Canoo is mainly known for their electric vehicles (EV), most notably their proprietary skateboard chassis, and to show just how versatile it is, the company transformed it into a cabin-less “skatekart”. Professional racing driver Sara Price was invited to test the performance of the platform, which will be the base for all Canoo vehicles. What makes it so special? Well, the platform supports dual, front or rear motor configurations, and can generate up to 500 horsepower, while boasting over 300 miles of range with dual motors.
The skateboard platform also includes the industry’s first true steer-by-wire system, inspired by performance race cars, to provide a highly responsive driving experience. This system eliminates the mechanical steering connections between the cabin and skateboard, making it perfect for full autonomy once commercially available. What makes the skateboard truly versatile is its modular design that offers a truly self-contained, fully functional rolling chassis, which means it can be driven entirely independently.

I was blown away by how fun it was to drive. The overall performance was impressive. The skateboard felt powerful, with smooth and dynamic handling, especially during high speed cornering. The drive-by-wire steering was something new for me and it felt like it was built for the track,” said professional racing driver, Sara Price.
