First EV built for ride hailing

The newly launched Arrival Car has been designed specifically for the ride hailing industry.

Arrival has been able to develop the EV alongside ride-hailing drivers from Uber in just over six months, with the car prioritising cost, uptime, driver comfort, safety, and convenience, given that an average ride-hail vehicle will on average drive 45-50,000km a year, versus 12,000km, for a typical vehicle.

This timeframe and partnership to create a purpose-built vehicle is made possible because of Arrival’s vertical integration utilising technologies that are shared across Arrival’s entire portfolio of vehicles that also includes the ‘Van’ and the ‘Bus’.

Tom Elvidge, EVP vehicle platforms at Arrival said: “Electrifying ride-hailing will play a crucial role in reducing the emissions of vehicles in cities globally, providing a sustainable, clean multi-modal transportation system for communities. We are keen on supporting drivers with this transition by developing the best possible product for ride hailing that elevates the experience for both them and their passengers, making urban air clean in the process.”
