Frost & Sullivan awards REE Automotive 2021 Global EV Platform

Based on its recent analysis of the global automotive EV platform market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes REE Automotive Ltd. with the 2021 Global EV Platform Company of the Year Award.

REEcorner™ technology packs critical vehicle components (e.g. steering, braking, suspension, powertrain and control) into a single compact module located between the chassis and the wheel, thus enabling fully-flat EV platforms. REE’s modular EV platforms are designed to offer enhanced payload capacity by providing more room for carrying passengers, cargo and batteries and enhanced body design flexibility and autonomous capability.  REE’s EV platforms are built to provide significant value to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) delivery and logistic companies, e-commerce retailers, Mobility-as-a-Service and new mobility players, with the goal of allowing them to introduce new EV models rapidly and at lower costs.

“Powered by x-by-wire technology, REE’s corner module moves the vehicle’s core functions into a compact area between the chassis and the wheel. It ensures improved steering, braking, suspension, and drive capability, with front, rear, and all-wheel drive options and comprehensive drive-by-wire, brake-by-wire, and steer-by-wire technology,” said Benny Daniel, vice president at Frost & Sullivan.

REE’s EV platforms based on the REEcorner technology are designed to enable greater vehicle design flexibility, lower maintenance costs, capability upgrades via over-the-air technology, and interoperability with sophisticated driver aid systems amongst other benefits. Moreover, the company is well-positioned to support sustainability initiatives with platforms geared to meet zero-emissions requirements.

The REE corner module design can power modular EVs with high load capacity including flexible battery packaging and sizing for transporting passengers and cargo. These benefits are geared to afford a low total cost of ownership, and shorter development time frames than traditional EV skateboard chassis designs. The platform’s scalability makes it ideal for an extensive range of EV deployments, including commercial vehicles, mobility-as-a-service providers and last-mile and logistics companies.

“REE’s disruptive technology is adaptable to a spectrum of target markets and applications. Its REE corner technology is designed to allow OEMs to create customized EV platforms while still reducing the time-to-market of new models,” noted Norazah Bachok, Best Practices research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Overall, REE’s delivery of advanced e-mobility services to customers through its modular and unique technology solidifies its leadership position within the corner modules industry.”
