AVEVAI reveals new IONA electric van and truck

Singapore-based AVEVAI (the name stands for Autonomous Vehicle, Electric Vehicle, Artificial Intelligence) has launched a range of electric light commercial vehicles called IONA.

The IONA is built on a chassis developed in cooperation with Daimler and Chinese truck maker Foton, and is designed specifically for use by delivery and service businesses. The first two vehicles are a van and a truck, and they will be offered in both short and long wheel-base versions. They can handle a payload of up to 2,500 kg and as much as 18 square meters of cargo.

AVEVAI uses supercapacitor technology to increase range and improve battery life. Estimated range figures are 330 km for the IONA Van and 300 km for the IONA Truck.

The IONA’s batteries are designed to excel in extreme weather conditions, at temperatures as low as -40o C and as high as 70o C.

The company plans to offer a 22 kW Level 2 charging station that can fully charge the IONA Truck in two hours.

AVEVAI CEO Argun Boldkhet says the company was founded in response to the demand from small- and medium-sized businesses for low-cost, flexible EVs. “Tighter regulations on harmful emissions in urban areas are driving demand for e-LCVs. Our mission is to create affordable, functional and highly efficient products that meet the current needs of many businesses operating in the parcel, fast-moving consumer goods and last-minute delivery segments.”
