The 2022 SEMA Show will feature an expanded SEMA Electrified section, with the specialised North Hall exhibit area to feature the latest advancements in electric vehicle (EV) technology.
“The EV aftermarket is evolving quickly and continues to change; we’re curating a unique collection of the latest products related to electric vehicles and the aftermarket,” said Tom Gattuso, SEMA Vice President of Events. “SEMA Electrified will help businesses see the latest trends and understand how the EV market has evolved. Visitors will gain an understanding of the advancements and opportunities for the future.”
SEMA said although alternative powertrains represent just one per cent of the 250 million cars, SUVs, and light-duty trucks in operation on American roads, sales and interest in EVs are increasing rapidly. According to recent SEMA market research, vehicle electrification offers several areas of opportunity for the aftermarket, including the development of parts and products to aid the conversion of older internal-combustion vehicles; building and modifying new project, racing and other purpose-built vehicles; and accessorising new OEM electric offerings.
While the dedicated SEMA Electrified section will highlight possibilities in the electric market, EV projects and products will be displayed throughout the SEMA Show.
