In response to appeals to adapt to environmental issues such as reducing CO2 emissions and less air pollution, the automobile industry is in the midst of the most drastic change to have occurred within the industry in the past 100 years. The industry is also required to respond to new technologies called “CASE”, which is an acronym for Connect, Autonomous, Share, and Electric.
