Cars to be the next smartphone, says Hyundai CEO

Technology and Innovation is moving rapidly from the app economy of the smartphone to vehicles– a shift for which both tech firms and automakers are quickly preparing.

Companies such as Google and Apple are leading the charge for self-driving vehicles. Meanwhile, vehicle manufacturers like Volvo are preparing their fleet for the day autonomous vehicles take the road, with sometimes unintentional outcomes. Earlier this year, the Swedish firm announced that it would be the very first automaker to change physical car keys with a smartphone app.

Hyundai Motors America CEO David Zuchowski said that it is a “big transformative event” that might eventually lead to cars replacing mobile phones as wise devices.

“We need to accept technology like everybody else is,” Zuchowski told in a recent interview from the sidelines of this year’s New York Auto Show.
