The electric micro mobility solution Bicar, which emerged from a project of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), now meets road approval regulations. The new edition is classified as a L2e (light vehicle) and is on its way to market launch in 2020.
From summer 2019, an exclusive edition of fewer than 50 units are to be produced. Subsequently, a small fleet of five to ten vehicles will be involved in a sharing operation in Winterthur, Baden and Basel in Switzerland from autumn onwards.
Subsequently, series approval will be applied for and cooperation with a production partner will be established so that market entry can take place from 2020. In addition, interested parties, both business customers and private individuals, can now purchase the Bicar three-wheeled electric vehicle.
Share your BICAR AG was founded as a spin-off of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) and the vehicle, which was presented for the first time in 2015, was further developed. A Swiss investor, two EU development projects and other partner companies were to drive the market maturity that is now imminent. The Bicar, a mixture of bicycle and car, is primarily designed for sharing and is particularly space-saving. No less than eight Bicars should fit on a standard parking space.
