KNOW THE DRILL
Mobility is transforming, not only itself but our behaviours, cities and economies too. Ted Levitt’s much-quoted mantra that “people don't want to buy a quarter-inch drill, they want a quarter-inch hole” is useful in that it succinctly sums up the philosophy behind the changes that the automotive industry is witnessing today.
