Summary/Abstract: Urban mobility is changing in the most cities in the developed world. More importantly, these changes are no longer related to the continuation of past trends, such as the significant increase in motorization in the second half of the 20th century. Instead, cities are increasingly seeing the impact of more destructive changes, whether as a result of technological innovation, socio-economic change or new political interventions. The significant and unexpected growth of urban bicycling; the growing importance of the car- and bicycle sharing; multimodal travel supported by smartphone travel applications; and rediscovery of walking in urban conditions are not only the common experiences in many cities, but they have become the main focus of the urban transport policy in the cities around the world. This study aims to address the issues of the sustainable mobility, how and via which policies and incentives will be realized and what are the challenges the automotive companies are facing. The methodology used for the study conduct is an analysis of primary and secondary information, a review of researches by leading consultancy companies, opinions and researches of the European institutions, and a regulatory framework to clarify the problems and opportunities for mobility. In order to solve the connectivity, safety and environmental issues, the automotive industry should work with other industries, institutions, NGOs etc.
