EV Watch for Wednesday

The idea is to have more more modularity and standardization for components like batteries and motors, helping streamline production and cut costs.

The Andy Analysis
Hyundai is clearly setting the pace for all EV companies with their stated positioning that so much as saying that the car is a “computer on wheels.” With this they have defined the creation of a series of ecosystems that need to be in place. While TESLA has already done the technology part, neither they, nor any other EV manufacturer has been able to strike the balance of storytelling and technology like Hyundai has just done.
The Andy Analysis
For years GM was it’s own ecosystem of sorts. They had their manufacturing divisions of Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac, Body By Fisher, AC-Delco for parts like batteries and more. Now what they’re doing with battery power is a page out of their own history books, making the line, “whats old, is new again” so very apropos.
