Hyundai said that Canoo will be provided with engineering services to create new EV. It’s skateboard design will not only place a battery but also the motors and controllers as a result passenger can enjoy a lot of cabin spaces.
Canoo’s current CEO Ulrich Kranz said that, “It’s really important for us because having a household name like Hyundai do some work with the startup like Canoo proves that we have a good concept and a good team.”
