EAVX, a subsidiary of JB Poindexter & Co and REE Automotive, an automotive technology provider of electric vehicle platforms, has jointly announced the companies’ new fully electric walk-in van (WIV) prototype will begin customer evaluation this summer.
Evaluations of the new electric walk-in van will take place over several weeks in the Detroit metropolitan area. The pre-booked event will allow pipeline customers across retail, delivery and logistics segments to experience the vehicle, its ground breaking technology, and secure production capacity on the path for 2023 deliveries.
The walk-in van body is a new, ground up development and will be showcased for the first time on the REE P7 platform, which was unveiled in January 2022. The platform is intended to power class 3-5 vehicles with payloads up to 8,800 pounds and range of 370 miles, along with all-wheel steering, all-wheel drive, and autonomous-ready capabilities. The vehicle is designed to provide unique user benefits, efficiencies, and flexibility that can be scaled across further applications and classes with the modularity and design freedom enabled by REEcorner technology.
