Arrival, the vertically integrated technology company revolutionising the electric vehicle industry, today announced the hiring of Tom Elvidge as the CEO of Arrival Mobility in the UK, overseeing the growth of Arrival's mobility service offerings.Arrival Mobility is focused on building a radically different mobility ecosystem, with services that accelerate the transition from owning vehicles to using ‘mobility as a service'.

Tom joins the company bringing invaluable experience in the sector from his former role as the General Manager for Uber UK & Ireland. His tenure at Uber included leading the region's rides business across 40 towns and cities, providing millions of weekly trips to tens of thousands of drivers, and the expansion of Uber's reach across the UK.

This appointment follows Arrival's recent announcement that it has received an investment of $118M (£90M) from funds managed by BlackRock. This investment will be used to drive its international expansion plans, including the launch of its first U.S. Microfactory in South Carolina.

“As Arrival continues to develop new solutions to meet urban mobility needs, Tom is bringing a wealth of experience to help bring this area of the business to market,” said Avinash Rugoobur, President of Arrival. “Arrival is reinventing every area of the automotive landscape from the design of the vehicles, to their production and distribution, and Arrival Mobility will be reimagining how people use these products too.”

“I'm delighted to join Arrival at such an exciting time in the company's history with production beginning next year, and the team continuing to field large orders on the books,” said Tom Elvidge. “Arrival has a world-class team, industry-leading technologies, and an incredibly strong infrastructure, which combine to create huge potential. We are transforming the market through our technologies and Microfactories, and I'm looking forward to launching mobility solutions, based on zero-emission products and responsive to the needs of customers as we work with cities around the world.”

Arrival has developed its own core technologies in-house, including hardware, software and robotics, to enable the use of Microfactories to produce its electric vehicles. These Microfactories are low CapEx and low footprint and can be deployed in existing warehouses around the world close to areas of demand. Arrival is focused on all parts of the transportation ecosystem including tools for operators to run and manage their fleets with greater efficiency. Arrival's vehicles are competitively priced to fossil fuel equivalents and, when combined with the services being developed by the Arrival Mobility team, create an integrated ecosystem for cities and customers to elevate the transportation experience, reduce costs and enable “mobility as a service” offerings.

Arrival has over 1300 employees at offices around the world, including the UK, US, Israel, Russia, Germany and the Netherlands. The company recently doubled the size of its London HQ and in the last month alone added 100 employees.
