California-based automotive manufacturer, Canoo, is going to the moon and will now also be aiding in battle. The US Army has awarded Canoo with the chance to supply its electric vehicle platform for analysis and demonstration. Tony Aquila, Canoo’s CEO, believes that this is another opportunity to showcase the capabilities of Canoo’s versatile platform.

The platform allows for multi-purpose applications, some of which we have recently seen as a military vehicle, space vehicle, and passenger pick-up truck. It’s based on a skateboard-like chassis, which allows for flexibility on design of the body depending on the customers’ requirements.

Auto Trendy’s take:

Canoo is truly proving the reliability and flexibility of its platform. Not only is it reliable enough to be used in military and space-grade applications, but it is also flexible enough to be used in all these unique applications. It would be interesting to see in what specific applications the military will end up using this platform.
