Called the “Launch Integration Center”, the new facility that REE plans to build United Kingdom will work as a pilot factory whose production technology will later be transferred to other similar facilities. Innovative recessors, corner units that group the wheels together, the electric motor, suspension, transmission, brakes and steering will be manufactured there. later mounted on REE Electric Platform, which consists of BatteryThanks to the electronic control by wire system, it makes it possible to free up space and modify the design of commercial electric vehicles.
REE has not indicated exactly where it will set up the new plant, except that it will be in England and will start operating the spring of next year. Plant capacity will reach 200,000 corner units built each year According to Daniel Burrell, CEO of REE to the magazine, when it will be fully operational coach,
This factory will increase its expected production rate. According to Burrell, “If you want to produce X quantities per day, it takes a while before it works out completely: If it works at half its capacity, it’s still a good product. That’s it. It’s just that the work being done is inefficient.”
The new factory configuration, which is already completely complete, will be reversed in other facilities, which will allow to increase the production rate of the entire company. Burrell says, “All robotic production equipment and processes are “time-bound and we make sure they work perfectly.” The same plan, which is already detailed, is attached and reproduced to the rest of the production centers around the world. Is performed.
Britain’s new factory will provide employment 58 people, For its financing, it received 12.4 million pounds sterling (approx. 14.6 million euros) of the Advanced Propulsion Center (APC), a non-profit organization that facilitates the funding of research and development projects for low carbon powertrain technologies and is located at the University of Warwick in Coventry, England.
Thanks to this investment, REE has been able to advance the development of its corner units in the recently built facility. Mira Vehicle Testing Center in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, The facility is used for testing products developed at the company’s headquarters in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The MIRA facility is larger than the Tel Aviv Development Centre, Burel said, and employs hundreds of people. “It is where we design all components, hardware, software and mechanics according to automotive standards” and where the company certifies its products.
For APC, which uses public money to attract foreign car companies to the UK, REE is one of their success stories. “Our work has allowed us to bring the company’s R&D here,” says its director, Ian Constance.
