Swedish electric carmaker has opened up its website for those keen to get their hands on its first run of “Founders Series” Uniti One electric cars before they go on sale to the general public.
The diminutive two-seater, 100% electric car has been touted as a possibly groundbreaking vehicle for the EV market, with its price-tag expected to be in the vicinity of a very affordable $20,000.
It has even been suggested that it may be built in Australia, with Dr Michael Molitor, an Australian director on the board of Uniti Sweden telling the Select Committee into EVs last year that a production facility in Adelaide was under consideration.
Now, early adopters can register their interest in securing one of the first 2020 Uniti One cars to be made, as indicated in an pre-order email obtained by The Driven.
The 2020 Uniti One Founders Series will be offered on a first come, first served basis, based on those paying a full deposit this year.
Although small in size, the specs of the vehicle are likely to spark interest; with up to 350km of range, the electric city car would provide more than enough distance for everyday driving.
Uniti has also said that the Uniti One will come with autonomous technology, although that it will not be available for use until regulatory frameworks are in place.
With what is described as a “very limited production run”, it will be interesting to see how long before expressions of interest are closed.
