Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Why make something and just throw it away after you use it? We believe that we have to alter the way we look at our production by using recyclable materials and smart design to initiate a circular economy. The switch to electrical drivetrains requires significant changes to the vehicles' design, this is the perfect moment to step away from the traditional design mentality and start with a clean slate.

What we do


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.
