Arrival might be probably the most invaluable electrical car firm you have by no means heard of. Based within the UK and listed on the US Nasdaq stockmarket, it’s price $8bn (£5.7bn). But it is not making automobiles, it’s specializing in industrial automobiles – vans, buses and taxis.
Instead of organising large factories to construct as many automobiles as shortly as potential and ship them world wide, Arrival plans to arrange small, so-called micro-factories to construct merchandise near the place they will be offered.
