Quoted from CarsCoops, Tuesday, autonomous vehicles go to a customer’s home or business and then they can use the Udelv app to pick up their stuff. Thanks to its series of sliding doors, users can only retrieve their belongings while the rest of the cargo remains safe.
The transport car is equipped with 90 and 160 kWh battery packs, allowing a range of 160-300 miles (257-483 km). This model is also capable of traveling at speeds of up to 70 mph (113 km/h), which stands out as it allows the vehicle to travel on the highway.
