Q&A with Ford CEO Mark Fields – Los Angeles Times

Posted: Thursday, November 24, 2016

Most car company executives appear at the annual Los Angeles Auto Show to tout their brand’s new vehicles or crow about its balance sheet.

Ford Chief Executive Mark Fields came to town this year to give the kick-off keynote speech at AutoMobility L.A., the industry-only portion of the massive car show, and didn’t discuss those things at all.

Instead, he talked about the future of mobility, the “city of tomorrow” and how Ford is trying to find its place in a changing transportation landscape that — confronting autonomous driving, connected cars and ride-sharing —  may soon have no place for traditional car companies.

The following is an edited version of the conversation.
