MaaS Tipping Point

MaaS Tipping Point

From Year 0 (BCE/CE): 2040

This is the self-driving EV taxi tipping point. The year EV taxis outnumber individually owned vehicles world wide. While individually owned vehicles will likely be a part of society forever, nearly everyone owning at least one is unsustainable over the long-term. A key point in this journey into the future is the year that self-driving EV taxis outnumber individually driven vehicles.

A Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) vehicle is an autonomous, electrically powered car designed to transport passengers without the need for a human driver. Equipped with advanced sensors, cameras, and artificial intelligence systems, these vehicles navigate roads, obey traffic laws, and respond to dynamic driving conditions autonomously. Primarily powered by electric batteries, they offer a sustainable alternative to traditional taxis by reducing emissions and minimizing environmental impact. As part of a broader shift towards smarter urban mobility solutions, self-driving EV taxis aim to enhance the efficiency, safety, and accessibility of public transportation systems.
