Tel Aviv, Israel – September, 2021 — REE Automotive LTD (NASDAQ: “REE”), a leader in e-mobility, today announced that Frost & Sullivan has recognized REE as the 2021 Global EV Platform Company of the Year. The award is based on Frost & Sullivan’s analysis of the global automotive market and its evaluation of REE’s excellence in best practices for innovation and customer impact.
Benny Daniel, vice president at Frost & Sullivan, stated: “REE’s corner module technology and EV platforms continue to excel by offering customers the ability to reshape their EV design and system integration, paving the way for the future of e-mobility and modularity in automobiles. As the automobile industry undergoes rapid transformation, Frost & Sullivan applauds REE’s leadership aspiration in delivering the most up-to-date modular EV platforms.” Frost & Sullivan determined that “REE’s technology will provide significant operational and functional advantages over the traditional EV fleets industry in the future due to its excellent long-term customer benefits.”

Thank you to Frost & Sullivan for acknowledging the work that our team puts into innovating for the future.”
Frost & Sullivan’s research and analysis indicates that EV demand has grown by 280% over the last 3 years, reaching approximately 2 million units sold globally.
