Auto Futures is offering journalists and industry professionals the opportunity to attend a free mobility event on Tuesday, 29 October 2019. Speakers from Groupe PSA, Imperial College London, Riversimple and ClientEarth will take part in Auto Futures’ latest panel discussion, moderated by BBC Radio 5 Live’s Rachel Burden.
The panellists will debate what fuels will be powering future mobility and why - and asking whether it really is the end of the road for the internal combustion engine.
Taking place at Thomson Reuters in Canary Wharf, London, journalists will be able to meet the panellists in a private Q&A session that will follow the main event, allowing media to gain more specific content tailored to their publication’s needs.
