Toronto, Ontario — In a recent interview with Automotive News Canada, Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA) Chief Technical Officer Fraser Dunn said the Project Arrow all-Canadian concept vehicle is on course with a reveal planned for the Las Vegas-based CES show in January 2023.
The car will be assembled from eight mega-stampings laser-welded together, said Dunn. It will also feature large magnesium casting for the front and rear frames, inspired by the Tesla Model Y. He also said Project Arrow is targeting Level 3 autonomy.
The concept car will be powered by cylindrical cells from VoltaXplore, a joint venture between Martinrea International and graphene firm NanoXplore Inc.
It will also incorporate technologies from Ontario Tech University and its Automotive Center of Excellence in Oshawa.
So far, more than 400 Canadian companies have expressed interest in taking part in the Project Arrow.
