BlackRock, the world’s biggest money manager overseeing $7.8 trillion in assets, is joining the startup’s existing backers—auto manufacturers Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motors Corp. Those companies together invested a total of 100 million in January. p8o世界播

管理着7.8万亿美元资产的全球最大基金管理公司贝莱德(BlackRock)将加入这家初创公司的现有支持者--汽车制造商现代汽车公司(Hyundai Motor Co.)和起亚汽车公司(Kia Motors Corp.)。这两家公司1月份总共投资了1亿欧元。p8o世界播


BlackRock is investing at the same valuation as Hyundai and Kia because it had started its negotiation around the same time as the other two investors. However, the coronavirus pandemic slowed its talks, according to the person familiar with the matter. U.S. delivery company United Parcel Service Inc. is also an investor but the amount it has contributed couldn’t be learned. Together, the four investors will own an undisclosed minority stake, according to the person. p8o世界播

贝莱德的投资估值与现代和起亚相同,因为它与其他两家投资者几乎在同一时间开始了谈判。然而,据知情人士透露,冠状病毒大流行减缓了谈判的速度。美国快递公司联合包裹服务公司。也是一家投资者,但它贡献的金额无法获知。据这位知情人士透露,这四家投资者将合计拥有未披露的少数股权。p8o世界播


The fundraising is the latest in a wave of investment betting on the growth of electric vehicles as governments and consumers push the auto industry to cut carbon-dioxide emissions and the surging stock-market valuation of industry leader Tesla Inc. shows the potential of big profits from the new technology. p8o世界播

随着各国政府和消费者推动汽车业减少二氧化碳排放,以及行业领军企业特斯拉(Tesla Inc.)股市估值飙升,此次融资是押注电动汽车增长的投资浪潮中的最新一例。显示了这项新技术带来巨大利润的潜力。p8o世界播

BlackRock’s investment in Arrival comes after the New York-based asset managertopped up its holding in July of Rivian Automotive LLC, an electric pickup-truck startup backed in part by Ford. Rivian’s other backers include T. Rowe Price Group Inc., Soros Fund Management LLC and Fidelity Investments. The two investments also suggest BlackRock might be hedging its bets, underscoring the challenges of picking the ultimate winners. Like Arrival, Rivian makes delivery vans and those are slated for Amazon.com Inc.’s fleet. p8o世界播

贝莱德的投资是在这家总部位于纽约的资产管理公司在7月份增持Rivian Automotive LLC股份之后进行的,Rivian Automotive LLC是一家电动皮卡初创公司,部分得到了福特的支持。里维安的其他支持者包括T.Rowe Price Group Inc.、索罗斯基金管理公司(Soros Fund Management LLC)和富达投资(Fidelity Investments)。这两笔投资还表明,贝莱德可能在对冲押注,突显出挑选最终赢家的挑战。和“到达”一样,里维安也生产送货面包车,这些面包车将用于亚马逊公司(Amazon.com Inc.)的车队。p8o世界播


The risks of investing in the electric-vehicle sector were also highlighted by the controversy over the technology of U.S. electric-truck maker Nikola Corp. That company’s stock is down almost 70% since June amid allegations that the company’s founder, who resigned last month, mislead investors. He denies wrongdoing. p8o世界播

美国电动卡车制造商尼古拉公司(Nikola Corp.)的技术争议也突显了投资电动汽车行业的风险。自6月份以来,该公司股价已下跌近70%,原因是有指控称,该公司上月辞职的创始人误导了投资者。他否认有不当行为。p8o世界播


Founded in 2015, Arrival is based in London and is majority-owned by Denis Sverdlov, a former mobile-telecom executive. Arrival makes electric-powered city buses and commercial vans, claiming its vehicles can travel up to 300 miles without recharging and lower ownership costs by 50%, according to its website. p8o世界播

成立于2015年,总部设在伦敦,由前移动电信高管丹尼斯·斯维尔德洛夫(Denis Sverdlov)持有多数股权。据该公司网站介绍,该公司生产电动城市公交车和商用面包车,声称其车辆无需充电即可行驶300英里,并将拥有成本降低了50%。p8o世界播


It currently has an order to deliver 10,000 vans to UPS in the U.S. and Europe through 2024. The company is also running a trial of its electric vehicles with DHL Group, the Germany-based logistics company, and Royal Mail, the U.K. postal service. Money for the latest financing will help fund Arrival’s network of what are called micro factories in Europe and the U.S., including a new facility in South Carolina, which is part of its U.S. expansion plans. Former GM executive Mike Ableson is overseeing the U.S. operations. p8o世界播

该公司目前已接到订单,将在2024年之前向美国和欧洲的UPS交付1万辆面包车。该公司还与总部位于德国的物流公司DHL集团(DHL Group)和英国邮政服务公司皇家邮政(Royal Mail)合作,对其电动汽车进行了试验。最新融资的资金将帮助该公司在欧洲和美国建立所谓的微型工厂网络,包括在南卡罗来纳州的一家新工厂,这是该公司在美国扩张计划的一部分。通用汽车前高管迈克·阿布尔森(Mike Ableson)正在监督美国业务。p8o世界播


Currently, Arrival loses money as is typical for startups that are required to make major upfront investments to launch a business. However, it believes the lower investment cost of its smaller-size factories and its focus on the commercial electric-vehicle market will help it achieve profitability faster than its rivals. p8o世界播

目前,Armination是亏损的,这是要求进行重大前期投资才能启动业务的初创公司的典型做法。然而,该公司相信,其较小规模工厂的较低投资成本以及对商用电动汽车市场的专注,将有助于其比竞争对手更快地实现盈利。p8o世界播


At the same time, Arrival could seek additional financing and potentially a public listing to further fund its growth plan, investment bankers have said. One way to achieve this goal could be merging with a publicly traded special-purpose acquisition company, a route that has proven popular with other electric-vehicle startups such as Los Angeles-based Fisker Inc. p8o世界播

与此同时,投资银行家表示,Comment可能会寻求额外的融资,并可能寻求公开上市,以进一步为其增长计划提供资金。实现这一目标的一种方法可能是与一家上市的特殊目的收购公司合并,事实证明,这条路线在洛杉矶的Fisker Inc.等其他电动汽车初创企业中很受欢迎。p8o世界播


Arrival declined to comment on any potential future fundraising efforts. p8o世界播

到达拒绝就未来任何潜在的筹资努力发表评论。p8o世界播
