Milestone announcement for the automotive industry

The automotive industry is racing toward an all-Electric, connected, autonomous future. We recently discussed the impact regarding the race for manufacturers to reach this milestone and what this means for professionals working in the industry.

Coming into 2019, we’re seeing further advancement in the pursuit of an all-Electric Vehicle (EV) future, as numerous high profile Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) launch their first EV ranges into the market this year. Lindsay Hartland, Associate Partner at Huxley, expressed his excitement at this news, “This is a hugely exciting announcement for everyone working within the industry. At Huxley, we’ve been working with a range of Automotive manufactures and autotech developers who’ve been striving towards this goal for years, so the fact we’re one step closer to achieving this vision really is exciting. This is undoubtedly an important milestone for the industry.”

Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Nissan, Kia, and Volvo are all making bold statements regarding their contribution towards electric vehicles. While their latest offerings may be varied, the fact we’ll be seeing so much progression in 2019 means this is a huge step towards the future that the industry seems committed to achieving. We’re able to see tangible developments across the space. Lindsay commented, “While some of these announcements are upgrades to existing ranges, we’re also being promised hugely innovative projects such as the first electric mini and the first fully electric Audi. Arguably the most highly anticipated of all these is the Porsche Taycan, with an 800-volt system, an anticipated 300 mile range, and the fastest electric vehicle charging we’ve seen to date!”

At Huxley, we’re passionate about contributing towards the growth of the industry’s we work within, and our commitment to the progression and development of talent across the automotive space has been huge. According to Lindsay, “We work with so many skilled and driven professionals who’ve been working tirelessly to drive us towards the future, and this is only just the beginning.” If you want to know more about the automotive markets Huxley works across, feel free to get in touch with Lindsay today.
