Canoo Further Expands its International Market Presence through the Red Sea Global Partnership in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Justin, TX and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, April 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canoo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOEV), a high-tech advanced mobility company, announced its innovative electric vehicles will be used in a pilot program by Red Sea Global (RSG), the developer behind the regenerative tourism destinations The Red Sea and AMAALA.

Red Sea Global will pilot Canoo’s Lifestyle Vehicle (LV), Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle (LDV) 190, and the Bulldog pickup truck. The Canoo vehicles will be piloted for travel between Red Sea Global’s international airport, its various resorts, facilities, and excursions. This trial will help tailor Canoo’s zero-emission vehicles to RSG’s use cases and mobility needs.

Canoo’s premium LV will provide transportation for guests traveling between Red Sea International Airport (RSI) and its resorts and residential properties. Likewise, Canoo’s LDV 190 can help with the movement of guest luggage items between RSI and the various properties. Canoo’s Bulldog fits the use case and needs of RSG’s experience companies, Akun, WAMA, and Galaxea, for transporting guests to their various excursions.

“Red Sea Global is an inspiring development illustrating the Crown Prince’s Vision 2030 goal to responsibly diversify its economy in an eco-friendly way. This resort will further transform the Kingdom showing the world the beauty of the Red Sea, which is a cornerstone of his vision. If you’ve been there in the last few years you would marvel at the scale and pace that his team has progressed the project with unique experiences.” said Tony Aquila, Investor, Executive Chairman, and CEO of Canoo. “This pilot is an important step in further aligning our product portfolio to deliver climate-friendly, all-terrain, and climatic-conditioned versions of our platform. We are excited and honored to return to this important region with our first Red Sea edition pilot vehicles!”

“When we first laid out our vision of regenerative tourism, we knew that not all of the solutions we’d need to achieve our goals yet existed. That is why we seek to work with forward-thinking partners who are pioneering the technology that could help us in the fight against climate change. Canoo is an innovator in the world of clean mobility and we’re proud to be putting their ideas and technology to the test at our unique destinations,” said John Pagano, Group CEO at Red Sea Global.
