Arrival, the automotive startup based out of both London and Charlotte, North Carolina, has unveiled their new Van – that’s simply the name, at least thus far. Aimed for production in summer 2022, the Van aims to “set a new standard for commercial vehicles” and is built from the ground up to be an EV.
A total of eight versions will be available, with a cargo volume of up to 14 m3, meanwhile payload can be as high as 1,975 kg. Battery packs will range from 67kWh to 133kWh in size, meaning a range of between 112 and 211 miles per charge. A smaller 44kWh pack might be an option too, as it was briefly mentioned in the press release.
The Arrival Van will be more than adequate when it comes to the tech front, with a 15.6” touchscreen interface inside. There’s also plenty of other tech features such as digital e-mirrors, Advanced Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist and much, much more.
The Van is expected to undergo public road trials this summer, with production (as stated above) aimed for summer 2022. No word on pricing at the moment. What do you guys think of the Arrival Van?
