KYB & REE Automotive partner on next-generation modular EV Platform

EV platform company p and KYB Corporation (KYB), one of the world’s largest suppliers of suspensions, announced a strategic partnership to develop suspension capabilities for future electric vehicle (EV) platforms.


Automotive Tier 1 supplier KYB’s semi-active and active suspension systems will boost REE’s next-generation EV platform, which delivers complete design freedom and cost-effective, scalable solutions in e-mobility.

REE’s partnership with KYB further expands REE’s global manufacturing capabilities. It also ignites a new level of suspension technology within the REEcorner architecture solution, which integrates all drivetrain vehicle components (steering, braking, suspension, e-motor) into the wheel.

The REEcorner combines with the REEboard—a completely flat platform—allowing complete freedom of design, improved performance and safety, and modular applications for any vehicle type.

The KYB-REE partnership marks the first time KYB has formally collaborated on EV platforms with a technology company.



You don't need all that expensive technical complication . What's needed is a simple straightforward inexpensive chassis that will allow for building EVs we all can afford. An EV around $20,000, without incentives, would do it. $40,000 EVs don't make sense and are acually holding back the transition to clean energy. Where is that model T?


I agree the affordable EV is not here yet, it can be if the economics are worked out. With small margins volume is key, EVs have not shown huge volume demand...yet.
