What Will Move Us Next?: IAA Mobility 2021 Highlights

With 2021 coming to a close and some countries slowly easing restrictions within their country, the post-pandemic world has certainly been enlightened to how mobility affects us significantly.

Mobility can be labelled as an umbrella term that encapsulates a wide range of functions either as enabling mobility or in itself mobility. Especially in our digital world, the possibility is simply limitless from our standard automobiles to digital solutions and urban air mobility. With the global vision of an all-electric future, the organisers of IAA Mobility 2021, have brought together a phenomenal trade show that has been a trending topic among trade leaders, international corporations and fans of the latest automotive innovations. 

400,000 participants from 95 countries – 744 exhibitors and 936 speakers from 32 countries – 67 percent of visitors under the age of 40 – international media reach of 137 billion – survey shows very positive exhibitor and visitor response. All these statistics makes it further evident that the premiere of IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich, from the 7th to 12th September, was a roaring success and is now the largest mobility event in the world.

“We took a courageous step and were rewarded by the visitors,” said Hildegard Müller, President of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), which organized the first IAA Mobility this year jointly with Messe München.

“What will move us next?” is the motto of this year’s show with three key pillars being mobility of the future, commitment to constant change, and a platform for all those shaping the future. Among the massive list of exhibits, some were well-known OEMs such as Renault, Hyundai, Ford, BMW, MINI, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen, Huawei, Microsoft, IBM, Bosch, Magna, Schaeffler, Continental, Michelin, and the bicycle brands Canyon, Specialized, Riese & Müller, Rose, Kettler and many more.

“We are now evaluating the event and will further develop our strategy so that we can welcome an even broader spectrum of exhibitors at the next IAA MOBILITY, and to continue the dialog on the future of mobility.,” Hildegard Müller said. 

Regardless of the event format in Munich, the IAA Mobility will continue operating its website www.iaa.de, making it a worldwide digital platform for the transformation of mobility on the path to climate neutrality, for innovations around cars, bikes, scooters, car and ride sharing, digitization and urban development.

Dyson To Manufacture “Made-In-Singapopre” Electric Cars By 2021

Dyson To Manufacture “Made-In-Singapopre” Electric Cars By 2021

SINGAPORE: Dyson has announced yesterday (23 October) that it will be entering the electric car market and the company intends to begin manufacturing its first electric car from a facility in Singapore by 2021. The British company is currently known for its bladeless fans and bagless vacuum cleaners, but with a shift towards automobile production, the company will be developing a high technology manufacturing facility with robotic and automation systems. Additionally, a team of 400 people have been assembled and will look towards spending £2 billion (S$3.6 billion) on the project to take on the likes of Tesla and other automotive giants.

Reasons for the this venture into the automotive industry include the company’s readiness to re-enter the industry after initially abandoning a project on diesel particulate filter systems in the 1990s. As mentioned by Jim Rowan, CEO of Dyson, “the decision of where to make our car is complex, based on supply chains, access to markets and the availability of the expertise that will help us achieve our ambitions,” he has also added that, “[Dyson’s] existing footprint and team in Singapore, combined with the nation’s significant advanced manufacturing expertise, made it a frontrunner. Singapore also offers access to high-growth markets as well as an extensive supply chain and a highly-skilled workforce.”

In a Facebook post, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has commented that Sir James Dyson, who is the founder of Dyson, had informed him that the company had decided upon Singapore as a manufacturing hub because of the country’s expertise in advanced manufacturing, global and regional connectivity and the quality of research scientists and engineers within the country.
