A Swiss spin-off from a University of Applied Sciences has developed an electric vehicle specifically designed for urban, short distance mobility. The vehicle helps to reduce the inner-city CO2-emissions caused by traffic. It is extremely easy and fun, as well as safe to drive in all weather conditions and also on slippery floors. The vehicle has a maximum speed of 45 km/h. It has the smallest footprint (1.2m2) and is the lightest (80 kg) three-wheel vehicle on the market.
Using sustainable materials for all its parts complements the sustainable business vision behind this invention.
The company is looking for a partner who is able to produce an innovative, sustainable material for the covering parts (front, roof, back, cockpit) of the scooter for a manufacturing agreement.
The material has to be 100% recyclable with a cradle-to-cradle approach (biological or technical circle, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cradle-to-cradle_design).
The material must have a good weather and UV-resistance and be very light.
Any production technologies (thermoforming, die-casting, laminate, film, ....) are of interest to the company.
