Hyundai wants all of its vehicles to support over-the-air updates by 2025 | Engadget
Though already having some success with its Ioniq lineup, Hyundai has far bigger plans for its EV future - including taking a page from Tesla in terms of software updates. The automaker just unveiled a new roadmap, saying it'll invest $12.6 billion to transform its lineup across brands into "Software Defined Vehicles" (SDVs).
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.
GM's electric future extends far beyond car-making
GM is transforming into more than an electric car company. It's becoming a diversified energy company - selling battery technology and energy management services to power not just cars, but also trains, boats, commercial equipment and buildings.
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.
