a closer look
The Vax ev is designed to be as easy and affordable to repair as possible. The corrugated cardboard panels that form the body of the Vax ev can be replaced if they get damaged, and cost just a tenth of an equivalent plastic panel.
The panels are multi-purpose too, beginning their life as part of the retail box the vacuum cleaner is sold in. Once the cardboard parts are separated from the box, they 'pop' into place around the motor housing without any need for glue.
