Swedish electric car startup Uniti unveils working prototype of urban commuting car
Swedish crowdfunded electric car startup Uniti has released a short video to unveil a working prototype of an urban electric vehicle (EV) designed by the company. The EV has been named Uniti One.
The release of the video by Uniti implies that the company, which had crowdsourced an amount of more than $1 million for building a prototype of an urban EV, has actually developed a working prototype of the vehicle.
Unveiling the working prototype of the EV that has been designed by the startup, the short video released by Uniti presents the vehicle as an affordably-priced urban commuting car which is poised to challenge smart cars and other similar vehicles.
According to the information released by Uniti, the cost of the Uniti one urban car will be “under €19,900” (~$23,400 USD).
The Uniti One EV will be equipped with a 22 kWh battery pack, and will have a range of 300 km (186 miles); with its DC charging capability enabling it to add 200 km of range in barely 30 minutes. The vehicle will take barely 3.5 seconds to accelerate from zero to 80 kilometre per hour (km/h) in ‘sports mode,’ and will have a top speed of up to 130 km/h (81 miles per hour).
