Based on 2 selected scenarios which figure under the headlines of expansion oriented mobility and sustainability oriented mobility, the major emerging trends in automotive technology and related areas are analysed with regard to their desirability and feasibility prospects inside these two scenarios. Based on this analysis, a number of conclusions are drawn for how to deal with the future challenges and options.
