John McElroy is the host of the television program Autoline, which covers all aspects of the automotive industry. 
His subject was autonomous vehicles & mobility and he highlighted that 87% of the public fears self-driving cars.  GM & Google’s work in the field are ahead of others and new electric vehicles will be designed for 1 million miles service life (traditional cars --100-150k miles).  New mobility options are open to all customer segments which mean more miles traveled and more cars needed.  By 2040, GM & Ford anticipate lower demands for traditional vehicles so the industry needs to get the public onboard with electric vehicles and the ‘start-up’ culture.
