In a bid to increase the number of electric vehicles on the roads and boost the technology used in this area, Arrival are releasing a new electric truck.
It can be built in four hours by just one person. This means that ten men, working two shifts a day can assemble 10,000 trucks a year.
Arrival has developed nine electric vans for Royal Mail. The prototypes from Arrival will operate from Royal Mail’s central London ‘Mount Pleasant’ depot, to various distribution centres across the city. They also supply the motors and electronics for Formula E driverless racers, Roboracer.
Arrival has been building trucks ranging from 3.5 tonnes to 26 tonnes and is designing all of its vehicles in line with electric vehicle legislation in London and the UK
For the first 100 miles the truck travels, it produces ‘zero emissions,’ the company claims. For longer journeys, a dual mode can be used to ‘top up’ the battery and extend the range to 500 miles. The trucks will be built at a series of new factories in Oxfordshire over the next few years.
Arrival are removing all the barriers to entry for electric vehicles by pricing them in line with conventional trucks, giving every fleet manager, tradesman or company, no matter how big or small, the opportunity to change the way they transport goods and make our towns and cities better places to live in.
To ensure Arrival branding is reflected throughout their new manufacturing facility they decided to purchase a ‘special’ run of unique pure white brackets for their applications.
