According to foreign media reports, a representative of canoo Holding Co., Ltd., an electric vehicle manufacturing and design company, said recently that the company will launch a test prototype car in 2022 and prepare to put it into use. The company’s management revealed the details in a “fireside talk” at Cowen’s global transport and Sustainable Transport Conference this week. Ulrich Kranz, CEO of canno, said at the press conference that his company now has 300 employees and is currently testing car prototypes. Canoo plans to launch its so-called rear SUV, which will use the company’s proprietary “skateboard” chassis. Currently, the company is in the process of road testing its daily cars and plans to spend $250 million on the development of prototype cars. < / P > < p > according to the executive, canoo manages, builds and tests its 90000 square foot facility in Los Angeles. Kranz said the skateboard architecture will be the foundation of every canoo car, which will be unique because it provides unique advantages for its company’s vehicles. This architecture is highly modular and integrates all driving, steering, braking and suspension components into a single design, which in turn allows canoo to quickly launch new models and scale up production. < / P > < p > in addition, Kranz also announced that canoo would be the first company to introduce a real steer by wire system that would eliminate all mechanical connections between the steering wheels. This will allow canoo to create more space in the car and make it more flexible in vehicle design by allowing the company to adjust the steering wheel in different directions. In addition, Kranz stressed that the steering system will help the company in the automotive sector, as it will allow canoo to completely remove the steering wheel from the car. The structure of the skateboard also allows the company to modify its cabin design without significantly changing the critical design of the vehicle. It will also be able to withstand the impact of impact, it is understood that 70% of the impact load and energy will be absorbed by the skateboard, and the rest will be absorbed by the cabin. When it comes to battery capacity, according to American standards, canoo’s car has a battery capacity of 80 kWh and a range of 250 miles. < p > < p > canoo hopes to set the total target market coverage of electric vehicles at 75% through the ability to design different vehicle shape factors on one chassis. In addition, the company plans to launch a sharing platform for its older cars to emulate the plans of its rival Tesla. Canoo’s chief financial officer, Paul balciunus, said the company was shifting customers to newer models. < / P > < p > at the same time, canoo is also seeking to improve its technology and products for Hyundai, including testing and manufacturing real products. In addition to Hyundai, balcuinus said it had in-depth discussions with seven other companies about opportunities from product design to market deployment. < / P > < p > in elaborating canoo’s autopilot program, Kranz said that all of the company’s vehicle control modules can introduce level 3 and level 4 autopilot into the car. To this end, canoo cars have been designed to accommodate more sensors. < / P > < p > to date, canoo has built 32 test vehicles, of which 13 are in normal operation. In addition, it has carried out more than 50 physical collision tests according to the most stringent standards. These tests have verified the design of canoo’s carriage and skateboard. The company also plans to produce at least 100 canoos. < / P > < p > as for car pricing, balciunus said canoo is currently measuring consumer perceptions of price levels. In response, Alex marcinkowski, canoo’s strategic director, said the company’s subscription model would be consumer friendly.
