Design trends are constantly changing in the automotive industry. The industry is shaped by how consumers react to the way vehicles are designed or introduced. When consumers react positively to a new vehicle or design trend, you’ll generally see the rest of the industry follow suit. The past two decades have been an important time for the automotive industry.
The changing pace of automotive trends determines the future of the industry as a whole. Consumer tastes do not always dictate trends alone as a lot of trends can be influenced by the success of a single automaker. We looked at automotive trends that are currently exploding and will define the future of the automotive industry as a whole.

While it is unclear if autonomous self-driving cars will still require you to have a driver’s license, the future of public transportation will soon change in a very short amount of time.
