The REEcorner integrates all drivetrain, powertrain, suspension and steering components into the arch of the wheel, enabling the REEboard, a completely flat and modular electric chassis. The REE platform provides customers full design freedom to create the broadest range of EV and autonomous vehicles.
By incorporating Maxion’s vast wheel and chassis design and advanced materials experience into the system integration process, REE’s electric vehicle platform will weigh less and have more free space for alternative propulsion sources.
“Partnering with Maxion was the clear choice for us given its advanced technical capabilities and global presence” said Tali Miller Levin, Vice President, Corporate Development, REE. “We are delighted to add Maxion to our exclusive production network of top Tier 1 partners, which fortifies the market leadership of REE by leveraging Maxion’s existing wheel and chassis capabilities for our REEboard production demands.”
Dr. Saul Reichman added that collaborating with REE showcases Maxion’s mission to connect its current business with OEMs and advanced mobility players such as REE.
