    Transportation & Communication are the two major sectors of the economy. In fact, the mobile revolution gives a huge revenue to the national exchequer, whereas automobile is being a heavy cost center, badly burdens the economy. A new concept can give an ample solution to the Automobile Sector. The proposed concept is to pull and get pushed, instead of carrying and moving the dead weight on wheels. The idea is to save fuel /energy consumption and in the meantime, to generate abundant free and clean energy. Objectives: 1. To free Automobiles Sector from a Lengthy Evolution to Revolution Mode 2. To Increase efficiency & capacity of vehicles 3. To move it from cost center status to a revenue generating sector 4. Social, economic & environmental solutions & benefits related to auto industry 5. To take advantage of the hugely invested road infrastructure to maximize its utilisation 6. To save and generate free and clean energy While the auto industry is in a major energy phase change, it is very essential to have some serious questions about the concept in use. The serious questions are: 1) Is it possible to use the gravity force as an alternate energy? 2) What are the weaknesses of existing (historic) concept of road transportation? 3) How the implementation of concept change can overcome them? 4) What is the scope of implementation of a concept change? 5) What will be the merits by concept change? 6) What is Opportunity the Smart City of Mangalore can enjoy? 7) While the Mobile Technology Revolution, Why Not the Automobile Industry Too? Let's think different and implement change
