TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (March 11, 2020) – REE Automotive has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2020.
The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s fast-changing world.
“Innovation is the cornerstone of everything we believe in at REE,” said Daniel Barel, founder of REE. “We make the future of electric mobility more efficient, reliable and scalable. Thank you to Fast Company for recognizing the hard work the REE team puts into our product every day to change the future of transportation.”
REE’s disruptive technology enables a complete flat and modular chassis with optimal freedom of design, allowing multiple body configurations on a single platform, reducing space and weight and increasing efficiency. The REE platform integrates the motors, steering, suspension, drivetrain, sensing, brakes, and electronics into the wheel.
REE delivers the technology needed to revolutionize the way connected, autonomous, shared and electric (CASE) vehicles are developed. The company’s unique corner module integrates all vehicle components into a small footprint within the wheel arch to enable the development of a completely flat and modular EV and AV chassis. The REEcorner™ and REEboard™ offerings unlock ultimate flexibility – an automotive endeavor that was first envisioned in the 1980s but hasn’t been implemented successfully, until now.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“At a time of increasing global volatility, this year’s list showcases the resilience and optimism of businesses across the world. These companies are applying creativity to solve challenges within their industries and far beyond,” said Fast Company senior editor Amy Farley, who oversaw the issue with deputy editor David Lidsky.
Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2020) is now available online at fastcompany.com/most-innovative-companies/2020, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning March 17, 2020. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
