Three world-leading engineers from across the planet joined BBC presenter Kevin Fong in a special event at the Science Museum.
From the fuel that powered them to the drivers who drive them, engineers are innovating every aspect of the automobile. Solar powered vehicles, full automation, clean fuel cars and electrification… engineers at the forefront of reimagining the car answered questions from the audience.
Arjo van der Ham created a solar powered family car, Jamie Shotton pioneers machine learning in vehicles and automated cars that are networked and Linda Zhang electrifies a gas-guzzling cultural icon, America's most popular vehicle - the Ford F150 Lightning Pick-Up.
