The automotive industry is fast transforming, with autonomous, connected, electric, and sharing (ACES) vehicles becoming increasingly common. Urbanisation, shifting consumer expectations, competition, innovation, and newly developed technologies are creating a new mobility environment and paving the way for massive innovation. It is anticipated that by 2030, 96% of all new vehicles will have built-in connection, with at least one in every two vehicles sold being electric. The global connected car market is worth roughly $88.42 billion in 2023, expected to grow to $191.83 billion by 2028. With smarter cars, smarter consumers, and more data at your fingertips than ever before, provides ongoing services to car buyers through connected car technology.
The industry is rapidly changing, old operating model's future is uncertain.To keep up, incumbents must shift by rapidly establishing new business models and services. Success will be determined by their capacity to fundamentally integrate innovative technologies, transform work processes and culture to agile best practices, as well as innovate, attract fresh talent, and engage tomorrow's consumers.
The Batteries Energy Storage System (BESS) will be a critical enabler of the transition to a low-carbon society while being the most expensive devices in the vehicle. While EVs account for 90% of global demand for lithium-ion batteries, collaborative networks capable of efficiently collecting rare materials and maximising their lifespan have yet to emerge.

We collaborate with our clients to create effective businesses, innovate and grow, decrease costs, manage complexity, de-risks operation and enhance regulatory compliance, employ talent, and negotiate better deals. We bring a sharp industry perspective, global experience working with leading OEMs, technology innovations and valuable insights. We deploy our abilities to support our clients solve complex operational challenges, develop effective product strategies, manage new products development programmes to market and restructure processes to increase efficiency and quality.
Over the next decade, new technologies will continue to transform the automotive industry, vehicle design, ADAS, in vehicle (IVS) and Telematics technologies and connectivity, as well as model-based system engineering (MBSE) and agile management practices. From autonomous, connected, and electric vehicles and shared (ACES) addressing sustainability and reducing transportation emissions to smart mobility, digital twins, intelligent supply chain systems and quantum computing speeding up product design and development and addressing complexity, innovation with next-generation solutions remains central to current efforts in the Autotech world. While these technologies promise greater prospects and economic benefits, improved customer experience (UX/CX), and increased industry growth, achieving their full potential is not without obstacles.
We work collaboratively and enable our clients on strategic and operational initiatives, helping them to deploy industry-leading methodologies and solutions, enhance capabilities, innovate and transform their business, products and services to accelerate performance and drive value creation. Additionally, strengthen strategic management, business models and systems, enhance agility and resilience, improve sustainability, accelerate digital transformation journey, de-risk operations and future proof their business.

The increasing global competition necessitates intelligent manufacturing systems integrated with adaptable logistics systems. Which can be readily adapted to meet the growing demand for model diversity. At SSCG, we help automotive companies develop strategies and integrate innovative technologies to increase their core strengths, productivity and efficiency. Identify the appropriate supply chain models and design alternatives to meet manufacturing challenges efficiently at cost, quality and timely.
The automotive industry is very dynamic and requires extreme flexibility, adaptability and agility. The benefits of manufacturing processes digitisation are quite clear as robotics and automated processes provide high levels of accuracy, efficiency, productivity and to accomplish more complex engineering tasks. We support our clients asses their manufacturing capabilities, plan to stand in the competition, cope with developments around Industries 4.0, demographic change and data-driven production.
Micro mobility sector in Africa encompass a strong customer base and has done so roughly two to three times faster than either car sharing or ride hailing. The sector has been core for intra and inner cities transportation across the region and continues to grow. In just a few years, several micro mobility start-ups have been launched. However the sector faces constraints include its suitability for relevant mobility use cases, safety control, customer adoption, vehicle age fit, low carbon emission control, congestion and traffic management and micromobility’s lower presence in rural areas.
To stimulate African automotive manufacturing and assembly localisation, industrialisation and growth of local market for new vehicles, traditional dealership models and aftermarket must be transformed to limit the volume of imported second hand vehicles and components imported. Favourable policies, framework and strategies should instituted.
Rolls-Royce Power Systems business unit is opening its headquarters for East Africa in Kenya.
Isuzu East Africa has launched a $3.5M Ultra-Modern Paint Plant.
Africa’s automotive market is expected to grow by 40 per cent to reach $42.06B by 2027.
Africa’s automotive market size is expected to grow from 1,325.89 thousand units in 2023 to 1,777.69 thousand units by 2028.
Auto and mobility business services can generate value in multiple ways; by accelerating growth, improving margins, increasing income stream predictability, and boosting both customer and product intimacy. Beyond these evolving stakes, companies must move proactively to capture the next opportunities: Use digital technologies to increase technical and customer experience and adopt connectivity-driven commercial models to capture consumer data to aid planning and decision making.
Given high commodity prices and the predicted tight supply of nickel and cobalt in the coming years. Recycling EV batteries can make sense as battery electrodes contain highly valued metals. While having an additional source of battery metals through recycling can be compelling to battery makers looking to secure supply, it is critical now to develop a recycling process that is sufficiently cost-competitive with mining for the path to gain scale. However, to unlock this new pool of battery supply, four challenges in repurposing must be overcomed while battery-ownership models evolve: battery-pack design size, falling cost for new batteries, second-life-battery quality or performance standards and immature regulatory regime

Today’s automotive corporate leaders navigate a complex environment that is changing at an ever-accelerating pace. In a risk environment that is growing more perilous and costly, leaders need to help steer their companies toward resilience and value by embedding strategic risk capabilities throughout their companies. Most companies operate in a complex, industry-specific risk environment. They must navigate macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainties and face risks arising in the areas of strategy, finance, products, operations, and compliance and conduct. In auto companies and suppliers have developed advanced approaches to managing risks that are specific to their business models. These approaches can sustain significant value. At the same time companies are challenged by emerging new types of risks for which they need to develop effective mitigation plans; in their absence, the losses from serious risk events can be crippling.
Companies must control supply-chain risks with sophisticated monitoring models that allow to identify potential risks upfront across the supply chain. At the same time, need to address the strategic challenge of shifting toward electric-powered and autonomous vehicles, connected consumer, automotive digitisation and stringent regulatory.
