EV startup Canoo's first vehicle is a compact minivan priced from $34,750

It’s been almost two years since electric-vehicle startup Canoo first turned up on the scene with its roomy, distinctive-looking minivan. A lot has happened to the company since then, including a change in senior management, a stock market listing, and the reveal of two more vehicles.

It seems Canoo is finally ready to get to the business of building and selling vehicles. On Monday, the Los Angeles-based company started accepting reservations for its first three vehicles: the Lifestyle Vehicle, Pickup Truck, and Multi-Purpose Delivery Vehicle (MPDV).

The Lifestyle Vehicle is the new name for the minivan Canoo first showed in 2019. It’s due to start deliveries in 2022 and is estimated to start from $34,750, which would make it one of the most affordable EVs on sale in the United States.
