One of the many rules of staying safe from contracting COVID – 19 is having access to fresh air. Given the dangers of the virus, many companies are now coming up to destroy some of this virus. Canoo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOEV) is one such company. The manufacturer of breakthrough electric vehicles (EVs) has a new wellness package; a virus-killing cabin climate control with Air Purifying qualities. The Los Angeles-based institution boasts a unique business model in its development of vehicles alongside bold innovations and pioneering technologies.
The Wellness Package is in Line With Canoo’s Mission to Bring EVs to Everyone
The primary role of the air purifying technology is to enhance the interior air quality in the cabins and keep them germ-free. It is pre-loaded in the Premium and Adventure packages of its Lifestyle Vehicle. However, this particular technology would serve families better and is applicable for ride-hailing and road trips.
“…our UV-light technology instantly kills viruses…Covid-19 changed the way we think about health – and we’re passing on that future proofing to our customers, and everyone that rides with them,” the CEO & Executive Chairman, Canoo Inc. Tony Aquila highlighted.
How Does the Air Purifying System in Canoo Work?
Canoo’s modular platform purpose-built technology supports a wide range of vehicle applications. For both consumers and businesses. A combination of UV-A and UV-C lights with a Titanium Dioxide coated filter results in a photocatalytic process. This leads to the breaking down of pollutants and airborne particles. And with time, they are disarmed.
Canoo’s concept of filtration systems and internal thermal management systems were birthed in 2018. Unfortunately, this was way before the present day rising awareness of progressive public health measures. The good news is that the filtration system speeds the elimination of viruses compared to the HEPA filter. It is also cost-effective and does not require frequent maintenance or replacement.
