Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in the Automotive Industry

Aaron Lewis, a design intern at Uber, ended an article he wrote with... "Owning a car will one day be like owning a horse - fun for the wealthy, but financially foolish for everyone else." It makes sense to me. However, the road towards that idea continues to inspire a lot of design ideas and opportunities. Here is FastCompany's Most Innovative list for the Automotive Sector in 2016:

  1. Hyundai - For augmenting autos with gesture-controlled heads-up displays
  2. Ford - For embracing e-bikes and ride sharing
  3. Tesla Motors - For adding autopilot features overnight and making your car come to you
  4. Quanergy - For developing software that makes driverless cars cheaper for the rest of us
  5. Sober Steering - For breathing a better breathalyzer into being
  6. Local Motors - For 3D printing a car we can actually drive
  7. Harman - For giving each passenger a "sound zone," paving the way for peaceful road trips
  8. Hudway - For creating the only app that keep's drivers' eyes on the road
  9. Getaround - For turning car owners into car loaners
  10. Evenflo - For building a car seat that alerts parents if a baby gets too hot or her seat belt unbuckles
