Another coup for EV manufacturer Canoo.
The Oklahoma City EV maker announced the U.S. Postal Service will purchase six of the battery-electric Canoo vehicles and will take delivery of the right-hand drive versions of the LDV 190 sometime in the first quarter of this year.
“Our mission is to make working vehicles for working people and this is a wonderful opportunity to connect our technology with the postal service’s important mission to bring mail and packages to people across the country,” said Chris Moore, the vice president of Canoo.
Canoo recently took part as one of the potential suppliers in the groundbreaking electrification and modernization of the U.S. Postal Service’s delivery fleet as announced by the USPS on January 22, 2024. This effort is part of the USPS’s $40 billion investment strategy to upgrade and improve the organization’s processing, transportation, and delivery networks.
The vehicles for USPS will leverage Canoo’s patented technologies to deliver enhanced functionality, safety, and ergonomics.
“The multi-purpose platform with steer-by-wire technology and a unique low-profile suspension system allows for a readily configurable right-hand drive system while maintaining desired roll and ride stability,” said Tony Aquila, Investor, Executive Chairman, and CEO of Canoo.
