We have surpassed the inflection point for electric vehicles as a perfect storm of factors are now upon us. Governments are rolling out policies to motivate the shift to electric mobility, car companies are investing in the tech, consumer demand is at an all-time high, private investment has increased, and climate concerns are driving innovation and interest. To support the mass adoption of EVs, a comprehensive, collaborative ecosystem is required.
