Canoo, the one-of-a-kind electric minivan


On more than one occasion we have told you about Canoo, an American project that aims to give life to a line of electric vehicles with absolutely unique appearance and characteristics: in the video we are bringing you today we can admire the detail the first declination of this new platform, made with a minivan body large enough to accommodate 7 passengers on board - at the wheel of the Canoo we have Gary Gumushian of Canoo, while interviewed by Andre Smirnov of the Youtube channel The Fast Lane EV.

This interesting vehicle designed and built by Canoo offers absolutely unique features, starting from the large amount of glass surfaces it offers: and we're not just talking about large windows or a panoramic roof, Canoo has focused in the design of a windshield capable of maximizing viewing angles and minimizing obstructions to vision, so much so that it integrates a glass front panel that the company calls Street View Glass  which allows those sitting in front to see the asphalt a few cm in front of the car, which normally doesn't happen.

In addition to this interesting detail, the Canoo's windscreen is divided into various sections delimited by the bodywork pillars, but the rest is completely transparent so as to be able to look around at practically 360°. The internal set-up is minimalist, with a steering column that does not require a steering column thanks to the by wire technology, so as to also reduce the internal dimensions and leave plenty of room for the legs of those sitting in front.

How anticipated, Canoo aims to decline this platform in various forms, starting from the model shown in this video; a similar version dedicated to the commercial sector will follow (in this sense Canoo has already met with great success, with over 17,000 orders from transport and logistics companies), a pick-up version and a 5-seater sedan version.

For the moment, however, Canoo will focus on this model which, barring further difficulties, should go into production by the end of the year.
