Mexican Global Mobility Company Presents 2022 Trends

City transport users have radically changed their consuming habits regarding mobility services, adopting carbon neutrality, electrification for individual and collective transportation, multimodality, digitization and artificial intelligence as the new mobility trends for 2022, according to Mobility ADO. 

After conducting a regional analysis to determine new consumer habits in Latin America's most important cities, Mexican global company Mobility ADO has revealed the five principal mobility tendencies that have determined the need to upgrade transportation standards through corporate governance, societal and environmental needs. 

"The mobility industry will see significant opportunities in 2022. Although Mexico and Central America are the company's main areas of influence, we have a long way to go to continue improving the quality of life of people in Latin America. Our commitment is to raise the standard of mobility throughout the region," said Juan Abascal, Director of Mobility Latam, MOBILITY ADO.

The company has signaled the use of cleaner energies in internal combustion to achieve carbon neutrality as the first trend, given that 70 percent of the industry’s energy comes from fossil fuels. Mobility ADO is expecting this electrification transition to be powered mainly by natural gas in public transportation.

Electrification in individual and collective mobility is the second most important trend in Latin America, as its gas emissions surpass those in Europe, Asia and North America. Mobility ADO is betting on establishing joint work within the region as electrification calls for infrastructure renovation in cities in hand with governmental regulatory frameworks.

The third trend sets multimodality, or the possibility of using multiple means of transport for faster traveling times, and interconnection as part of the new consuming habits of younger-age users, as these are used to plan their transportation routes through technological devices.

“In line with the massification of private shared mobility services, Mobility as a Service (MaaS) will be one of the most representative consumption habits for people who live in larger cities,” reported the company.

Mobility ADO’s analysis also indicated that digitization in the industry is key to remain relevant among users, so companies should develop tech solutions for mobility challenges that will improve efficiency, time and costs, in addition to guaranteeing sanitary security.

The last trend identified by the company considers artificial intelligence (IA) as the foundation of automated mobility at a global scale bringing in important benefits. For instance, Europe determined that using this type of technology in transportation would save the European Union around €61 million in road accidents and traffic jams.

Digital thinking is present in every trend and experts consider it to be the process through which organic social movement will improve the life of Mexican citizens, according to Juana Ramírez, CEO and Founder, Grupo Sohin.

“Today, success is no longer defined by the one who comes first or who proposes an idea for the first time: it belongs to those who know how to incorporate digital tools into their production processes and thereby improve the way of doing things,” wrote Ramírez to MBN.
