Death Of The $2 Trillion Traditional Auto Industry
Tesla is now bigger than Exxon. BlackRock has taken over Wall Street. Even unprofitable, Uber and Lyft are threatening to overtake the $1-trillion auto industry and they’ve only scratched the surface. Now, the worldwide $2-trillion auto industry is next in line for disruption.
This is the Fourth Industrial Revolution–kicked into high-speed gear by a global pandemic. And it’s all about tech-driven freedom.
For the auto industry, in particular, it’s a double threat:
Tesla is now the most valuable car maker “of all time”. And with combined market caps of some $70 billion, Uber and Lyft are also severely disrupting the giant auto industry.
Tesla is worth almost $225 billion (or quarter of a trillion dollars), while the top three American automakers–GM, Ford and Chrysler–are worth around $70 billion–the same as Uber and Lyft.

It is the first to offer riders a choice of EVs and hybrids, and to plant trees to offset its carbon footprint.
It brings cities and communities on as stakeholders, rather than defying them, and treats its drivers as people who deserve living wages.
It views shared mobility as much more than a ride: This is about technology, and Facedrive has launched multiple revenue streams that take advantage of the rider relationship.
Now, it’s starting to go international.
A series of smart acquisitions and new service launches have positioned it to be a key challenger to the shared mobility throne.
But it’s about to get even more exciting, with a government endorsement for high-tech COVID tracing and new partnerships on the boardroom deal table …
