General Motors' electric commercial van has now officially arrived, with BrightDrop's first customer, FedEx, receiving five EV600s out of a total order of 500 late last week. The EV600 uses GM's Ultium batteries for a claimed 250-mile range and has 600 cubic feet of storage space.

First revealed last January, General Motors says that this makes the EV600 the "fastest built vehicle, from concept to market, in General Motors history."

Thanks. I would imagine the modular skateboard Ultium design platform would make it easier and cheaper to get vehicles designed and built. Hope this succeeds. FEDEX ups Amazon all going electric for local delivery. Good to see.

GM's BrightDrop expects to make the EV600s available to more customers to order starting in early 2022.

BrightDrop EP1 – BrightDrop’s first product to market, the EP1, will be a propulsion-assisted, electric pallet (think driverless airport luggage pods) developed to easily move goods over short distances – for example, from the delivery vehicle to the customer’s front door. Available in early 2021, the EP1 can help reduce package touch points, costs and physical strain on delivery drivers. EP1 features and benefits include:

Built-in electric hub motors with adjustable speed up to 3 mph depending on operator’s walking pace.
Maneuverable in tight spaces.
Carries and secures approximately 23 total cubic feet of cargo.
Payload capacity of 200 pounds.
Adjustable shelving organizes contents.
Lockable cabinet doors allow for secure, remote access to contents.
