STMicroelectronics Cooperates with Arrival to Provide Leading-Edge Technologies for Next-Generation Electric Vehicles

STMicroelectronics (“ST”) (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving
customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, announced its
collaboration with Arrival (NASDAQ: ARVL), the global technology company
creating electric vehicles (EVs) using its unique technologies, to provide
leading-edge semiconductor technologies and products for Arrival’s vehicles
including automotive microcontrollers and power and battery-management
devices.

Arrival has chosen ST as one of its key partners in bringing its connected
EVs to market. ST’s technology will provide Arrival’s customers with
future-proofed zero-emission commercial vehicles as part of an integrated
mobility ecosystem. Arrival has selected ST’s high-performance, secure
automotive microcontrollers for their modular ECU platform, as well as other
ST technologies including smart-power and battery-management devices for
efficient vehicle electrification.

Arrival believes its vehicles represent the next generation of EVs having
been developed from the ground up using a radical new method of design and
production. This vertically integrated approach using in-house developed
hardware, software and robotics enables production in decentralised
Microfactories. These Microfactories can be deployed around the world to
service demand and supercharge local communities by hiring local talent,
utilising local supply chains, and paying local taxes.

Arrival’s entire vehicle portfolio, including its Van, Bus, and recently
announced Car, which is being designed in partnership with Uber for
ride-hailing, will feature ST’s technologies. Arrival has already secured a
commitment to purchase from UPS for up to 10,000 electric vehicles, with the
option for 10,000 more, and will see trials of its vehicles starting later
this year.

“We have been working with Arrival since their early stages, and we are
proud of the journey accomplished together as they head towards production,”
said Michael Anfang, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Europe,
Middle East and Africa Region at STMicroelectronics. “ST is a broad-based
technology supplier for the mobility industry’s transition to electrified
and digitalized platforms. This collaboration with a leading new entrant on
the market is a testament to our ability to support various operating
models. Arrival’s vehicles using ST technology will be an additional step
towards our shared vision of cleaner mobility.”

“STMicroelectronics are producing some of the best technology on the market
today. At Arrival, choosing the most advanced technologies for our vehicles
is crucial to extending the life of our products, improving their value
whilst making them even more sustainable by extending their usable life,”
said Sergey Malygin, EVP of Technology at Arrival.
