Electric Assisted Vehicles (EAV) says development of its Urban Lightweight Commercial Vehicles will move to the next level with the signing of a new agreement with a leading Finnish eBike hardware and software engineering company.
Under the deal, Revonte will provide EAV with technology including a fully integrated stepless transmission for its EAVcab model, specifically for eCargo use.
EAV believes the move will allow it to ensure its vehicles provide a greater user experience and improved efficiency while also generating valuable user data.
Adam Barmby, Technical Director and founder of EAV, said, “Technical development is at the forefront of our work at EAV. We know that we can use a bio-mechanical electric hybrid vehicle like EAV to replace most vans and even cars in urban environments without any loss in operational efficiency, but we need to see how far we can improve that offering and where those improvements need to be.
“We’re already fully modular with the EAVcab offering multiple models on the same chassis and we’re working on our own wheel, tyre and braking developments to over-engineer safety in to all EAV vehicles.
“The inclusion of the Revonte ONE Drive system and working with Revonte to package that with EAV vehicles will take our ULCVs well beyond the next level.”
