Clean disruption – why the economics of self driving EVs will replace the internal combustion engine private car

Why we recommend watching

In this early 2020 video taken from a speech in North Carolina Tony Seba, an expert and author on clean disruption explains what is necessary for disruption and why self driving electric cars are about to do to carmakers and the oil industry what Apple did to Nokia or Spotify did to CD sales. While the change will be driven by economics the benefits include more money, more land available in cities and a massive reduction in carbon emissions.

Caveat– The timings may look optimistic but as a UK Tesla Model 3 owner it seems inevitable self driving cars will be on out roads soon. The key thing is understanding that Tech transition (when it happens) operates on an exponential S curve. Watch the video to see why that makes change happen much quicker than people expect.
