Top 50 Auto Innovations in July

From VIP Drive-In Screenings to Supercar SUV Concepts

— July 29, 2020 — Autos
The top July 2020 auto trends cover everything from last-mile delivery solutions and an increase in drive-in events to innovations in autonomous vehicle technology. As the way people travel, receive goods and experience live events changes, every industry is being given the opportunity to change the way people and products get from place to place safely.

As of late, there's been a surge of drive-ins and drive-thrus offered to help people keep safe distances from one another while still enjoying their favorite experiences.

Businesses are now reopening and focusing on minimizing contact between customers and staff, and this intention is taking on more meaning than ever with the rise of self-driving solutions for everything from navigating airport terminals and public transit to fire fighting units and large-scale transportation trucks.
