Early Adopters of the innovative approaches (products and services) The main avenue through which disruption in the automobile industry shall be affected is technology. The increased adoption of various technologies and improvements in these technologies provides the basis upon which the car industry shall be revolutionized with respect to the desired outcomes. There is a clear demonstration from companies such as BMW and Volkswagen who have produced electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles. BMW has formed a partnership to the same effect while Volkswagen and Ford have also intimated the formation of a complete line of transport services with electric vehicles. General Motors (GM) has combined forces with Honda on the same innovative agenda. Other firms include Jaguar electric model that is the pipeline while Subaru and Toyota have joined efforts towards the production of electric powered vehicles’, the taxi company, has launched an independent driving technology that makes optimal use of solar power in its taxi fleet. Nissan company is also switching to electric vehicles. This demonstration of the various car manufacturers in different parts of the world combining synergies and investing heavily in the creative and innovative designs of electric vehicles is adequate evidence of the automobile industry changes that are ever increasing. The explanation presents a blend of disruptive, incremental as well as game changing innovation that has characterized the car industries across the globe.[ CITATION Enr19 \l 1033 ]

DISRUPTIVE INNOVATION THEORY The incentive for the industry wide efforts to shift the automobile car industry from oil based to electricity-based vehicles is majorly pollution and traffic control. Various company stakeholders are pushing for the development of sustainability measures in the products and services provided by firms. Company stakeholders are becoming more aggressive in the demand for sustainability reports as well the actual verification of the environmental approaches. This observation is made in light of the changing environmental conditions that have occasioned the current epoch of our time. [ CITATION GBA18 \l 1033 ]Currently the world has the highest rate of temperature increase in decades despite the Paris agreement. The Paris agreement which was consensus of over 150 countries was reached with very specific provisions. Countries were to make significant efforts to lower their overall individual carbon footprint in the attempt to multiply the efforts towards reducing the rate of environmental degradation. Subsequently these efforts were geared at reducing the overall temperature rise to below 1.5 degrees Celsius annually. To date the annual incremental temperature has gone off the roof clearly manifesting the redundancy of efforts made after the Paris Agreement with some major countries such as the USA pulling out of the Paris Agreement just recently.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
