Reducing while producing

What is the purpose of a super-efficient car, when the process of producing the car nullifies its efficiency? We believe the production process should be altered in drastic ways. As the switch to electrical drivetrains requires significant changes to the vehicles’ design, we think that this is the perfect moment to step away from the traditional design mentality and start with a clean slate.

What we do

Vehicle

Every year, TU/ecomotive builds an innovative, electric car. We have developed our countries most efficient city car and the year after that we have created the world's first modular car. This year, we will take the next step to get closer to what we think will be the future of mobility.

Vision

We want to show the world, and especially the automotive industry, that there is a lot of potential in the evolution of the car. Through building compact and efficient city cars from durable materials, we are showing how cars of the future should be build.
