Swedish auto startup Uniti unveils its first car – the bold city EV, “Uniti One”

December 7, 2017

Uniti, Sweden’s newest electric carmaker, today revealed its eagerly awaited new vehicle, the Uniti One. The stylish yet affordable vehicle is designed to set new standards in sustainability, safety, and convenience.

Held at the company’s production facility in Landskrona, Uniti’s first annual launch event (U17) offered a first peek of the capabilities of Uniti One in front of a 2,000-people strong crowd of press, insiders, enthusiasts, investors, and partners. Audience members were given a hands-on preview of the vehicle’s many innovative features, such as impressive energy efficiency, and it’s unique and intuitive user experience. Lewis Horne, CEO of Uniti states, “We are pleased to share our progress and demonstrate our vision for future mobility as we move towards mass production.” A demonstration of its forward-thinking interior drew audible interest as it showcased two available steering options, one traditional and also their world-first, center pivot joystick control system unique to Uniti.

The event also included demonstrations and symposia from teams representing twenty-four key partners including Nvidia, Siemens, Tele2, E.ON, Kuka Robotics, Haldex, BorgWarner, Fanuc Robots and many more. To illustrate how the highly sustainable Uniti One will emit at least 75% less carbon across its lifecycle, partner Kuka Robotics demonstrated a vision of Uniti’s lean and automated approach to manufacturing, one that is significantly more scalable than traditional automotive production methods.

Prospective drivers in Sweden can visit in-store showrooms to see the Uniti One for themselves by visiting MediaMarkt locations in Malmö (Svågertorp) and Stockholm (Nacka) through March 2018.
