Crowdfunded EV city car unveiled

Swedish electric vehicle startup Uniti has unveiled its first crowdfunded EV city car. Uniti calls it the “One” which is shaped like a bubble or toilet, or whatever you want to call it. Uniti raised more than $1 million US dollars during its crowdfunding to build the prototype. They are now taking reservations online for their electric car with deliveries beginning in 2019. Uniti also plans to setup dealerships to sell the One EV in both Stockholm and Malmö, but customers may also be able to buy the car online as well.

However, there isn’t much details about the One yet, as startups usually like to wait to release any further details. What we do know is that it will have a range of 185 miles (300km) from its 22kWh battery. Fast DC charging in 30 minutes gives the car 125 miles (200km) of range, if need be. We do not know if autonomous self-driving capabilities will be added in the future.

Uniti will offer several customization options for the One EV. You can choose from two, four, or five seat layouts. Steering come in two choices – either a traditional steering wheel or a center mounted pivotal joystick. The joystick maybe the most unique feature and the company saw lots of interest of that during the unveiling of the One EV.

Prices start at €14,900 ($17,750 USD) and top out at €20,000 ($23,815 USD).
