Carota Joins Hands with NTT DATA, Enhancing Electric Vehicle International Market Competitiveness with Oracle NetSuite
With the advent of the era of software-defined cars, business opportunities for electric vehicles continue to heat up, and the automotive industry is at a historic moment of transformation. In response to this trend, NTT DATA and Carota have recently launched strategic cooperation. Firstly, NTT DATA will assist in the introduction of Oracle NetSuite system to establish the Carota group's global logistics platform. Secondly, aiming to expand its global presence, Carota will leverage NTT Group's global network and deep roots in the automotive industry, to penetrate into the IoV ecosystem of Japanese automakers.

Carota was established in 2018 and is well-known in the industry for its world-leading OTA (Over-The-Air) upgrade technology. The number of vehicles equipped with Carota OTA has exceeded 2.5 million. Carota's success is not only due to the high yield of 99.95% of OTA products, but its solutions are also in line with the global trend of net-zero emissions and energy efficiency. According to AlixPartners' 2023 Global Automotive Outlook report, the Chinese market is rapidly emerging as a major driving force in the global automotive industry. Carota has achieved a market share of more than 10% in China. After establishing a foothold in the Chinese electric vehicle market, it plans to expand its business to markets such as Germany, Southeast Asia, Japan, South Korea, and the United States.
Carota CEO Paul Wu said that gaining customer recognition in the Chinese market, where competition for electric vehicles is the most fierce in the world, and continuing to strengthen product research and development capabilities is the foundation and the most important step for Carota to expand its global presence. According to a survey by a market research agency, the proportion of electric vehicles in China's new car sales will reach about 30% by 2023. With the popularity and high penetration rate of electric vehicles around the world, Carota uses its core technology to cater to this trend and hopes to become an indispensable business partner for Japanese automakers in the development of electric vehicles through cooperation with NTT DATA.
