Abstract
The advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) has brought about positive changes in every aspect of life as well as potential dangers for the nations or societies that fail to embrace the revolution. This study reviewed articles that analysed the potential benefits of the 4IR to Green Automobile and subsequent competencies requirements of the 4IR with respect to the Nigerian Automobile industry. Consequently, a systematic review through an inductive content analysis of empirical evidences from literature was conducted based on the contents and benefits of 4IR; green automobile and competencies required in the 4IR; Nigerian automobile industry and competencies required of the 4IR and the Future of Green Automobile and 4IR in Nigeria. The review showed that there is lack of support on the part of government on issues of green automobile. Inadequate power supply, educational system and non-functional automobile industries have also been identified as constraints to green automobile adoption in Nigeria. Competencies summarily put as: Information Technology Skills, Communication Skills, Thinking Skills, Creativity and Innovative Skills, Problem-solving Skills, amongst others were found to be highly recommended in other parts of the as requisite for any 4IR operation. Finally, the researcher therefore concludes and recommends that, the Nigerian government should reconsider its position to support green transportation; the power sector should be overhauled to power electric vehicle together with the education sector so as to develop the competencies needed for the 4IR.

Key words: Fourth Industrial Revolution 4IR, Green Automobile and Green Automobile Competencies.
