Hyundai joins forces with Californian electric vehicle maker Canoo

Korean carmaker Hyundai Motor Company is set to begin co-developing an electric vehicle (EV) platform with Californian subscription-only startup Canoo.

The skateboard is also a self-contained unit able to be paired with any cabin design.
