REE unveils autonomous concept vehicle based on modular EV platform

REE Automotive Ltd has revealed its concept for an autonomous concept vehicle based on a brand new ultra-modular EV platform design.

The full-scale concept is geared for customers including last-mile autonomous and electric delivery companies, delivery fleet operators, e-retailers and technology companies seeking to build fully autonomous solutions.

The Leopard concept vehicle is based on REE’s modular EV platform, designed to support a wide variety of mission specific vehicles and the company says the design will allow customers to build autonomous and electric vehicle fleets according to their exact specifications with unmatched interior space for transporting passengers and cargo.

It has also been designed to carry significantly more cargo due to REE’s low, flat floor, with a maximum payload of 750kg, meaning improved environmental impact of fewer trips in fewer vehicles.

Daniel Barel, REE co-founder and CEO, said: “This concept showcases just one design application of our ground-breaking technology, one that answers the strategically crucial question of how to carry out autonomous, zero-emissions last mile deliveries, which has huge growth potential.

“Autonomous and electric vehicles ‘Powered by REE’ offer unsurpassed operational efficiency and the lowest total cost of ownership combined with full flexibility when it comes to integrating top hats in virtually any size, shape or form. We’re here to make the shift to a carbon neutral future a reality faster and at scale.”

The Leopard is to be showcased at REE booth in CES, Las Vegas, in January 2022.
