The automotive world has turned towards convenient individualization, starting with the online configurator. But the desire for personalization has not been satisfied yet. With 3D printing, early prototyping can be realized, and moreover the car can also be individualized to personal preferences at an entirely new level. Using apps, customers can create their own personalized car, simply by using their smartphone.

In addition, Cloud Computing, Big Data and AI enables personalization across vehicles by analysing the driver and learning from his preferences and behaviours, so that depending on the situation, mood, etc. an automatic adjustment to personal needs can take place.

Not only in terms of production and use the importance of personalization increased. Also, in terms of business models, the focus is shifting away from the traditional vehicle sales approach towards new personalized offerings. Flexible leasing or car subscriptions, where the ownership periods depend on the preferences of the customers, are examples for such models.

Personalization is one of the key factors for customer satisfaction and should therefore be considered as a core element of any product development strategy.

The number of kilometers travelled per person is rising steadily and 57% of the traffic volume in Germany is caused by cars. The resulting traffic jams, noise and air pollution are highly problematic and trigger a paradigm shift in favour of car-less mobility solutions. Especially for the First and Last Mile Micro Mobility solutions such as e-scooters, e-skateboards, hoverboards etc. are well-suited. Investors, including Uber and Google’s Alphabet Inc., are confident about these new modes of transportation and have already invested more than $900 million in scooter companies in 2018.

In many countries e-scooters are already in use, but in Germany they were still not allowed in traffic. However, things have changed, and approval is no longer a problem, as a new regulation, started in the summer of this year allows Germans to drive e-scooters with a maximum speed of up to 20 kph (12 mph) on bike paths. The scooters can have a maximum speed of 20 km/h and can only be used publicly with insurance, a driving license and a minimum age of 15 years. Also, electric skateboards and similar driving devices without handlebars should be allowed to be used with an exemption regulation. This is a major step towards a car-free city.
