Car Sales Gears Up For A New World Of Car Ownership

With the realization that in the long run a certain change is coming, businesses are gearing up for what could possibly be one of the biggest revolutions ever. Rapid development in autonomous driving technology and the popularity of car-share and ride-share services, have led some to predict private car ownership will dwindle in the near future, eventually being replaced with fleets of shared, driverless vehicles.


“I can’t imagine a world where I don’t own a car, But I might own an autonomous one and I might drive it to work and rather than leave it in the garage … I might plug it into a ride-sharing platform where it might drop me off and then drive around the city picking up people and dropping them off.” states Carsales chief executive Cameron McIntyre.
