UK based electric vehicle company
After agreeing to build 10,000 electric delivery vans for UPS last year, UK startup Arrival has today revealed specs and images for its latest all-electric van, ahead of trials on public roads "with key customers" this (northern) summer.
COVID-19 has put the future of public transportation in question. Since Arrival is still in the early stages of fleshing out its electric transportation ecosystem, it previews a more flexible breed of electric bus to help answer the question.
Back in 2018, UPS revealed it was working with UK startup Arrival to develop bespoke electric delivery vehicles for small trials. The two are now taking things up a notch, today announcing a new order of 10,000 purpose-built electric vans.
UK automotive startup Arrival has been developing its own electric vehicles since 2015 and just has received a high profile boost, with Hyundai and Kia announcing a €100 million (US$110 million) investment aimed at ushering in the era of electric transportation.
