Canoo sets its sights on UK market

A brand-new range of US-built electric vans has made its UK debut at the CV Show 2024.

Canoo is an American manufacturer with a factory and headquarters in California and describes its electric vans as ‘Lifestyle Delivery Vehicles’, with futuristic ‘pod’ styling and a range of body styles including short and medium wheelbase vans and a pick-up.

The battery-powered vehicles come with a choice of 200 and 350PS electric motors, with an 80kWh battery pack and projected range of up to 217 miles, depending on body type.

The UK market is a key part of Canoo’s expansion plans, as it already produces right-hand-drive vehicles for the US Postal Service, where the postal worker exits the van from the kerbside.

Further details on pricing and Canoo’s expansion in the UK are expected this summer, along with an announcement on how the vans will be sold and marketed.

Is a DPF expensive to replace?

Is the DPF on a Fiat 2.3 Multijet engine expensive to replace?
The DPF on the Fiat 2.3 multi jet engine ranges in price from around £300 for an aftermarket part to just over £1100 for a genuine factory part. Replacement isn't too difficult - you'll be looking at 2-3 hours about from a garage so if you factor in around £200 about then you'd be looking at around £500 to £1300 depending on the choice of parts used.
