minimization.  


Emerging Markets

Moving India – Accelerating India’s transition to zero emission mobility solutions by strengthening electric vehicle (EV) supply-side policies in key states, building a case for transition to zero emission road freight and making India a lighthouse for battery circularity.

​Moving Indonesia – Supporting Indonesia’s ambition to become a regional leader for electric two-wheeler adoption and manufacturing, electrify its urban public transport ecosystem and build local upstream value addition for global battery supply.


China Ecosystem Development​

Strategic policy recommendations with featured insights to empower green growth in line with national climate goals. Fostering public-private collaboration centred on mobility innovations and mobilize project communities.
