Me, My Car, My Life

Can you imagine a day when our cars are the control center for our mobile lives? Well, guess what, that day is here, according to Gary Silberg, KPMG’s national automotive leader.


In fact, cars are more connected and technologically advanced than anyone could have ever imagined, says Silberg.  “Today’s high-tech vehicles and mobility-on demand services, like Uber and Zipcar, are completely transforming the auto industry and the way we live our lives…and it will only become more pronounced in the years ahead.”


In a new piece of ground breaking thought leadership launched today by the KPMG automotive practice, “Me, My Car, My Life,”  Silberg and the auto team suggest that the era of ubiquitous connectivity - the moment when you, your car and your life are one - has arrived.


“It will change your basic notions about mobility and revolutionize the way you think about and use your car,” offers Silberg.  “Because that car, like every other device you use, is part of an interconnected ecosystem that monitors and adapts to your schedule, your evolving priorities, your relationships and even your health.  Everything (including you) is networked, monitored.”


KPMG’s white paper allows readers to understand that the car is no longer just a way to get from point A to point B. In fact, it’s not just a car: It’s the control center for your mobile life.
