Which start-ups from the USA are currently shaking up the automotive industry?

These three trends from Silicon Valley are influencing the automotive industry. For the Handelsblatt Auto Summit, I was able to summarize a few exciting developments of the past few months. Particularly exciting from my point of view:

1. How far robo-taxis from Cruise and Waymo have come in their journeys through San Francisco.

2. Which of the many new carmakers are currently failing and which are taking off. The recent difficulties at Faraday Future are just one example. On the other hand, production at Lucid Motors seems to be getting off to a good start.

3. Which new tech companies are entering the automotive industry as suppliers. A visit to the laboratory of Sila Nanotechnologies Inc. was very enlightening, for example.
