TOKYO — REE announced that its ultra-modular, advanced, corner module for electric and autonomous vehicles (EVs and AVs) will be displayed alongside a global OEM partner at the 46th Tokyo Motor Show, October 24-November 4. Details of the OEM partnership will be revealed on October 23, the first press day of the event. Visitors at this year’s exhibition will see product demos of REE’s corner module technology that is poised to upend automotive manufacturing.
REE brings unmatched modularity and efficiency to the electric-mobility landscape. The company has redesigned all drive vehicle components typically found on the chassis, including the motor, steering, suspension, drivetrain, data unit for AI preventative maintenance, brake, thermal systems, and electronics, and engineered them into a compact area of the wheel arches – known as corner modules.
REE’s corner-module technology not only brings greater efficiency to the mobility of people and goods, but it will enable mobility players to provide advanced services never before possible, reshaping the future of e-mobility. REE’s modular technology is designed from its core to support the diverse range of shapes, services and requirements the new e-mobility world brings.
“This exciting OEM collaboration is a major milestone for REE, we both share the goal to bring a more modular, innovative and efficient EV and AV solutions,” said Daniel Barel, Co-Founder and CEO of REE. “Through our onsite display at the Tokyo Motor Show with this strategic OEM partner, we’ll showcase the first real-world integration of our technology and provide visitors with deep understanding of what we believe to be the new standard for all EV development.”
The super-efficient space allowed by REE’s technology not only enables newfound vehicle design and configuration freedoms, it also allows for more batteries, safety technology, and storage to be integrated seamlessly. The reduction in weight means lower running costs and reduced environmental footprint. And because the technology is modular, maintenance is simplified and fast. REE’s solution works with any electric vehicle to bring new driving value and efficiency as well as reduced vehicle development and maintenance costs to OEMs and drivers alike.
