EXCLUSIVE: BrightDrop EP1 first look

Cars
Speaker 1: From Hummer to the Cadillac lyric to a battery powered Chevy Silverado GM is staking its future on electric vehicles. But one of the automaker's most important EVs is nothing you would expect. It wears boxy form follows function. Styling has 23 cubic feet of storage space rolls on super stylish, five into quarter inch wheels and weighs a literal ton less than a Chevy spark. [00:00:30] This is the bright drop EP one propulsion assisted delivery pallet. Wait, what? Okay. So GM has basically built a motorized box. Why? Well, there are several reasons actually. So the EP one is designed to help people move packages and goods far more, easily and efficiently with less strain on their body. So you can think of this as a modern replacement for an old fashioned hand truck in this exclusive first [00:01:00] look video, I'll show you how this will works and why it's so important. Speaker 1: So whether you work in a warehouse or do door to door deliveries, this contraption can make life so much easier because the EP one can support up to 200 pounds of goods. Or in this case, a bunch of old camera equipment I found in the parking lot, wonder who that belongs to this puppy has a 600 wat hour, not kilowat hour lithium ion battery [00:01:30] pack. That can be recharged from a standard household outlet in about seven and a half hours. Motivation is provided by a 250 wat brushless electric motor that propels this box on wheels to a top speed of three miles per hour, a model, less plaid. It is not controlling. The 170 pound EP one is fairly simple and it's all done from right here. You've got a couple handles that you can hold onto like that your main power switch is here. Speaker 1: Your kill switch is down there. The preset speed is adjusted up or down with [00:02:00] these buttons right here, which it shows you on the L E D lights on this surface here forward and reverse is just a switch just like that forward and reverse. This little toggle is your throttle. And then just in case things, get outta hand, there's an emergency break right there, like practically every modern vehicle, the E you one has plenty of connected surfaces. It features location tracking. And if your E P one gets stolen, you could even remotely disable it to aid in recovery, [00:02:30] but don't take my word for it. FedEx tested the E P one and found it helped employees handle 25% more packages in a day, which makes this thing an absolute game changer for logistics companies, a driver can park his or her delivery truck stuff, the EP one with parcels, and then service an entire city block or high rise building without having to make extra trips back to the vehicle or drive to a new location each time. Speaker 1: This is where the gain are. The EP one is very easy to maneuver. It [00:03:00] basically drives itself. You just kind of steer it where you want it to go. And when you let go of the throttle, it does coast down to a stop all on its own. So you don't really have to use that hand brake much at all. I can totally see how this could dramatically increase efficiency. You may think GM has more than enough on its plate, developing electric, Hummers and whatnot, but it started bright drop a wholly owned subsidiary because there is a huge opportunity with the explosive growth of e-commerce. Especially during the pandemic with [00:03:30] everybody ordering stuff off, Amazon delivery companies have struggled to keep up. So they've thrown more drivers and trucks into the mix, but that's just creating a additional congestion and air pollution. The EP one pallet and EV 600 delivery van can help. Speaker 1: And we have a separate video on that vehicle. So make sure you check it out since e-commerce is not going to slow down. Anytime soon, bright job could be poised to make a real fortune as logistics and delivery companies look to reduce their environmental [00:04:00] impact, improve efficiency and lower pollution. At first glance, the bright drop E P one delivery pallet seems well a little bit silly, but as you've seen, it could be a real game changer. Unfortunately, pricing has not been announced yet, but this delivery pallet is available right now. Just don't look for it at your local Buick lake Cadillac or GMC dealership. If you wanna purchase one of these things or a fleet of them, you gotta visit the bright drop website. Make sure to watch our video on the [00:04:30] bright drop EV 600, which just published. I'm not asking you. I am telling you, give it a watch. This all electric van could revolutionize the delivery in industry.
