Uniti is a Swedish company founded in 2016 by Lewis Horne, an entrepreneur born in Australia who wanted to produce electric cars for the “millennial generation”.
The first Swedish electric model is made of carbon fiber and is bio, so the weight is only 450 kilometers. The car that will be presented on December 7 can come in two variants, with two or four seats.
The development of the car was possible after the company launched a fundraising campaign, which has earned more than 20 million euros from about 1,000 investors.
The money was used for the opening of a factory in the city of Landskrona, in southern Sweden.
Landskrona was picked as an ideal location for the factory after Uniti consulted industry leaders and stakeholders. It is placed close to important Swedish cities like Malmo and Lund, as well as the Danish capital of Copenhagen.
Founder and CEO Lewis Horne CEO declared that “Landskrona is an ideal hub for manufacturing and assembling our products. It is clear that the city has strong ambitions to become a new technology centre in the region, and they certainly have the resources to achieve this.”
Uniti has already received 915 orders for the little electric car. Sales and deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2019.
