The demonstrator is a living lab to pilot the use of electric mobility within utility platforms and people movers in real world applications.

It aims to prove viability, create awareness and collect data to assist with establishment of commercial processes. The project targets the replacement of standard vehicle platforms used in the provision of horticulture and technical services on Nelson Mandela University’s Summerstrand campus. Both these departments make use of small light duty vehicles to move around on campus. The use of micro electric mobility platforms in these applications will reduce the initial capital and reduce running cost of these fleets.
