Figuring out the future of the automobile in our lives

© 2021 Global Automakers of Canada. All rights reserved

This is a podcast about the future of the automobile and automotive industry in Canada. The context for the name of the podcast relates to the myriad of factors currently impacting the automotive industry and ultimately the role of the automobile in our society. From climate change and the emission reduction imperative to better ways of moving people and goods around, the industry is rapidly evolving with a future that is not entirely clear. Part educational, part advocacy “From Here to Where” will interview those in the industry and outside of the industry that can provide insight on the many changes impacting the industry.

From Here to Where?

David Adams is the President and CEO of Global Automakers of Canada, the national trade association representing fifteen European, Korean and Japanese automobile manufacturers in the Canadian market. Having served in his role for more than 15 years, David has experienced first-hand the disruption that has occurred, is occurring, and will continue to occur in the automotive industry — not only in the vehicle itself , but also in the broader public policy context as issues of climate change, digitization, global trade and supply chains, the “internet of things” and vehicle automation, create both great challenges and great opportunities for automakers and their ICT partners.


In this episode of “From Here to Where?” I chat with Matt Girgis, Managing Director of Volvo Cars Canada for the last four years. A Canadian, with international experience, Matt talks about the affection Canadians have with the Volvo brand and how Volvo is working in its sphere of influence to reduce emissions and enhance consumer experience by delivering exceptional products that incorporate the highest degrees of both safety and sustainability for their consumers. This episode tracks the history and growth of the Volvo brand in the Canadian marketplace.
