For decades, Tennessee has led the Southeast in the automotive industry. To build upon this legacy while also working to diversify the state’s economy, it is time to look toward the future.
Mobility – the movement of people and goods around the globe – is the new term encompassing the automotive and transportation sectors. With recent technological and innovative advancements, new opportunities exist in creating efficient and sustainable mobility solutions with a focus on digitization and connectivity.
In order to remain a powerhouse in the automotive space, Tennessee is ready to invest in and leverage our state’s assets in research & development and human capital to position Tennessee as the premier destination for mobility and automotive research, innovation and the next generation of high-quality jobs.
