Earth911 Podcast Innovator Interview

Earth911’s Mitch Ratcliffe talks with Ideanomics CEO Alf Poor about the evolution of transportation. We need new systems for vehicle charging in public transportation and distribution,  more electric alternatives to cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, and scooters, as well as new approaches to paying for mobility. We may soon be paying just for the distance we travel while the vehicles we use become shared assets managed and maintained by companies that specialize in specific types of transportation. Ideanomics takes a holistic approach to solving these problems, creating companies to tackle a variety of the challenges we face as we reinvent our economy and transportation systems. It is a publicly traded company dedicated to reinventing transportation for sustainability — it trades on the NASDAQ under the symbol IDEX.
