Canada Shows Its Stuff
23 Mar 2023
As a conspicuous demonstration of Canadian technology and talent, Project Arrow debuted to rave reviews in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. A concept vehicle three years in development, Project Arrow, said one auto industry observer, “delivers on all of its promises, and on time.”
A zero-emission SUV, the futuristic Project Arrow boasts a bevy of new technologies, all developed in Canada. An “open network” computing system designed by a tech company in Kingston functions as its brain. A solar-paneled roof generates sufficient juice to power some of the vehicle’s gaudy functions, which include cybersecurity defenses and a health monitoring system. Capable of going from zero-to-60 mph in under 3.5 seconds, Project Arrow also features wireless charging capabilities and a 3D-printed chassis made by a Toronto-based startup.
