Eli reimagines personal vehicles by creating simple yet advanced micro-EVs.
70% of car trips in the US are now under 7 miles. Short trips in big cars contribute disproportionately to congestion, pollution and energy waste. We believe it’s time to re-think cars for short trips.
We designed our first product, Eli ZERO, specifically for short daily commutes. The 100% electric 2-seater is designed to hop-in and go and features max. 85 miles range, convenient level-1 and level-2 charging (6hrs and 3.5hrs respectively), all packaged in a compact, lightweight form factor. The result is exceptional convenience without sacrificing comforts of conventional cars.
Eli ZERO offers this category-defining driving experience for less than half the price of an electric Smart. This is made possible through proximity to our EV supply chain in China and efficiency-focused engineering evolved from automotive design principles.
Lightweight engineering— 50% lighter than Smart.
Energy consumption is less than 10% of gas-powered sedans, and less than 50% of regular EVs
Less than half the cost of conventional cars.
Designed to be street-legal in the US(FMVSS.500) and EU (No.168/2013)
Purpose engineered for micro-mobility— fun, friendlier, more agile and less intrusive.
