The joint events highlight the features of the newly-designed EAVX and Morgan Olson body paired with REE’s fully-flat, modular P7 chassis and x-by-wire technology.
Key features of the Proxima include significantly improved aerodynamics, enhanced driver ergonomics, increased driver visibility and overall safety, enhanced manoeuvrability, and integrated technologies.
The Proxima also boasts fast repair times and reduced total costs of ownership due to rapid REEcorner swaps and 50-50 weight distribution of the body.
REEcorner is the Israeli automotive leader’s “revolutionary technology” that packs critical vehicle components (steering, braking, suspension, powertrain, and control) into a single compact module positioned between the chassis and the wheel, enabling the automaker to build the industry’s flattest EV platforms with more room for passengers, cargo and batteries.
Commemorating the live demonstrations, REE’s co-founder and CEO Daniel Barel said it will “convey the value and efficiencies REE’s x-by-wire technology can bring to fleets” as well as the power of pairing this revolutionary chassis with EAVX and Morgan Olson’s high-tech body.
“We’re so excited to get it on the road – and to help future-proof commercial fleets as they electrify,” added the chief of the NASDAQ-listed firm.
Morgan Olson and EAVX are business units of Texas-based transportation company JB Poindexter & Co. EAVX and the other individual business units of JBPCO are the integration bodybuilders of choice for chassis producers serving present and future EV and alternative fuel markets and advanced vehicle technology markets.
“Initial discussions have already been met by praise from customers large and small across a number of delivery segments,” said Mark Hope, COO of EAVX. “The customer evaluations this week are an exciting and important next step as we move closer to bringing the Proxima body to market.”
