The Motor City is the Perfect Place to Create Disruption in the Electric Off-Road Vehicle Market


The Electric off-road vehicle market projection should exceed USD 400 million by 2032, driven by the growing popularity of outdoor recreational activities, particularly in North America. The all-terrain vehicle (ATV) segment growth projections trend at 15% CAGR from 2023 to 2032, fueled by the increasing number of ATV clubs worldwide. The sports electric off-road vehicle market, previously valued at USD 30 million in 2022, is expected to see significant growth due to the rising number of sports activities globally.

Due to this rapidly evolving landscape of advanced manufacturing and mobility, the disruption in the electric off-road vehicle market is palpable. With the advent of 5G, augmented technology, and a globally interconnected workforce, new technologies that are nothing short of astonishing are emerging. This growth is particularly true in Detroit, a city with a rich history in manufacturing and now a hotbed for innovation. According to a recent report, Detroit added more than 1,000 tech jobs in the metro area in 2022.

What does this mean for the future of manufacturing in Detroit? DisruptED, the podcast dedicated to exploring the disruption in advanced manufacturing and mobility, explored the ATV trend.
