EAVX, Morgan Olson and REE Automotive (Nasdaq: REE) recently hosted live demonstrations and customer evaluations for the Proxima Powered by REE, a new drive-by-wire walk-in step van, which features a body designed by EAVX and Morgan Olson, paired with REE’s flat, modular P7 chassis and x-by-wire technology.
“These events are an opportunity for delivery companies and fleet managers to see firsthand how Proxima paired with the REE chassis can answer the call for electrification options that are quick, efficient and offer a low total cost of ownership,” said Daniel Barel, co-founder and CEO of REE. “These live demonstrations will convey the value and efficiencies REE’s x-by-wire technology can bring to fleets, as well as the power of pairing this revolutionary chassis with EAVX and Morgan Olson’s high-tech body.”
The vehicle’s drive-, steer-, and brake-by-wire functionality eliminates mechanical connections, which reduces underfloor turbulence, and enables a low and flat load floor. A smart digital infrastructure by EAVX enables all connected systems throughout the vehicle to exchange information and aid the driver. Visibility improvements are designed to enhance driver and pedestrian safety.
“Initial discussions have already been met by praise from customers large and small across a number of delivery segments,” said Mark Hope, COO of EAVX. “The customer evaluations are an important next step as we move closer to bringing the Proxima body to market.”
