Take a look at the story of how the challenge began.
“Is this exclusive to Uber? Will there be a car available to us regular consumers as well?”
It is not exclusive to Uber, no. We believe that by working with a range of partners from early in a vehicle development programme we can ensure that we accurately gather the appropriate requirements to deliver a world-class experience to users. We are delighted to be announcing that we are partnering with Uber today, and we intend to work with other organisations who can benefit from the Arrival Car.
We anticipate that the Arrival Car will be on sale in 2023, at which point it will be available for anyone to purchase the vehicle — whether that is ride-hail drivers, companies or anyone else.
“Has the pandemic affected how you design at all? If this becomes the new normal would be nice if transportation designers could build some immunity into the hardware. Enclosed driver area, separate air con circuits etc…”
Like many others, the ride-hail industry has gone through a very significant shift over the past 18 months, and this is something that we have and are considering as part of the design of Arrival Car. Ensuring that passenger and drivers feel safe — across a number of dimensions — is a key requirement.
“How accessible is the Arrival Car?”
At Arrival we are focused on designing and building vehicles that are as inclusive and accessible as possible and are designed fully around all stakeholders. This is the approach that we will also take for the Arrival Car, and we look forward to sharing more information over time.
