Electric vehicle startup Canoo has successfully delivered a shipment of its Crew Transportation Vehicles (CTVs) to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

These specially designed vans, based on Canoo's existing lifestyle vehicle design, will be used to transport astronauts and flight support crew to the launch pads for NASA's upcoming Artemis 2 mission.

Canoo's CTVs are capable of carrying fully-suited astronauts along with their equipment, providing comfort and safety during the nine-mile journey to the launch pad. While specific interior details are yet to be revealed, Canoo promises an exclusive design that prioritizes astronaut well-being.

For Canoo, partnering with NASA presents a valuable opportunity to showcase its electric vehicle technology. The company has struggled financially recently, but has made significant progress with a deal with Walmart to supply 4,500 electric vehicles and has delivered a test vehicle to the U.S. Army.

The Artemis 2 mission marks NASA's return to crewed lunar exploration, aiming to send four astronauts on a 10-day flight around the Moon.
