Arrival’s unique’microfactory’ in the United Kingdom creates its first electric vehicle
Arrival, a UK-based electric car company, revealed that its “microfactory” in southern England has created its first production verification vehicle. The announcement comes as the business is purportedly in discussions to secure funds to produce and sell electric automobiles in the United States.
The electric vehicle was built using “in-house technology such as composite materials, autonomous mobile robots, in-house components, and a software-defined factory,” according to the business. The achievement validates Arrival’s microfactory model, which consists of highly automated small-footprint facilities where the company aims to construct its cars.
