Technology and the automotive industry are moving closer together than ever before. Technological progress leads to even better and more impressive, in terms of capabilities, cars. The recent crisis in microchips has brought to the surface this close interdependence as orders for new cars show significant delays due to a lack of semiconductors (chips).
However, we can not omit the fact that nowadays cars rely on too much technology and this often triggers reactions, such as the incredible reaction of Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato, who in an attempt to rejuvenate talks regarding the “heart” of the car, he said: "I sell Alfa Romeo and not a tablet with a car around".
Bloomberg displayed a stunning illustration of how much technology is used in a car. Shortly put there are 1400 microchips.
