Ranging from massive assembly plants to small start-up high-tech suppliers, and from long-term supply chain partners to hometown car dealers, the industry faces unusually wide-ranging operational and financial challenges. Few industries are more symbolic of the transformational era in which we live. Every aspect of the automotive industry is under review to determine the landscape of personal mobility in the years to come.
