Israeli startup REE Automotive is rolling nearer to commercializing its revolutionary flat, modular electrical car (EV) chassis. REE is opening a completely robotic meeting line at its first Integration Middle at Coventry, UK.
REE’s Coventry Integration Middle will serve buyer demand in Europe with an preliminary give attention to REE’s EV platform for business electrical automobiles reminiscent of walk-in supply vans, buses and leisure automobiles.
The REEcorner platform packs essential car parts (steering, braking, suspension, powertrain and management) right into a single compact module positioned between the chassis and the wheel, enabling REE to construct the trade’s flattest EV platforms with extra room for passengers, cargo and batteries.
Headquartered in Herzliya, Israel, REE has an Engineering Middle within the UK, in addition to subsidiaries together with Japan and Germany. The 130,000-square-foot Coventry website, to be partially powered by photo voltaic power, has an anticipated capability of 10,000 car units this 12 months. One other REE Integration Middle in Austin, Texas, is anticipated to double international capability to twenty,000 car units in 2023.
The corporate is partnering with trade leaders together with Rockwell Automation and Professional Applied sciences for robotics and automatic meeting, with the primary meeting line anticipated to grow to be operational within the second half of the 12 months.
“This is a crucial milestone on our path to business manufacturing subsequent 12 months. The automated and linked capabilities at our Coventry website are a terrific basis for our international operations, as they are going to allow us to repeatedly fine-tune our meeting procedures and quickly deploy them to different websites,” mentioned Josh Tech, REE’s Chief Working Officer.
“Our cloud-based robotic manufacturing system would be the digital spine for our meeting traces and provides us the native functionality to handle our customer-specific manufacturing operations, whereas additionally permitting us to shortly share and scale finest practices internationally throughout all crops.”
REE’s patented know-how, along with its distinctive worth proposition, place it to interrupt new floor in e-Mobility. For extra data, click on right here.
