Canoo's $33,000 electric delivery van

I want to get more specs on this van but so far I really like what I see. It seems to have everything I require in a cargo van.
From hauling sometimes large equipment to an easily converted camper, without sacrificing that needed space for hauling around equipment, wood, tools,  whatever as a work vehicle.
Apparently it is only going in to production in '22 but if it lives up to expectations and includes increased range, it is the one I want and need. it has a lot of versatility.

Wow I love this van and the range options...and the (starting) price. I like it a lot.
Hey Murdoch, I think this is the one and I can hardly wait. Suits my needs perfectly.



Canoo's $33,000 electric delivery van aims for efficiency and ownership costs



Canoo on Thursday unveiled its second electric vehicle—a delivery van. It will enter limited production in 2022, followed by full-scale production in 2023, with a starting price of $33,000, the startup said in a press release.

The van uses the same "skateboard" platform as the people carrier Canoo unveiled late last year. The platform was always meant to support multiple body styles, with Canoo teasing a delivery van as far back as 2018, then again earlier this year.

Canoo believes the packaging efficiencies of an electric powertrain, as well as lower operating costs compared to gasoline or diesel vans, will make its delivery vehicle attractive to commercial fleets. Similar thinking has led fellow startups Rivian and Arrival, as well as established automakers like Ford and Mercedes-Benz, to develop electric vans.

Similar to internal-combustion vans, Canoo will offer low-roof and high-roof versions of its EV, dubbed MPDV1 and MPDV2, respectively. A third, larger, version called MPDV3 is on the way as well. It will also offer 40-kilowatt-hour, 60-kwh, and 80-kwh battery packs, with EPA-estimated range of 130 miles, 190 miles, and 230 miles, respectively, for the MPDV1 version.

Re: Canoo's $33,000 electric delivery van

just saw this.  I hope you're able to get it.  I haven't had time to study the company and don't know where they are in the critical area of what I call "execution" by which I just mean how close are they to actually making and actually selling what they claim they are going to do.

I do think they are one of the SPAC acquisition listings, as can be seen here:

Re: Canoo's $33,000 electric delivery van

Thanks for the video.  I haven't had much time to pay attention to some of these, the announcements and companies are coming fast and furious in 2021.  The goal, as I've said to colleagues, is to not get run over by all the things happening this year.

I am only a few minutes into this, but it appears that Rich Benoit is going to make some sort of van, I'm not sure yet if it will be an EV.
