Canoo's Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle 190 (LDV 190)

JUSTIN, Texas, June 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canoo Inc. (Nasdaq: GOEV), a high-tech advanced mobility company, today announced that the company has been honored by receiving several Red Dot Design Awards, including the coveted “Best of the Best” award, which is awarded to pioneering designs, in the Red Dot: Design Concept 2024 for its Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle 190 (LDV 190). Canoo received a nomination for the Red Dot: Luminary, the highest recognition awarded at the Red Dot Award: Design Concept for the LDV 190. The company’s American Bulldog electric truck also received recognition as a 2024 Red Dot winner.

The Red Dot Award is an annual international competition recognizing excellence in design and one of the world’s largest design competitions. The Red Dot Label has become established as one of the most sought-after marks of quality for exceptional design. Each year, a panel of designers, professors and specialist journalists rigorously assess submissions based on criteria such as design quality and innovation, function and overall product excellence, aiming to identify the world’s finest products. The Red Dot Design Concept Awards Ceremony will be held on October 10, 2024 in Singapore.

Canoo’s LDV 190 is an innovative approach to electric vehicle design, characterized by its distinctive clean, minimalist shape, versatility and cutting-edge technology. The vehicle provides maximum utility, offering flexibility while supporting a wide range of business and government applications. Canoo’s emphasis on sustainability is reflected in the LDV 190’s use of eco-friendly materials with the smallest footprint and longest range in the Class 2 segment.

The LDV 190 was designed from the inside-out, focusing on driver ergonomics and the customers’ use cases. With a low floor, spacious cabin, and steer-by-wire technology that allows easier ingress and egress, this vehicle prioritizes inclusivity and accessibility for drivers of all abilities. From the driver’s perspective, steer-by-wire enables 1.2 turns lock-to-lock of the steering wheel (compared to typical 2.7 lock-to-lock for a traditional vehicle) making it much easier to steer and maneuver. The LDV 190 redefines the delivery experience, seamlessly blending cutting-edge technology, sustainability, and human-centric design to pave the way for a future of clean, efficient, and inclusive mobility.

“We are honored to receive these prestigious recognitions from Red Dot and are proud that our LDV 190 and American Bulldog has been recognized based on innovation, aesthetics and utility,” said Tony Aquila, investor, executive chairman and CEO at Canoo. “Our goal is to purposefully design EVs that meet the sustainably, reliability, functionality and the ergonomic needs of our customers globally, including those that require right-hand drive. This award is a testament of our design philosophy and values and our team’s dedication and hard work to the aesthetically functional design of innovative electric vehicles that help to modernize transportation across the globe.”

Canoo's American Bulldog

Canoo also won a 2024 Red Dot Design Award with its American Bulldog electric truck. The vehicle is a powerhouse of engineering and a reinterpretation of the classic pickup truck, blending rugged utility with modern design. Its robust exterior features a rigid stance and clean, angular lines, exuding strength and durability on two or four wheels. Taking cues from military technology, this truck prioritizes function over form, resulting in a rugged, modular machine built to conquer any terrain.

Canoo has been a recipient of several design awards, with their Lifestyle Vehicle and electric pickup truck honored with a Red Dot Best of the Best in 2020 and 2021. This consistent recognition demonstrates Canoo’s commitment to maintaining high design standards, affirming its position as a leading electric vehicle manufacturer.
