Project: Envisioning the future car

Futurist Tom Cheesewright worked with Auto Trader to produce an in-depth report on the future car, looking at how it will transform over 10, 20 and 30 years. Using the Intersections methodology, Tom suggested a series of changes, covering electrification, self-driving, and cultural changes in our attitude to the automobile.

Tom supported the launch of the report by acting as spokesperson for the research, completing a day of radio interviews and a follow-up appearance on TV.

The story received extensive coverage, including on BBC News and newspapers and magazines around the world.
