The latest innovations in the automotive industry include:

  1.  a blockchain based app rewarding drivers who drive in an eco-friendly manner;
  2.  vehicle to grid services;
  3.  autonomous shared vehicles for the cities of the future; and
  4.  air-cleaning tyres.

And these are only few of the initiatives that taking the industry by storm.

Our favourite – Goodyear's moss powered air cleaning tyres. The tyres are using the moss that is naturally developed within a wheel's sidewall causing photosynthesis to occur and releasing oxygen to the air. The tyre also uses the energy generated to power electronic devices embedded in the car.

The love of driving is not likely to fade but with environmental pressures building there is a genuine need to innovate.  This list includes great examples of the automotive industry adapting in light of climate concerns.
