Ozgur also touched on the emerging trends in the car industry, including the connected car and Clean Air agendas.
“You highlighted one major trend around electric vehicles, and you have the drive towards autonomous vehicles. There is not much talk about how the new entity will be embracing these new trends. We have to realise that all of these companies need to embrace these big shifts in the car industry in order to be successful in the long run.”
