Canoo’s versatile electric van looks like it’s built in Lego

Must read


The maximum payload depends on the size of the battery and three options will be available initially. In the MPDV1, the 40 kWh pack should give you a range of 130 miles. The 60 kWh battery will provide a range of 190 miles, according to Canoo, and you should be able to drive up to 230 miles on a single charge of the 80 kWh version. If you were to go for the larger van, those distances would be 30 to 40 miles lower. The van will also have level two range as part of its driver assistance systems.

What makes the MPDV particularly interesting, however, is its design. His Cybertruck style flat signs give the impression that Canoo picked it up at some point in the future (2077, maybe). As Autoblog points out that the compact front end could help make parking a breeze.

A promo video presents a number of neat interior design ideas that suggest the MPDV could be very useful as a work vehicle. The driver’s side door, for example, has power outlets, cup holders and phones as well as storage, while there should be plenty of room to wander around given the interior height of the van’s. just under 6.5 feet.

There are also sliding ramps, storage locker options, a 240-volt outlet for power tools, and even a collapsible cart. Owners could choose to have an opening on one side and folding tables on the other, so this could be a viable way to get a food truck business off the ground. You can even opt for an adventure vehicle setup.
