The Automotive Shift to Electric Vehicles: Making New Friends but Keeping the Old

About This Webinar

Morgan Crapps, Principal, Parker Poe Consulting, offers a case study on Arrival, a newcomer to the commercial EV space that has recently announced microfactory projects in Rock Hill, SC ($46M investment; 240 expected jobs) and Charlotte, NC ($41M ; 250 expected jobs) and a corporate headquarters in Charlotte.

Morgan will also discuss how the movement to EVs is effecting automotive OEM's future plans as well as how it effects the existing supply chain. And, she will examine how state, federal and international mandates and regulations will effect the adoption and growth of the EV market, contemplating the role economic developers will play as the market evolves.

  • Challenges and opportunities for states who put state-specific EV-related mandates in place
  • Arrival’s decision to focus on the Charlotte region for their initial US expansion projects and headquarters
  • Infrastructure plan opportunities that economic developers should keep an eye on
