It's true that reducing the fuel consumption is one of the most pressing problems automobile industry is facing. In fact, the industry needs innovation in engine design very badly. 

There are other problems too, which I think need to be addressed. 

1. How to bring the cost of vehicles lower. 

The transportation is a big problem and we desperately need innovation in bringing down the cost of manufacturing the personal automobiles. 

2. How can any mode of transportation - cars, trucks, two-weelers be made faster yet safer

Faster transportation is the need of the future. Bullet trains and aeroplanes are okay, but can the speed of personal vehicles be improved? Say, can we make cars go twice as fast; but at the same time, making them 10 times safer?
