Ford Motor Co has made billions selling vehicles to the masses and the Ford family has also benefited from this fortune. However, Bill Ford Jr. is now worried about selling to many cars.
Henry Ford’s great-grandson is now thinking ahead of his time when there will be too many cars on the roads of the world’s major cities and is making his concerns public. Yesterday during a mobile device conference, Ford said that the industry should join forces with automakers and governments to produce solutions that will solve the world’s inevitable congestion problem.
With congestion already a major issue in most cities, the problem is only to get worse when the world’s population grows by another 2 billion people to 9 billion in four decades.
Bill Ford doesn’t have an ultimate solution to the issue but he said he sees a day when cars will communicate with each other on the roads, traffic lights and pedestrians.
I really hope he isn’t talking about driverless cars.
