REE Automotive Ltd., from Israel, an e-mobility company, announced in the middle of the week that it has started testing the new P7 platform for commercial delivery vehicles and walk-in vans. The P7 platform already has a specific purpose in mind, having been developed based on the functional and operational specifications of one of the world’s largest suppliers.

As the start-up states, the electric P7 platform is able to load up to 35% more packages than comparable commercial vehicles and can carry up to 30 passengers comfortably. This means that the company’s own electric platform is ideal for e-vehicles, which are used in target markets such as delivery and logistics fleets, transport companies, school buses and mobility providers. As expected, the platform specialist also relies on the well-known REEcorner and X-by-Wire technology for this platform. Which allows each wheel to move independently, increasing driving dynamics and safety, and enabling all-wheel steering, drive and braking.

Comparable to its own platform for passenger cars, the modular platform P7 was also developed in order to radically simplify the development times for electric commercial vehicle models. It has been optimized for fleet owners who want to create their own commercial vehicle brand, unique design and market differentiation through REE configuration and lowest TCO thanks to Battery-as-a-Service, Data-as-a-Service and fast REEcorner changeover. On the way to production, Ree has named the main suppliers American Axle & Manufacturing (AAM) for the delivery of high-performance electric drives and Brembo for the modification and delivery of the brake system for the delivery of high-performance electric drives and brake system.

“The P7 platform is of paramount importance for the design, safety and functionality of commercial vehicles. True to our vision, provide complete modularity and versatility, this platform can be configured in different sizes and optimized for a specific application and a specific application “- Daniel Barel, co-founder and CEO of REE AUTOMOTIVE

The basic similarities of innovative P7 architecture are designed to provide significant development synergies for further future Recorner models across vehicle classes. This architectural approach offers both cost and time advantages in the development process as well as further production efficiencies through the resulting economies of scale.

REE has already named the first technical details of which electric and autonomous vehicles that can be built on the P7 platform. There is talk of ranges of up to 595 kilometers and a top speed of around 130 km/h. The platform should have a permissible total weight of up to 7.reach 500 kilograms. The platform shown is 7.6 m long and 2.4 m wide.
