EX-DESIGNER BMW HAS CREATED AN ELECTRIC BUS IN THE STYLE OF "PUSH-PULL".

Electric startup Canoo presented the project of its first production electric car.

Electric startup Canoo presented the project of its first production electric car. And it's not a hatchback or a sedan or even a crossover. And it will be distributed in an unconventional way: the company is not going to sell its van.

Strangely enough, such an ascetic restrained design was developed by the person responsible for the appearance of the spectacular BMW i8 and i3 – Richard Kim, who after leaving BMW managed to work even in Faraday Future. According to him, the main task of the design was not to create a catchy, and the most spacious body. That's why Kim turned monocab - and not just tell where he's looking, and where feed.

And it is a sense of spaciousness should create such a huge area of glazing, and access to the cabin is provided by swing doors. In the rear part of the interior there is a U-shaped sofa and folding tables, and the two front chairs can be turned back, which adds to the electric bus "push-pull". Another discovery was the original design of the front panel.

It is, by the way, designed in such a way as to hide the steering wheel: it is argued that in the future Canoo will be completely unmanned. The van is driven by a 300-horsepower electric motor on the rear axle, and the power reserve thanks to the 80-kilowatt battery exceeds 400 km.

At the same time, even when the production of Sapoo begins, it will not be possible to buy it. The company plans to distribute its van exclusively by subscription, for an appropriate regular fee taking on all the costs of maintenance and insurance of the electric vehicle. The subscription price will include a certain amount of electricity.
