After reporting on mobility and autotech at previous CES exhibitions (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020), I am happy to share what drew my attention this year. The unique format attracted fewer than half of last year’s exhibitors, i.e. 1960 vs 4500. The largest cohorts came from the USA (569), Korea (341), China (203) and France (135). Whereas 170,000 people attended last year, I assume more people were able to take part this year, which is a good thing. The digital venue will remain accessible until February 15 for content viewing.
This year’s main mobility / autotech topics were digital cockpit and in-cabin experience, electrification, and autonomous driving, although to a lesser extent.
