More and more public, shared and electric. Here's what the urban mobility according to all market and common sense indicators known to date. The direction is marked by the problem of air quality in the city (the news of pollution in Beijing is horrifying) and the need to give a cut on fuel costs. For petrol, 1 km costs from 12 to 20 cents, in electric for the same km you spend 2 cents.
