Welcome to Driven, the story of the Detroit region’s leadership in advancing the future of next-generation mobility.

More than a century ago, the Detroit region put the world on wheels and changed the transportation landscape forever. Today the automotive ecosystem across the region and state, has grown into the densest cluster of automotive assets on the planet with 21 OEMs, 96 of the Top 100 suppliers to North America having a presence or headquarters here, and a $225 billion contribution to the state economy.

While Detroit remains the traditional center of the global automotive industry, it is now aggressively leading the industry’s evolution towards a connected, shared, electric and autonomous future.

The Detroit region is an 11-county area with a population of more than 5.4 million people and more than 300,000 businesses. Home to innovative technology, a growing mobility startup and venture capital ecosystem, and numerous connected and automated vehicle research projects and initiatives. Detroit is the global leader in next-generation mobility and is well-positioned to change the way the world moves people, goods, and services into the future.

Driven chronicles that story by sharing the talent, investment, innovation, and emerging assets that are shaping our mobility future. No one moves the world like Detroit, and no one tells the story like Driven.
