Following a recent €100 million investment from Hyundai Motor Group earlier in 2020, Arrival remains a very agile company. With only 1,200 employees, it is pioneering a new way of manufacturing transport, decentralising what is traditionally a deeply centralised process thanks to vertical integration of key technologies and the use of micro-factories.

The interview, as ever, was co-hosted with Russell Goldsmith of the csuite podcast.
