Driving electric vehicle innovation

Over the past years, there has been a transition from conventional, fossil-fuel powered cars to electric vehicles (EV), as technological advancements, as well as government policies and targets, lead the way to a greener future. The adoption of EVs globally is growing significantly and despite the Covid-19 pandemic, global sales of electric cars have accelerated over the past year, rising by 43 %. This shift towards EVs is important in the worldwide bid to reduce emissions and drive a green recovery, but it is creating a real challenge for the automotive industry to deliver on a mass scale high-performing vehicles that meet the growing customer demand. To do this successfully, resilient, robust and efficient in-vehicle connectivity solutions are essential.
