Dr Andy Palmer joins ICE-to-EV company Everrati Automotive

Everrati Automotive, the Oxfordshire engineering firm specialising in the redefining and futureproofing of automotive icons through the integration of cutting-edge electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, today announced the appointment of Dr Andy Palmer as Board Advisor.

Over a career spanning four decades, Dr Andy Palmer is one of the automotive industry’s most influential executives, leading transformational change at Aston Martin and Nissan, where he was formerly CEO and COO respectively. He has also been at the forefront of the zero-emission transition, credited with pioneering ground-breaking technologies at Nissan, including the Leaf electric car. The former vice-chairman and CEO of Switch Mobility currently holds multiple Chairman roles at leading EV-focused businesses, including battery makers InoBat and Ionetic, and is CEO of charging infrastructure provider Pod Point.

In his new position as Board Advisor, Dr Andy Palmer will work with Everrati CEO and founder, Justin Lunny, to further scale the two sides of Everrati’s business: its B2C luxury product range and its B2B provision of cutting-edge e-powertrains for low-volume automotive applications.

Everrati states that it is witnessing "surging demand from the luxury sector for its range of electrified icons, particularly across the US and the Middle East, for upcycled, futureproofed bespoke vehicles". At the same time, Everrati’s B2B operations are also rapidly expanding, the company supporting multiple specialist and luxury low-volume manufacturers in the transition from ICE to zero-emission, through the design, development and integration of proprietary electrification technology via its Advanced Technologies division. 

Everrati has also expanded its senior leadership team with the appointment of former automotive finance exec Rhodri Darch, who joins as Managing Director, former Rolls-Royce, BMW and luxury market exec Alex Langhein, who joins as Sales and Marketing Director and former Ford, JLR and Ricardo engineer Tony Fong, who joins as Head of Engineering.

Everrati founder and CEO, Justin Lunny, commented: “I am delighted to announce Dr Andy Palmer as our new Board Advisor. He is one of the world’s leading automotive industry players, an expert engineer who has played transformational roles and been at the forefront of electrification. Everrati is experiencing enormous growth opportunities. His expertise and guidance, supported by our strengthened team, will be central to unlocking further B2C and B2B potential across our business.”  

Dr Andy Palmer said: “I am very pleased to be joining Justin and the team at Everrati. The company has very quickly established an enviable reputation through the development and integration of a world-class proprietary electric powertrain, which is combined with truly OEM-grade standards. Converting existing ICE vehicles to EV has enormous potential, and I am looking forward to helping the team realise this, both through the scaling up of global production of the zero emission icons, and the expansion of Everrati’s B2B operations, utilising the company’s technology to support niche vehicle makers as they make the transition to EV.”

Past forward

Everrati claims that demand for its products is surging across the globe, from Europe to North America and Canada. Its advanced bespoke OEM-grade electric powertrain technology transforms and preserves icons of automotive engineering and design, into rolling pieces of art that are not only sustainable luxury models fit for the 21st century but also can be enjoyed for multiple generations. 

The development of Everrati’s leading powertrain technology is supported by a robust network of extremely experienced and best-in-class partners and suppliers to deliver OEM-grade products, processes, and quality. Its growing portfolio of redefined automotive icons now includes electric versions of the Porsche 911 (964) Coupe, Targa, Cabriolet, ST-inspired G-Series, Range Rover Classic, Land Rover Defender, Land Rover Series, GT40, and Mercedes-Benz W113 SL Pagoda.

Everrati’s commercial B2B business, Everrati Advanced Technologies, operating as ‘Powered by Everrati’, draws on Everrati’s unique combination of engineering experience; amassed from more than 50 years of collective expertise working within automotive OEMs. Utilising proven Everrati automotive EV propulsion system platforms as a starting point, Everrati Advanced Technologies provides consultation on a suite of electrification solutions for commercial clients, from initial concept, analysis services and feasibility study to complete turnkey EV powertrain provision. In addition, the business provides software and IP development for bespoke customer requirements.
