Arrival has inaugurated a roadshow in Europe. Starting from September, the disruptive company starts a tour across some of the main European cities to put on display the electric van conceived to be suitable also for local micro factories. The tour started from Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, and will touch fifteen cities until March 2022.
The manufacturer with HQs in London is expanding its presence across Europe and is taking the Arrival Van to nine countries in four months including Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Norway, Netherlands and Sweden. The company’s recent LeasePlan partnership announcement is based on an initial order of 3,000 vans and will see the Arrival Van rolled out across many of these European cities. Arrival’s Microfactories enable local production across European cities and uplift the local community.
«Thrilled to be bringing the Arrival Van to Europe»
«We’re thrilled to be bringing the Arrival Van to customers and consumers in Europe in the coming months. Over the past year, we’ve seen tremendous demand for the Arrival Van globally – in particular in Europe – as more and more fleet operators are looking to decarbonise their operations, in line with global public policy,», said Avinash Rugoobur, President at Arrival. «To enable businesses to transition to electric vehicles and excel in their operations while improving the environment, we’ve worked with operators and drivers to design and produce the Arrival Van to be a best-in-class solution with a TCO that makes the transition the best possible commercial decision too».
The Arrival Van has started public road trials with key customers this summer and is expected to start full production in the third quarter of 2022.
