REE Automotive (REE), a developer of electric vehicle platforms for e-Mobility, demonstrates three prototypes of its next-generation EV platforms for future delivery vehicles. Each fully operational prototype features REE’s modular and flexible platform architecture, with the REEcorner which powers full X-by-Wire technology for steering, braking and drive, and integrates all drivetrain, powertrain, suspension and steering components into the arch of the wheel. In addition, the REEboard – which enables the EV platform to be completely flat – offers customers the freedom to place any shape or size of body design on top.
In the video REE showcases three of its modular EV platforms on track, demonstrating X-by-Wire technology in P1, P2 and P4 platforms. The P1 platform of up to 1.3-ton GVW is geared for LSV last-mile inner-city delivery applications. The P2 platform scales up to 2.5-tons GVW and is designed to transport passengers and cargo. TheP4 platform offers up to 4.5-tons GVW and is built for the North American market delivery segment.
In August 2020, REE signed a memorandum of understanding with global OEM Mahindra to establish a strategic collaboration for the development and production of an initial capacity of up to 250,000 electric vehicles aimed at the commercial market. This follows on from partnerships REE had already established with multinationals such as AAM, KYB, Musashi, NSK and Mitsubishi Corporation.
