EV-specific connected services

Publication Date: 02-Mar-2023

As connectivity continues to redefine mobility, it is also unmistakably driving electric vehicle (EV) adoption and proliferation. While vehicle connectivity and electrification are inextricably linked and complement each other, they are also inherently discrete.

While connectivity is indispensable to any vehicle today, it is particularly relevant for EVs which have a very high software content and an electronic-oriented architecture. As EVs move about leveraging connectivity to constantly update their software and add new features and functions, they continue to evolve through their lifecycle and stay relevant for longer.
