September 25, 2019— Canoo, the Los Angeles-based company creating electric vehicles (EV) for subscription only, has unveiled its first model, simply called Canoo.

In less than 19 months since Canoo started, the company has achieved a major milestone by designing and engineering its first model, which is ready to present to the public.

"We believe that the potential of EV architecture can enable a post-SUV era that addresses the ever-growing desire for space and value," said Ulrich Kranz, of Canoo. "We promised a truly different approach for EVs, and our Canoo proves that we can deliver on that vision. The unveiling also kicks off the period of beta testing, meaning we are on track for our launch date in 2021. We are very proud of the team. In my 30 years' experience, I have never seen so many quality achievements in such a short time."

After the official unveiling today at its headquarters, Canoo will present its vehicle to the public at two events on a Southern Californian tour: The Abbot Kinney Festival in Venice, Calif., on Sept. 29; and The Car Classic at the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, Calif. on Oct. 20.

Los Angeles will be the launch market for the Canoo, starting in 2021.
