Canoo is a start-up automotive company from Los Angeles targeted at millennials, and its project is to roll out a line of subscription-only EV microbuses.

The microbuses are designed by BMW i3 and i8 designer, Richard Kim. As a result, the electric vehicles are beautifully designed and simplistic, with a focus on bringing the culture of subscription-based services that are heavily associated with millennials to the automotive industry.

Each microbus is fitted with an 80 kWh battery that is good for 313lb-ft of torque, 300 BHP, 250 miles of range and a top speed of 125 MPH. It’s rear-wheel-drive and can be charged in just 28 minutes using DC fast charging, too. Canoo has equipped the microbus with seven seats — the rear being a single wraparound bench –  and has finished the interior with premium, yet highly minimal details. The Canoo EV is expected to launch in 2021.

In other electrifying news, Tesla has announced that it is working on a battery that can last one million miles.
