Tel Aviv based company, REE, manufactures automotive chassis. Similar to Atlis, REE’s chassis are modular, which means that any body can be used with a singular platform, based on specific customer needs. REE has indicated that the solution would allow the technology to be used for applications such as but not limited to last mile delivery, medium-duty transport, and robo-taxis.
The technology is quite impressive. As can be expected by the current age of automotive technology, the chassis is built to use the power of an electric motor rather than a combustion engine. What’s truly different in REE’s technology is that all of the critical components are located under the arch of the wheel. This tremendously maximizes space. This unique solution has gained interest by multiple companies such as Mitsubishi, and Mahindra.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Buzz around this kind of a modular chassis platform is constantly increasing. Multiple startups are focusing solely on creating these platforms for different applications. We have yet to see them widely used. With interest from large manufacturers, it is possible that we will see household-name car companies releasing cars based on these platforms quite soon.
