Event summary produced by The Globe and Mail Events team. The Globe’s editorial department was not involved.
On February 24, editors and reporters for The Globe and Mail’s Drive section hosted a series of discussions on the state of the automotive industry, which has faced a unique set of challenges over the past year with restrictions and limitations on the movement of people in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event kicked off with a special presentation from Globe Drive editor Stephanie Chan, who revealed the results of a unique survey of Globe Drive readers conducted in partnership with KPMG that provides a snapshot of consumer automotive preferences in January 2021. The event also featured a fireside chat with two team members from Project Arrow – an e-vehicle wholly designed and manufactured in Canada that is set to launch in 2021. Panel discussions included a deep dive into the future of alternative fuel vehicles, as well as what’s on the horizon in the vehicle ownership market, and featured representatives from Toyota, Porsche, Turo, KPMG, Clean Energy Canada, and more.
