REE Leopard Is A Self-Driving Shuttle Intended For Delivery Fleets

The Leopard is the latest concept vehicle by Israeli automotive tech startup REE. As a last-mile delivery solution, the shuttle is built on the modular REEboard EV platform.

With its bulky design, wide glass surfaces, and sophisticated graphics, the Leopard resembles a little bus. It has a tiny footprint of 2.5 m2 (26.6 cubic feet), a length of 3.4 m (133.9 inches), and a narrow width of 1.4 m (55.2 inches), allowing for better maneuverability on city streets.

REE

The 50-kWh battery is situated on the floor, and an electric motor driving the rear wheels enables a max speed of 97 km/h (60 mph). The ability to transport up to 5,097 lt (180 cubic feet) of cargo due to a low and flat base is more crucial for the vehicle's duty.

It also has a 2-tonne gross vehicle weight, which appears to be adequate for last-mile delivery. The machine is also intended to have a low total cost of ownership, making it perfect for fleet use. CES 2022 will include a full-scale model of the REE Leopard.

For drive, steer, and braking control, the platform uses X-by-wire REEcorner technology. Its versatility allows it to handle vehicles ranging in length from 2.9 to 3.5 meters (114 to 138 inches), width from 1.2 to 1.8 meters (46.8 to 70.8 inches), and height from 1.4 to 2.2 meters (55.2 to 86.4 inches), with a cargo capacity of up to 7,500 liters (265 cubic feet).

Battery capacities of up to 60 kWh are supported, as well as electric motors of up to 134 horsepower (100 kW / 136 PS) for a top speed of up to 160 km/h (100 mph). REE claims that its technology enables companies to create fleets of self-driving electric vehicles to transport passengers and cargo.

REE

REE is based in Herzliya, Israel, and has engineering centers in the United Kingdom as well as subsidiaries around the world. It announced intentions to open its US headquarters in Austin, Texas, in July, with production beginning in 2023. A month later, the firm stated that the UK government would support its REEcorner innovation with £12.5 million ($17 million).
