More and more American public institutions are going electric. Canoo has just won a contract with the USPS (US Postal Service or the US Postal Service). The start-up also signed with NASA a few months ago.
Canoo will equip the USPS
Canoo’s goal is to “ making electric vehicles accessible to all “. This young American company has developed futuristic shuttles equipped with innovative technologies. The modular platform on which these vehicles are based has been designed to maximize and modulate the passenger compartment. The company believes that its model is capable of supporting “ a wide range of professional applications ».

The proof: Canoo has already sold its electric shuttles to NASA and the USPS. Two entities whose needs are completely different. The models delivered to the American space agency are used to transport astronauts to the launch pad. The first three models have already been received by NASA. On board, four astronauts, support staff and specialized equipment travel to the rocket.
Six electric shuttles with right-hand drive
Canoo does not intend to stop at this nice communication stunt. The American start-up will deliver six units of sound Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle 190 (LD 190) to the USPS during the first quarter of 2024. Right-hand drive shuttles this time. This is indeed the case with many US Postal Service vehicles: this prevents postal workers from having to get out of the vehicle to deliver letters.
The USPS recently announced its intention to invest 40 billion dollars « to modernize and improve processing, transportation and delivery networks “. This logically includes the electrification of the fleet. A massive investment from which Canoo will benefit. Postal services around the world are going electric. In Switzerland, for example, the Post Office now has the largest electric fleet in the country.

Canoo says to himself “ honored to participate, as a supplier, in the electrification and modernization of the US Postal Service delivery vehicle fleet “. Tony Aquila, CEO of the company, specifies that “ our versatile platform makes it easy to configure a right-hand drive system while maintaining the desired body roll and driving stability ».
