Top 35 Transportation Trends in October

From Autonomous EV Concepts to Retro-Themed Electric Boats

— October 3, 2019 — Autos
These October 2019 transportation trends range from autonomous EV concepts to retro-themed electric watercrafts. This month's sustainability-focused innovations include Mercedes-Benz' EQS Concept Car that is both eco-friendly and luxuriously designed. The concept vehicle does not only run on electrical power but is also autonomous and features elements made from recycled materials.

Going beyond cars, electric transportation is on the rise with examples like the Tahoe-14 electric boat featured. The boat fuses vintage-themed craftsmanship and design with an electric engine that is designed to be silent. The watercraft's 24V Torqeedo Cruise motor eliminates unwanted noise for those on the water and surrounding it and encourages serene travel.

Additional October 2019 transportation trends include electric delivery vehicle fleets like Amazon's recent partnership with Rivian which aims to make product transport and delivery more seamless and sustainable.
