H2020-LC-GV-08-2020: Next generation electrified vehicles for urban and suburban use

Proposals should address only one of the following subtopics (except in the case of modular concepts capable of addressing subtopics 2 and 3 respectively with the same platform):

1) Urban light personal mobility: development of vehicles such as monowheels, electric scooters and hoverboards suggests to explore innovative micro vehicle designs suitable for urban/sub-urban dweller and commuter’ needs with the option for usage within shared mobility schemes. These vehicles will be aimed at improving specific urban usage needs such as decreased congestion, elimination of parking and recharging need in case weight and volume are low enough to allow the user to carry them at all times. The proposers should demonstrate their capacity to have a market ready product by the end of the project.

2) Light and flexible multipassenger vehicles (e.g. collective or individual, owned or shared up to M1 category) with high safety for passengers and vulnerable road users and specific features to facilitate shared use such as autonomous-capable vehicles with automated relocation to charging points or areas with insufficient vehicle density.

3) Rightsized vehicles for commercial uses (up to N1 category) such as last-/first-mile delivery, construction and maintenance support (masons, plumbers, HVAC technicians etc.), that are suitable specifically for urban scenarios.

For all these subtopics, fully integrated safety should be considered as a priority, including crash resistance.
