Within the next decade, automakers will invest up to $300 billion in electric models, according to a recent tally from Reuters. These automakers are also spending billions more on autonomy to complement those investments. It could result in 21 million new electric cars, trucks and SUVs on the roads.

A lot of that activity is happening in China. But we’re also starting to see new investments in EV manufacturing in the U.S. For example, VW, Ford and Chevy are collectively putting over $2 billion into new or upgraded factories to produce EVs with autonomous functions.

So with all this money sloshing around, who’s doing what? And are any definitive leaders emerging?

On this week's Interchange podcast, we'll look at the competitive landscape for EV manufacturing.
