Is transportation ready for the disruptive leap that is arising from electric vehicles, charging/electrical infrastructure, ride sharing, self-driving cars, and big data? 

The authors - George Crabtree, Elizabeth Kocs and Bryan Tillman - discuss how transportation will be transformed in the next two decades, in large part due to improved technology, both incrementally and disruptively, and at the same time, how cars and the business models that support them will evolve to meet the demands of future users. 

This work was partly supported as part of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR).
