Indigo Technologies showcased two new electric vehicle designs targeting the ride-sharing and delivery markets at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The company describes itself as an OEM that offers a new range of electric vehicles that are smooth, spacious and affordable. The two new vehicle models are Indigo Flow and Flow Plus.
The company notes that its revolutionary robotic wheels enable a different type of electric vehicle that offers smoother ride and operation at a lower cost than any other vehicle in its class. The new model aims to compete with the Toyota RAV4 and Ford Transit Connect, and both will offer a range of over 250 miles from just 40kWh batteries.
Ride-sharing and delivery companies like Uber and Amazon joining The Climate Pledge are creating a need for efficient and capable electric vehicles that drivers can buy, the company noted; Emphasizing that this is a must.

Without a transmission and motor between the wheels, the Indigo Flow has a low, flat floor that is suitable for any size of its size.” Offers more load capacity than the vehicle, and active suspension at each wheel provides incredible ride comfort at an affordable cost that people will love.
