Arrival pioneer of a new method of design and production of affordable electric vehicles (EVs) by local Microfactories reveals its van in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Presenting the van to key audiences, the Arrival European Roadshow will allow the public to see the distinctive and innovative van when it visits fifteen European cities between September 2021 and March 2022.
Arrival is expanding its presence across Europe and is taking the Arrival Van to nine countries in four months, including Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Norway, Netherlands, and Sweden. In addition, the company’s recent LeasePlan partnership announcement is based on an initial order of 3.000 vans and will see the Arrival Van rolled out across many of these European cities.
This summer, the Arrival Van has started public road trials with key customers and is expected to start full production in Q3 2022.
Arrival’s Microfactories enable local production across European cities and uplift the local community. The fully electric Van excels across cost, payload, and cargo volumes ranging from 10,5 – 18m3 per meter depending on the model height and length, with a substantially lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
In addition, Arrival vehicles are designed to maximize the safety and well-being of drivers and the public on our roads and streets using advanced technologies. These advanced features include ADAS, such as Advanced Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Other technologies to help the driver include digital e-mirrors, a 360-degree surround view, Traffic Sign Recognition, and many more.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing the Arrival Van to customers and consumers in Europe in the coming months. Over the past year, we’ve seen tremendous demand for the Arrival Van globally – in particular in Europe – as more and more fleet operators are looking to decarbonize their operations, in line with global public policy,” said Avinash Rugoobur, President at Arrival. “To enable businesses to transition to electric vehicles and excel in their operations while improving the environment, we’ve worked with operators and drivers to design and produce the Arrival Van to be a best-in-class solution with a TCO that makes the transition the best possible commercial decision too.”
