Jean Todt Speaks To Bentley On The Future Of The Automotive Industry [Video]

In a series of videos released by Bentley titled “Bentley Mulsanne Visionaries,” one of the videos happens to be an interview with Jean Todt the current President of the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA).

Although the video is made to promote the Bentley Mulsanne which was first introduced to market in 2010, it is still rather informative.

Jean Todt has led an interesting career in the automotive industry starting of as a rally co-driver, to motor sport  management  with the Peugeot Talbot Sport and then with Ferrari, after which he was also the CEO of the Luxury car brand Ferrari from 2004 to 2008, before taking up his current duties as President of FIA.

In the video, Jean Todt point out his love of cars, and racing, his vision for the future of the automotive industry in terms of engine advancements as the development of electric vehicles.

Having been involved with the automotive industry Jean Todt appreciates the advancements in technology, the improvement in driver safety within Formula one and hopes that the synergy between racing and road cars would continue to lead to improvements for all to benefit from.

One of the point he makes is that the automotive industry is still young, being only about a century old, and questions “How will a car be in 100 years, when it is already difficult to say how a car will be like in 10 or 15 years.”
