Ree Automotive has just unveiled the Leopard, an electric vehicle with skateboard design for autonomous last-mile delivery. The product will be showcased at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January next year.

The Leopard uses state-of-the-art technology and is designed to support various configurations to fit the varying needs of customers. Measuring between 9.5-11.5 feet in length and 4.5-7 feet in height, the vehicle can reach up to 60 miles per hour and carry a payload of 1650 pounds.

According to Daniel Barel, Co-founder & CEO of Ree, “this concept showcases just one design application of our groundbreaking technology, one that answers the strategically crucial question of how to carry out autonomous, zero-emissions last-mile deliveries.” 

The REEcorner solution enables the Leopard to autonomously control each part of the vehicle using x-by-wire technology. This is done by incorporating all the key components such as steering, braking and suspension into a single module found between the chassis and the wheel. 

“Autonomous and electric vehicles ‘Powered by Ree’ offer unsurpassed operational efficiency and the lowest cost of ownership combined with full flexibility when it comes to integrating top hats in virtually any size, shape or form,” said Barel proudly.
