Uniti One Electric Urban Prototype Unveiled With 300Km Of Range

While more and more startups have been tapping into the electric car market, only a handful of them have succeeded so far. Nevertheless, this hasn’t deterred a small new company called Uniti.

The Swedish firm has crowdsourced the necessary funds to build a working prototype of a battery-powered urban car called the Uniti One, and they recently unveiled it for web surfers to see.

With an interesting exterior design that has something futuristic in it, the small EV has a clean look all around, a panoramic windscreen with slim A pillars and can sit two people in tandem inside, just like a Renault Twizy.

However, unlike the French EV, the Uniti One actually has a more premium interior, real doors and windows, and a starting price of just under €19,900 (equal to $23,490). Clicking on the reservation button reveals a different MSRP of €14,900 ($17,588), and the company is also taking pre-orders, for €149 ($176), said to be “refundable at any time”.

The vehicle is controllable via a joystick-like steering wheel, with a large portrait-oriented tablet in the middle, in prototype form at least, and has ambient lighting.

Scrolling through their website brings forward a targeted range of up to 300km (186mi), thanks to a 22kWh battery that’s said to take 3 hours and 10 minutes to fully charge using a home fast charging kit. It’s also compatible with DC charging, promising a range of 200km (124mi) in just 30 minutes.

Described as “suitable for both city and highway driving”, with a “unique and contemporary approach to safety, sustainability and user experience”, the Uniti One has a top speed of up to 130km/h (81mph) and can travel from 0 to 80km/h (0-50mph) in 3.5 seconds, in ‘Sports’mode.

The electric startup talks about a “smart heads-up display” with “the world’s largest and most advanced interactive HUD”, plus human-machine interaction, electronic steering, as well as a 4-seat option.

    So a small one-seater ? Not sure it will catch on in the crossover era. People don’t feel safe in small vehicles.

  • Looks very cool, amazing concept, but the price is still eye-watering. Maybe with gov. grants it starts to make sense, otherwise a Nissan Leaf is barely more expensive and offers hell a lot more.
