We’ve learned that 75% of all driving is done alone with just a personal bag and everyone will be using cars in a short term, a la carte fashion in The Mobility Cloud. This means there’s no longer any need to be using a 5000 pound, 5 passenger vehicle to drive twenty minutes to work. Especially when at the conclusion of the journey, the user will just exit the vehicle and the autonomous vehicle will go on to pick up another fare.

This is the vehicle that’s going to inherit the industrialized and developing world once humanity starts using the The Mobility Cloud. There have been many previous concepts that point the way to this solution, but as explained in the next section, none of the previous efforts have been quite right.
