    Ever since we saw the renders of the fantastic, futuristic and electric ARRIVAL delivery vans we have been desperate to see one in the metal... and it definitely does not disappoint. Robert was lucky enough to visit the ARRIVAL headquarters and sneak a first look at the impressive design which is attracting interest from numerous big name businesses. Designed from the ground up and with price parity as the focus, ARRIVAL's Chief of Product Patrick Bion talks about rethinking the user experience and delivering the lowest cost solution for delivery fleets.

      I am so glad to see development of mass produced vehicles in this class at 'price parity'. It gives me hope that I may actually see all electric Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles big enough for ramp/lift access at fleet affordable prices. It would be ideal for users who don't want diesel and only need to do a couple of hundred miles per week but need a large vehicle (Boxer class).

      Unless Arrival is close to producing a long-range pickup & SUV with offroad capability for $60k - $100k, calling them "Britain's Rivian" is clickbait

      @FullyChargedShw @bobbyllew Any details about the UK (but not NI) special electric/alternative fuelled vans extension to GVW from 3.5t to 4.25t? Many of the EV vans I've looked at are still being built to the lower ICE GVW, and the cargo weight suffers.
      The last thing I read showed a situation complicated by an additional requirement for 5hrs of training from a full HGV provider in order to permit a regular Category B car licence holder to go up to the heavier GVW. That has an impact on a lot of charities who rely on unpaid voluntary drivers. It was also not permitted to tow a trailer with the heavier GVW van. A full Category C HGV licence has a lifespan and continuing training requirement, but a Cat B doesn't - will the 'Special Cat B' extra bit be for ever, or five years then renewed?
      Not sure how that additional training will be reflected on UK licences, and if that's all drivers, or just those without an existing C1 category, including 'grandfather rights' like old(er) farts like me. 😁

    Point of Interests:
    1:52 design term
    2:28 way of judging
    3:59 rather than the "green wash" (eww, that hurts for some reason)
    4:13 bi-directional charging
    5:25 range of driving km (use case)
    6:56 batteries and "vertically integrated"
    7:32 parts interchangeability
    10:50 orders and mfd, and autonomy use case for this
    14:14 micro-factory model

    1:01 shouldnt the subscribe counter be upped or the number's significant figs be reduced (as in 681K) to avoid that?

    So with the viewership of this 1 video or 2% of the subscribers of this channel come together we could place an order of 10k vehicles? Then we could be driving one in less than 3 years? Would that be possible?

    If they can make the purchase + running cost similar to a diesel whilst building in the UK then that’s impressive but probably means Asian countries will be able to supply similar vehicles to the UK at a lower price.

    The big saving here is just fuel he said! Then he tried to correct that statement, but not sure. The biggest income for any car dealership is maintenance man. I have been just getting diagnosed to double check the issue in many cars that I have fixed myself and many times you have to pay more for labor than what you paid for the car.
    The other classic patterns here are these: 1) I don’t drive to many miles or I drive too many miles
    2) the process it’s going to be slow
    3) miles range
    People, you never stop paying for your combustion cars, insane maintenance prices, non stop ever for gas and to make is even worse they are killing the place where we live.
    When we switch our minds that the main priority to jump to fully electric vehicles is because we want to protect the environment where we live the transition it will be no time. When you start talking about money and another irrelevant subject the transition will be for ever.

    One huge piece of glass windshield that will have to replaced everytime it gets a rock chip. SMAWT! Touch to open door will be helpful when being chased by a dog. You get to wait for 15 seconds while the dogs bites you. PROGRETHIVE IDEA! And when the door doesnt open, at all the mechanics will be sure to say, "Could not replicate, ops ok! Safe to drive"

    I like how low to the ground the driver is sitting, making it difficult for them to see over other cars and decreasing their eye-lead time. Makes the threat of an accident more thrilling and exciting! I also like how the shelving doesnt have an edge to retain the boxes, adding extra damage to the already-mangled boxes as they slide off the shelves and bounce all over the place on a dirt road. NOW youre thinking!

    Zachary Noyce 7 days ago

    Fleet vehicles and delivery vehicles are such an ideal market niche for electric vehicles. A lot of these vehicles are driven virtually identical distances each day. Or, you know, with a 10 percent or so fluctuation (45 km on a light day, 50 on average, and 55 on a really busy day). So you can just target that figure for the battery, unlike consumers who (rightly) feel like they need their car to have double or triple their typical range requirements since we tend to have much more widely variable day-to-day range requirements, often driving two or three times our typical range.
