Top 50 Autos Trends In August

From Contactless Car Displays to E-Commerce Auto Insurance

— August 30, 2020 — Autos
A number of prominent developments occurred in the August 2020 autos industry. As a whole, the industry is incorporating new technological solutions that enhance the capabilities of vehicles, and user experience.

One of the more important developments comes from Jaguar Land Rover and Cambridge University, where the collaboration produced a contactless touch screen. The contactless display can be used in future vehicles to help drivers pay more attention to the road instead of focusing on the car's controls.

Another announcement came from TuSimple, which is an organization that is attempting to create an autonomous trucking network. The company partnered with other organizations, including UPS, and expects to have its network operational by the year 2024.

Lastly, Amazon is launching car and motorcycle insurance to consumers in India. The launch was made possible through a partnership between Amazon and Acko General Insurance.
