Uniti, the electric carmaker from Sweden, revealed today its awaited new vehicle, the Uniti One. The vehicle is designed to set new standards in sustainability, safety, and convenience for a price tag of under €19 900.

Audience members were given a hands-on preview of the vehicle’s many innovative features, with an energy efficiency (300km with only a 22kWh battery), and it’s unique and intuitive user experience. It can even be installed with accessories like a car windscreen sun shade. 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.
Uniti will offer a line of two, four and five-seat vehicle models, with first deliveries targeted for 2019. The high-end versions will retail for around €19,900, with lower cost options available for as low as €14 900. Eager customers can join the growing list, with over 1,000 pre-orders to date.
Further details and purchase options are available online at our through Uniti retail partner MediaMarkt. Prospective drivers in Sweden can also now visit in-store showrooms to see the Uniti One for themselves by visiting MediaMarkt locations in Malmö (Svågertorp) and Stockholm (Nacka).
