Into the fast lane: Three big trends in personal transport will become increasingly entwined

Getting around once involved a choice between walking, taking public transport or else buying a car and filling it with fuel, sitting behind the wheel and slamming a foot on the throttle. But changes are coming, courtesy of carmakers and tech giants, as three trends intertwine. Electric vehicles (EVs) will supersede those powered by fossil fuels. Mobility services such as car-sharing and ride-hailing are blurring the lines between private and public transport, displacing buses and trains as well as car ownership. And autonomous vehicles promise to make driving skills redundant.
