Please take a moment to think about the perfect car. What would it look like and what features would it have? Probably, your perfect car would be spacious, fast, exciting and luxurious, but at the same time it should be compact, economical and lightweight. Of course, it is impossible to build a car that combines all these features. Or is it?
Every year, TU/ecomotive builds a new car, a completely new, electrical, car. We have build our countries most efficcient city car. We have created the world's first modular car. Next year, we will take the next step to get closer to what we think is the future of mobility.
We want to show the world, and especially the automotive industry, that there is a lot of potential in the evolution of the car. By building compact and efficient city cars from durable materials, we are showing how cars of the future should be build.
Our challenge create awareness among car owners. The automotive is dominated by big companies, creating a voice is therefore a challenge. We tackle this by building a prototype in such a way that it is approved to go on the public roads.
Developing the car of the future requires a skilled multidisciplinary team; this year our team consists of 20 enthousiastic members from the Technical University Eindhoven. The team is not only building the car, but in charge of the financing and team management as well.
