“#AskArrivalAnything what is Arrival’s approach to organisational hierarchy, decision making and autonomy? you’ve taken a non-traditional approach to almost everything — is it the same in the way you function internally as a business?”

It is. At Arrival, we follow an internal method where we decrease complexity to maximise functionality, and this very much flows into our hierarchy and decision-making. We keep lean teams, we are all encouraged to ‘question everything’, plus come up with novel and innovative solutions to how we work together internally. Arrival’s lack of legacy is our biggest opportunity, and we ensure diverse ideas and thought are encouraged from all of us.

“#AskArrivalAnything Can you please let me know when your production vehicles be available & if you would be interested in Public Sector business?”

Vehicle production starts in Q4 this year with our Bus and the Van will follow in Q3 2022. We are speaking to both public and private sector businesses about helping to suport their goals as they transition to clean air vehicles.

“Since TfL withdrawn the vintage AEC Routemaster from passenger service, do you plan to collaborate with TfL to design a new double-deck electric bus inspired by the AEC Routemaster and New Routemaster designed by Heatherwick Studio? I do understand the half-cab and open platform won’t be suitable for the current condition of bus services in London.”

There are definitely opportunities in the future for Arrival to develop an Electric Double Deck Bus thanks to the clever way the team have developed the modular vehicle architecture of our Single Deck Low Floor Bus.

However, as of now, our immediate focus is launching our Single Deck product to the market, planned for Q4 2021.

Stay tuned for future product updates.
