EV manufacturer Arrival has been selected by the UK Government to showcase to leaders of the business world at the Global Investment Summit in London.

Working towards the delivery of the Prime Minister’s ten point plan for a green industrial revolution, the summit will be hosted by the Prime Minister and supported by members of the royal family, bringing 200 of the world’s most prominent decision makers and investors to the UK.
The summit takes place on Tuesday 19 October in Central London followed by an evening reception at Windsor Castle, where Arrival will be featured as one of the ‘green dozen,’ a group of twelve companies behind the’ latest cutting-edge innovations’ that the Government believes can help cement the UK’s position as a world leading centre for green technology, as well as highlighting what it called the ‘global positive impact’ of Arrival’s technologies and new method of EV manufacturing.

During the Central London event, attendees will be able to experience Arrival’s zero-emission electric vehicles through digital experiences, and hear from Arrival’s President, Avinash Rugoobur, as part of a panel discussion. Avinash said: “It’s an honour to be selected by the UK Government to present Arrival at the Global Investment Summit. Arrival’s rapid growth is a clear reflection of the demand for more sustainable and equitable mobility solutions for cities and governments here in the UK, and around the world. We’re proud to showcase Arrival’s mission and our in-house innovations in such a prestigious setting, as we transform the automotive industry and pioneer a radical new method of EV design and production in local Microfactories globally.”

Minister for Investment Gerry Grimstone said: “The Global Investment Summit will put UK innovation on the map and demonstrate how we can use investment to nurture technological developments and propel our economy towards a more prosperous, exciting future. Our showcase businesses show why the UK is a global hub for green technology, and I am proud that Arrival will be presenting their innovative zero-emission electric vehicles through digital experiences to some of the world’s most high profile investors at the summit. Our industries of the future like the automotive industry will not only help ensure a cleaner, greener planet but also create high value jobs in Oxfordshire and across the UK.”

Arrival’s EV range includes the Van and the Gamma Zero bus. ARRIVAL
