Designed in Sweden and engineered in the UK, the futuristic-looking Uniti One has been created from the ground-up to be an urban electric vehicle. Four years in the making it is finally available to order.
Uniti was established in 2015 as an open innovation research project at Lund University, Sweden, with the aim of better understanding the societal and environmental impact of modern cars.
The project quickly expanded as the team realized that they could start to simultaneously address the changing usage patterns of commuters and the growing need for more sustainable mobility solutions, through innovation and the application of emerging technologies, and by taking a completely fresh look at the role of the automobile.
Uniti has undertaken a series of crowd-funding campaigns, which acted as mechanisms to build a community around the team’s vision, and provide the investment needed to kick-start the company’s sustainable business plan.
Fully optimized for efficiency, sustainability and affordability, whilst maximizing interior space for three adults. All of which has been achieved without sacrificing quality, comfort or real-world usability.
The Uniti One is priced from £15,100 (£18,600 before UK Government subsidy) and will be offered initially to buyers in northern Europe, with first deliveries planned in Sweden and the UK for mid-2020. Additional markets will be added in time, said Uniti.
