EAVX and REE Automotive have joked that a full electric van will be available to consumers this summer.
The basis of the vehicle is REE’s P7 electric transport platform, which is designed for vehicles of 3-5 classes with payloads up to 8,800 pounds (3,991 kg). The platform also supports all-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and has a range of up to 370 miles (595 km). The bus will be the first vehicle to use this platform.
Teaser images from both companies depict a large, delivery-style van with a full-height driver’s door. The front of the van features a large windshield, four-wheel LED headlights, illuminated signs and a false geometric grid. We can also see a clear front bumper with bright red hinges, as well as a set of simple black wheels with red center caps.

EAVX and REE Automotive will be evaluating an electric van throughout Detroit this summer. The assessment is limited to pipe consumers in the retail, delivery and logistics segments who can use the vehicle in their fleets.
John Poindexter, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of JB Poindexter & Co., said: “This is a testament to EAVX’s proposal to accelerate the electrification of commercial vehicles for unprecedented and existing and new customers.” “By partnering with REE for innovative technology and modular electric chassis, REEcorner E EAVX can take advantage of JBPCO’s proven history of creating excellent trucks and commercial vehicle housings and accessories for designing and manufacturing commercial electric fleets of all sizes and markets.”
EAVX is a subsidiary of JB Poindexter & Co., a private company that manages Morgan Truck Body, Morgan Olson, Reading Truck Group and others. REE Automotive is based in NASDAQ and is an Israeli manufacturer of EV and autonomous vehicle platforms.
In addition to making fun of its electric van with EAVX, REE Automotive has announced that it will establish a European Integration Center in Coventry, UK, as well as an Integration Center in Austin, Texas.
