Everrati Automotive Limited is taking the next step in its global market expansion with the establishment of operations in the United States. Alongside this, the Oxfordshire-based company has appointed two key new leadership team members.
Everrati are a leading technology company specialising in redefining and futureproofing automotive icons through the integration of the very latest electric vehicle (EV) powertrains.
The electric car convertor’s current line-up of models includes a Porsche 911 (964) Coupe, Targa, Cabriolet in Pure, Signature and Gulf Signature Editions. Plus, they have a Land Rover Series IIA, a GT40 in partnership with Superformance and Mercedes-Benz W113 SL Pagoda.
With surging US customer demand, Everrati will soon have a physical presence in North America to quickly bring its innovative products to a major new market. This strategic expansion follows the commencement of revenue from the US, with many recent sales now originating from the territory.
The announcement sees Everrati build on its existing connection with the US. Back in July, Everrati launched its partnership with Superformance, who are a leading US-based manufacturer of 1960s-era continuation component sports cars, with the first new model being an electrified version of the American legend the GT40.
To help develop Everrati’s global presence, two new appointments have been made to the company’s senior leadership team. Everrati has announced the appointment of Amit Chandarana as its US-based Strategic Advisor.
With over 18 years of automotive sales, marketing and operational experience, Chandarana has fronted marketing operations for a range of leading automotive dealership platforms and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), such as Roadster, Fiat Chrysler and Toyota.
Currently, vice president and head of commercial at Gettacar in the US, Chandarana will support the launch of Everrati’s US operations, building the company’s sales and marketing platforms and client-facing presence in the region.
David Warren, sports marketing veteran of over 30 years, also joins the Everrati leadership team as a board advisor. With a decorated history in global sport, as the current commercial director of Formula E, Warren has been instrumental in the sport’s growth by attracting brands and establishing major strategic partnerships.
Warren has previously held senior positions at Canon, Benneton F1 and All Sport. With his deep-rooted connections and business oversight, he will play a crucial role in developing Everrati’s future brand partnerships, each with sustainability at its core.
Justin Lunny, Everrati Automotive Limited CEO and founder, said: “With surging demand from US customers, we are rapidly establishing new operations in North America. Our current product portfolio continues to attract universal acclaim from the world’s media and our discerning customers.
“I am delighted to announce that David and Amit are joining our leadership team. With their expertise, we are busy putting plans in place to bring Everrati vehicles to the US first and then to other new markets. Watch this space.”
David Warren, Everrati Automotive Limited board advisor, said: “Everrati’s products are world-class in their execution, taking some of the most desirable cars ever made and restoring them to meet 21st-century demands with cutting-edge EV technology. I have no doubt that this is a journey many brands will seek to be a part of.”
Amit Chandarana, Everrati Automotive Limited strategic advisor, said: “Everrati's brand has become synonymous with electrifying icons in Europe and it’s clear with the high level of interest that North America will be a heavily subscribed region.
A presence in the US will allow Everrati to meet the demand of consumers who want to preserve and excite their vehicles in a sustainable manner. The investor community in the US has already shown a keen interest in meeting this demand, the next round of funding will accelerate our North American operations and presence.”
