The growing number of electric vehicle sales means parts manufacturers are going to have to adapt. 

On this episode of Transmission, Sebastian Blanco and Grace Sharkey explore how parts manufacturers will change to accommodate the EV market. The two discuss what this means for aftermarket suppliers, including the fact that EVs use about 40% fewer parts. 

Blanco and Sharkey welcome McKinsey and Co. partner Sebastian Kempf to explain how he sees parts makers changing strategies to stay competitive.
