Canoo MPDV, or multipurpose delivery van, is finally here to satisfy the requirements of small to midsize business owners and small delivery operations. This van concentrates not only on smaller businesses and last-mile deliveries but also expects to satisfy the requirements of other businesses such as technicians, utility employees, contractors, and some other service-related business that may require the excess space.
This new model, made to be available in two dimensions, is based on the electrical platform of the business. With a driving range of 130 to 230 kilometers , it’ll be exciting to see just how far this multi-purpose van can take its own businesses.
Designed with the driver in your mind
Canoo thought of everything since they designed this van. As the driver, who’s likely an employee or company owner, is juggling many different things during their day, the driver’s chair acts somewhat like a cockpit. Total with driver-side storage and multiple compartments, there is not any chance of any motorist losing the essentials as they run their everyday errands and finish their jobs. The compartments comprise power sockets, cup holders, and several mobile phone holders.
As the MPDV was made with the idea of serving many different companies and functions, there are lots of small extras inside made to maintain the ride secure and well-prepared. Canoo’s multipurpose van comes complete with a stowed arsenal, cushioned dolly, and fire extinguisher — every one of which conveniently fit inside the van’s walls to make sure they do not take up any additional space. There is a foldable jump chair attached to the side of the wall along with a translucent sun visor to be utilized for both solitude and function.
Lots of storage
There are endless storage options to be found in Canoo’s MPDV. There’s hidden storage and an optional mail rack near the driver’s chair — both excellent options for shipping services. Then, as you proceed into the back of the van, hanging storage and adjustable shelving provide many different customizations to suit the needs of every individual enterprise.
Delivery services may also use the attached ramp and temperature control options to customize the van to their needs. Other additional customizations include lockers, retail shelving, marketplace bins, a canopy, as well as options to produce the perfect food truck full of café choices. Thus, proving that businesses of all kinds can benefit in the MPDV.
