Some Arrival vans will be showcased at the Global Investment Summit, which will be held in London on Tuesday 19th October in Central London. Such a decision is due to the UK government, which picked Arrival as «one of the ‘Green Dozen’ UK-based companies excelling in areas of sustainability, innovation, and green technology». The Global Investment Summit will welcome 200 of the world’s most prominent decision makers, investors, C-Suite executives, and heads of major political institutions. In the meantime, why not to mention that Arrival has organized an European roadshow that will bring the e-vans all over the Old Continent until March 2022.
