The products we create are at the heart of our sustainability goals. Aptiv is on a mission to make the world safer, greener and more connected by ushering in the electrified, software-defined vehicles of tomorrow. By leveraging our unique expertise with the brain and nervous system of the vehicle and continuously refining our processes, Aptiv works with OEMs to take a comprehensive approach to the vehicle solution stack, balancing performance and cost for our customers’ specific needs.
“The electrified, software-defined vehicles of tomorrow will be unrecognizable from the hardware-focused internal combustion engine cars and trucks we grew up with. OEMs will need to master both software and hardware in order to thrive. Aptiv’s ability to ‘look around the corner’ to understand the unique needs of the mobility industry helps OEMs offer the best solutions to consumers – today, and in the future.”
Enhanced supply chain resilience by developing a digital twin of our end-to-end supplier and customer network, providing Aptiv with the ability to “look around the corner” in real time to identify and proactively plan for supply chain risks. With this technology-led approach, Aptiv can achieve upstream visibility into the supply chain, anticipate disruptions, optimize costs and design products to reduce future supply chain risks.
Accelerated the trend toward electric vehicles, reaching $3.5 billion in high-voltage bookings during 2021 and producing high-voltage content for half of all EVs that have launched over the past few years. To meet the needs of future EVs, we began research on using recycled copper for high-voltage cables in some applications.
Developed analytics capabilities with the potential to reduce select operational costs in long-haul Class 8 trucks by up to 10% and deployed the capabilities across hundreds of fleet vehicles. Users praise our system for its ability to identify emissions systems failures, load their trucks to optimize fuel usage and weight, and avoid unnecessary trips to weigh stations.
