Electric car startup Uniti has reached an expected pre-order value of over €50m (US$58m) for its debut vehicle, Uniti One.
Since unveiling its prototype vehicle during last December’s U17 launch event, Uniti has reported significant interest in the two-seat Uniti One from prospective buyers and fleet purchasers around the world.
“This is an important milestone for our new company,” said Robin Eriksson, Uniti CMO. “We conducted a small market test to validate the demand of our vehicle and the response has been very strong. We are now working intensively with our development and production partners to finalize supply potential so we can scale accordingly.”
The Uniti One is designed with strict parameters for energy efficiency, allowing it to offer a targeted 150-300km single-charge range without requiring larger, more cost prohibitive batteries.
“We have a long way to go toward our production model, certification, and the delivery of our first cars, but the commitment the market has already shown for our product and our brand goes a long way to accelerate this process” added Lewis Horne, Uniti CEO.
Uniti will initially offer the Uniti One to buyers in Northern European metro areas, with first deliveries of the vehicle planned for late 2019. Additional markets will be added at later dates. Potential customers can pre-order the vehicle for a refundable fee of €149 (US$173).
