The concept of smart mobility is being expanded and redefined almost daily, and in 2018 Aptiv also continued to evolve, building on our long track record of industry leadership, innovation and execution, and expanding on the work we did in 2017 to redefine the company. Today, Aptiv holds a leading position as a technology company innovating at the intersection of disruptive trends in the automotive industry with a portfolio of technologies that make vehicles safer, greener and more connected, and enables the future of mobility.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of our 160,000 people, we made significant progress executing on the strategic initiatives that will enhance our competitive position and create value in 2019 and beyond.

"The future of mobility is rapidly changing, and at Aptiv, we are positioned to win."


In 2018, we booked a record $22 billion of new customer business. We increased the long-term competitiveness of our business model by continuing to reduce our overhead costs by $50 million, and reinvested those savings to help fund our investments for growth, including more than a 10 percent increase in software and systems engineers. We integrated our nuTonomy and Ottomatika acquisitions into Aptiv Autonomous Mobility, launched a new Automated Driving Technical Center in Las Vegas, and logged more than one million autonomous miles globally. We also enhanced the strength of our Engineered Components Group with the acquisitions of Winchester Interconnect and KUM, further establishing Aptiv as a market leader in connectivity solutions.

Looking ahead, I’ve never been more confident in our capabilities and excited about our future prospects. Aptiv is well positioned to continue capitalizing on the key global megatrends driving Automotive 2.0. Today’s vehicle data, signal and power distribution systems rely on decades-old technology that is at the breaking point as consumers demand more safe, green and connected vehicles. Our vision is to be the preferred partner for our customers, leveraging our unique position as the only provider of both the brain and the nervous system of the vehicle. As a result, we are able to conceive, specify and deliver hardware and software solutions to problems that many of our competitors do not even know exist.
