Electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer Canoo has commenced the delivery of its Lifestyle Delivery Vehicles (LDVs) to commercial van and fleet rental company Kingbee. This marks an early fulfillment of the substantial 9,300-unit order placed by Kingbee in 2022, with the LDV 130 units destined for integration into Kingbee’s rental fleet. Canoo plans to continue deliveries throughout 2024 as production accelerates at its newly established manufacturing facility in Oklahoma.

In an official statement on Wednesday, Canoo’s CEO, Tony Aquila, expressed pride in the increasing presence of Canoo vehicles on American roads, emphasizing their engineering for service industries and optimization for safety, reliability, and comfort. The LDVs are designed to cater to the needs of service workers, providing a competitive edge for commercial fleet companies.

Scott Haslam, Kingbee CEO, expressed excitement about assisting fleets in transitioning to electric vehicles and highlighted Kingbee’s role as a flexible option for various fleet sizes. The company looks forward to integrating Canoo’s LDVs into its EV portfolio.

Canoo has gradually delivered small volumes of LDVs over the past years, with the latest deliveries originating from its Oklahoma City manufacturing plant. The company has previously supplied specialized LDV versions to NASA for the Artemis missions and tactical versions to the U.S. Army in 2021.
