The world’s automotive industry is on the verge of dramatic transformation. Auto experts predict cars in the not-too-distant future will look very different from what we see on the roads today.

- Levi Tillemann fellow at the New America Foundation; co-founder of a clean-energy startup; and former adviser to the U.S. Department of Energy.
