Technological progress and new lifestyle demand is changing the way we live and affects the future development and usage of technologies in different areas including the automotive sector. According to this demand, the future car is aiming to be smart, clean and autonomous. To be able to achieve that in the relatively short time given by the social demand, we need to assess, evaluate and establish a combination of new, emerging and existing skills pools to define future job roles and skills required for the design, production and maintenance of cars. Mapping these skills onto the phases of engineering, production, and maintenance in the automotive life cycle outlines an interesting future picture of a vehicle that will integrate smart technologies, smart production, smart maintenance and continuous machine learning. In this paper the job roles supporting this future are proposed and discussed.
