Swedish electric car Uniti raises £1M on CrowdCube
London - Uniti Sweden, the maker of the 100% electric, autonomous-ready city car Uniti One, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on UK-based platform Crowdcube. This is a unique opportunity for investors to contribute to the success of a company called the “Tesla for megacities” by Business Insider. The company surpassed its initial goal of raising £1,000,000 from more than 1500 investors from 65 countries and has elected to extend the campaign to offer additional investors a chance to “own part of the solution.”
The timing of the campaign correlates with a surge in interest for market-based solutions to deal with the challenges of global climate change. As Sir David Attenborough noted recently at the UN climate talks in Katowice, Poland, “if we don't take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.” Core to Uniti’s sustainable model is to provide reductions in traffic congestion, urban pollution and carbon emissions while adding investment and jobs to the local UK economy. “Uniti is designed to dramatically disrupt the existing vehicle ownership model, accelerate the transition to clean transport, and help countries meet Paris climate targets with stronger economic growth,” said Uniti Chairman, Dr. Michael Molitor.
The aim of the current crowdfunding effort is to help accelerate Uniti's market entry into the UK, where they plan to launch their 2-seat electric car in 2020. In October, the company announced its intent to establish a pilot production plant within the UK's Silverstone Technology Cluster and has already shifted much of its electric vehicle R&D to the region. Funds raised will go toward supporting this ongoing vehicle development by the engineering team in Northamptonshire.
