TEL AVIV, Israel, Dec. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- REE Automotive Ltd. (NASDAQ: REE), today announced that it is exhibiting at CES on Jan. 5-8th in Las Vegas both in-person and virtually with an expanded and interactive digital experience. REE will display its functional ultra-modular EVs, electric platform prototypes and demos of its revolutionary REEcorner™ technology with full x-by-wire.
Daniel Barel, REE Co-Founder & CEO: "CES is a great opportunity to showcase the full breadth and depth of our revolutionary technology, capabilities and broad ecosystem of partners. We have so much to share with the industry and we've been waiting for a physical conference to meet in person at CES. We are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation as well as the safety measures the CTA organizers have implemented. Innovation is paramount and therefore we believe that the best path forward is to exhibit at CES with a reduced physical presence while providing complete virtual access to our exhibition and demos on the show floor and to the REE team."
REE sees a future in which EVs - ranging from commercial vans to passenger shuttles to autonomous robo-taxis and last mile delivery vehicles - will have REE technology at its core. The company has already laid the foundation to make this future possible by partnering with global leaders such as Hino Motors, Hitachi America, Magna International, JB Poindexter and others, creating one of the most comprehensive mobility ecosystems of its kind.
The REE display at the CES show includes:
REE-Hino Motors EV Platform & Business Alliance
The companies' joint exhibit at CES reinforces the strength of Hino's and REE's enduring partnership and shared effort to provide electric commercial mobility solutions geared to improve quality of life on a global scale. REE and Hino will showcase a full-size FlatFormer concept model, a fully-flat and modular EV platform that is geared to serve multiple target markets, from delivery companies to Mobility-as-a-Service. Companies are on track for hardware prototypes by FY2022.
The REEcorner™ demo highlights the performance of four functional REEcorners™ under real-world conditions, allowing visitors to experience the wide range of mission-specific vehicles that can be enabled by the REEcorners™ and EV platforms.
REEcorners™ boast x-by-wire technology allowing for independent wheel drive, steering and brake control and full EV and AV design flexibility. Through REE's partnership with American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM; NYSE: AXL), REE will show how REEcorners™ incorporate AAM's 3-in-1 propulsion system (Electric Drive Unit, Inverter and Gear Reducer) to deliver unparalleled power and control.
Leopard - Autonomous Delivery Concept Vehicle
