The transportation sector is undergoing tremendous change.  Low-cost electric vehicles are on the near-term horizon, new mobility services are gaining momentum, and CAVs promise to upend traditional business models and vehicle use cases.  At the same time, literature suggests that achieving the Paris climate agreement goals requires increasing policy ambition and achieving global net carbon neutrality by midcentury.  Practical strategies and policy frameworks must be established to guide the evolution of the transportation sector.  This session will share the latest insights on emerging vehicle technologies, highlight innovative ideas and partnerships already in progress, and examine potential timelines for achieving zero emissions.
