The transition to electric vehicles (EVs) and away from gas-powered vehicles is clearly underway both around the world and in the US. Many key questions remain however, including how quickly the transition will occur (especially in America) and how disruptive the transition to EVs will be to various segments of the auto industry — from suppliers, to dealers and OEMs. In particular, the shift to EVs is turning the automotive supply chain on its head as lower barriers of entry are bringing many new players — both big and small — to the table. In his keynote presentation, electric vehicle analyst and consultant Loren McDonald of EVAdoption will enlighten SMTA members on how and when the EV transition is likely to play out and outline both key challenges and opportunities for surface mount technology suppliers.
