About Canoo vehicle

Canoo appreciates their product, saying that in addition to extreme conditions, their vehicle is designed to be even stealthy, by further integrating a stealth configuration. The vehicle is built on modules – convertible boards, mounting racks, ramps, and tactical systems. I.e. The LTV can easily transform from an army pick-up to an army cargo truck.

Canoo’s LTV allows the integration of racks, racks, ramps, storage boxes, tents, or any type of tactical system. The LTV is a lightweight vehicle thanks to the use of carbon Kevlar as part of its construction.

32-inch tires move the heart of the vehicle, and the batteries guarantee 600 hp of power, while at the same time the drive is on each of the wheels separately, provided by the company’s specially developed drive system.
