Texas has leveraged its business friendly environment to become a North American automotive powerhouse. More than 470 automotive manufacturing firms directly employing 35,800 workers call Texas home, shipping more than 500,000 trucks a year and delivering more than $27 billion worth of automotive goods worldwide. Vehicle sales in Texas amount to a $60 billion business, making our state the second largest auto market in the U.S.
Automotive is big business in Texas but it’s an industry that is changing quickly. Texas is still “Truck Country,” with one in every four vehicles sold being a light truck, but Texans have embraced alternative fuels and electric vehicles and the state has been a leader in the infrastructure necessary to support widespread adoption. Add to that the rapid adoption of ridesharing and car sharing mobile technology, and urban-dwelling Millennials are questioning the “dream” of even owning a car.
This first-time topic for a Texas Lyceum conference will explore the changing automotive landscape in Texas. We’ll hear from industry leaders from the C-suite to the engineers and suppliers, the policy makers who govern the product and its franchised distribution, and the well-known - and not so well known - entrepreneurs who are challenging the status quo. And no conversation about autos would be complete without some practical behind the wheel “seat time” in what will prove to be an extraordinary experience in the application of automotive products and safe driving skills.
