The drive to Net Zero is underway – Future mobility is electric

According to a recent sector report by Reuters, global car manufacturers plan to commit some $300billion to accelerate electric vehicle technology in the run up to 2030.

That figure excludes significant related EV spend by automotive suppliers, technology firms and large corporations in other industries ranging from energy and aerospace to electronics and telecommunications.

The EV transition is reshaping the world’s automotive sector and opens new opportunity in changes in the supply chains originally formed around ICE vehicles.
The challenges to extend driving range, provide convenient rapid charging infrastructure and make EV purchase affordable for more consumers are matched by manufacturers’ ambitions to use ever-more sophisticated technology to develop a smarter, connected and distinctive driving experience.
Already partnering with some of leading EV charging system and battery technology corporations across the globe, Astute understands the needs of the electric vehicle market.
Our global sourcing services help both manufacturers and suppliers find the components they need to develop the EV technologies and offerings that are smoothing the road to mainstream adoption.

Leveraging and extending our well-established experience in the automotive, military vehicle and rail sectors, Astute’s EV franchise manufacturer portfolio also includes a range of component manufacturers specialising in solutions for the electric vehicle market.
