Mission

EVUM Motors - One for All

We stand for affordable and sustainable e-mobility for everyone

Electric mobility for everyone

 

The aCar has been designed as an economical and sustainable all-purpose vehicle for developing and emerging countries and is also perfectly suited for applications in industrialized countries and urban areas. Its adaptability and robustness enable numerous applications for vineyards, farms, gardeners or municipalities as well as hotels and industries.

The genesis of EVUM Motors

Design based on understanding people’s needs now and in the future

 

Development

Evum Motors is a spin-off from Technical University of Munich. Our mission is the industrialization of the research project aCar mobility. The project was funded by the Bavarian Research Foundation.

The design is a joint effort between TUM and local universities in Ghana, Kenia, Nigeria and Tanzania. The vehicle concept has been derived with close link to local communities to suit local needs.

Drive the change to electric mobility in the developing world

 

our goal

Transportation is a key enabler to achieve the most urgent development goals in the developing & emerging world: education, healthcare and economic development.

Our aim is to provide citizens in developing countries with affordable and sustainable electric mobility.

Local production and the use of renewable off-grid electricity strengthens independence of communities and facilitates small and medium enterprises.

 

A true multi-purpose vehicle

EVUM provides features beyond transport of people and goods, to improve quality of life. The battery can store solar power and acts as an energy source.  An external power output allows the usage of any external electric device.

High volume production parts combined with local manufacturing and assembly

 

Knowledge exchange

Interdisciplinary research and industry knowledge combined with proven high volume production components from Europe create the basis for a robust electric drive. Design for manufacturing combined with local skills facilitate decentralized production of chassis, body and interior in Africa by small and medium enterprises.

A model factory is being built in Europe. Subsequently, new locations will be created globally by transferring the knowledge.

 

Prototype successfully tested in Ghana in summer 2017

 

Feels like home

The vehicle has been tested under real conditions by local users in Ghana. It passed all tests and exceeded expectations. The robust concept and its features perfectly fit the needs. Word-of-mouth spread the news about our prototype across the country within days.
