In the new REE, all-wheel drive, which in a standard vehicle is under the hood, has been incorporated into the wheels of the vehicle: the motor, steering, suspension, drivetrain, sensors, brakes, thermal systems, and electronics.  The result is that the REE’s vehicle is creating a flat platform. It is more efficient and has a wider range than any other vehicle while allowing more efficient cargo or passenger transport.

Leading international carmakers including Mitsubishi Corporation, Musashi Seimitsu Industry, Tenneco, American Axle, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and NSK are already collaborating with REE.
