Quick Charge

Everything you need to know

Arrival appoints Adrian Nyman as Chief of Brand
Overseeing the next phase of growing Arrival’s global brand marketing, former Nike VP Adrian Nyman has joined us as Chief of Brand.

Arrival joins ITF Corporate Partnership Board
We’re partnering with the International Transport Forum (ITF) to work on the decarbonisation of transport and engage with policy makers, for meaningful action in cities.

Making Transport Accessible to Everyone
We invited wheelchair users to test Arrival Gamma Bus ramp prototypes at our Banbury R&D lab, as part of our mission to make the most accessible and inclusive vehicles possible.


“#AskArrivalAnything Will you open internship or Recent Graduates positions in London anytime soon?”

We have just started our first trial graduate scheme in the UK and hope to roll out further programmes in the future. Please submit your CV on our website if you are interested in taking part.

“Hey Arrival! Why did the slab faced van design change? It looked so good!”

The new design allows us to rapidly create a range of custom variants for different use cases — this is crucial for the commercial market where customer needs vary a huge amount. Until now, products on the market have given customers little opportunity for customisation. That being said, we still love the Alpha design too and perhaps we will see that again in the future.

“Although you’re still in early stages with your single-deck electric bus prototypes, when do you plan to manufacture New Routemaster-style double-deck electric buses for the London bus market, and to help London retain their iconic ‘London Bus’ symbol?”

London is one of the many global cities we are looking to work with. At present we are focused on getting the single decker bus into production at the end of this year, but our modular design allows us to rapidly produce different variants quicker than a traditional OEM, so watch this space!

To submit a question to r/AskArrivalAnything send us a message on Twitter or Facebook using #AskArrivalAnything. As we continue to develop solutions for cities that help drive sustainability goals, your questions, feedback and comments form a critical part of the process.
