We founded unu with a simple mission: To create the best mobility solutions that connect you to your city and enable you to embrace the full potential of urban life. Learn more about this and get to know the people and partners behind unu.
Our three founders Mathieu, Elias and Pascal have lived in big cities across the world and experienced our cities’ amazing potential. But they also had to painfully learn how limited city dwellers are in accessing that potential - due to the pains of urban mobility, which, at least for now, is slow, complicated, expensive and dirty.
We created unu with the vision of enabling everybody to access the full potential of our cities. That's why we have committed ourselves to designing and developing the best mobility solutions that connect you with your city. Our mobility solutions are meant to be affordable, fast, effortless, clean and appealing.
Three major mobility trends enable our final vision of the ideal urban vehicle: an electric, shared and autonomous car. We will realize this vision by implementing three product generations, mastering one trend per generation.

With our first product generation, the unu Scooter, we have created the first electric vehicle that is actually viable for everyone: It is affordable, easy to use and appealing.
With the second product generation we are connecting our vehicles. This way, we transform them into platforms for mobility services – such as vehicle sharing – while also expanding into further vehicle categories.
Once autonomous driving technology becomes viable, we will integrate it into our unu Car and realize our final product vision, the ideal urban vehicle.
Our values are at the core of our organisation: They guide us in every single decision we make – from developing products to talking to our customers.
In an industry of giants we must maintain a lean and agile approach, an unconditional drive and people that stick and fight together as a team to outperform and disrupt any Goliath out there.
We always strive to explore and embrace the diverse possibilities that the city has to offer and love building and maintaining a deep connection to people and places. Everything we do at unu seeks to enable and enhance these connections.
We see room for improvement in everything we see and touch and dislike careless, complex and unintuitive solutions. We always strive to make things better by making them simpler.
We believe that urban life is too important and too big to be tackled with a ‘closed mindset’. That’s why we want to play well with others and be radically transparent and authentic in what we do and how we do it. We always throw our full selves, our passion and our personality into what we do.
Our creativity is the result of relentlessly challenging how things have been done before unu and trying something new. With a foolish mind, the first questions when tackling any challenge must always be: “Why not?” and “What if?”.

Find out more about our manufacturing partner Flex and why we chose to work with them.
We work with Flex, the second biggest consumer electronics manufacturer in the world, who also counts Apple, Tesla and Google among its other clients. We chose Flex as our ideal production partner because they produce products of high quality and reliability.
At unu we care about workplace conditions, which played a huge part in choosing to work with Flex. Flex treats its staff fairly and invests in them, from strictly limited and controlled working hours and healthy work conditions to an in-house university and leisure activities.
Looking after the environment is at the center of what we do at unu and we believe that clean starts at the factory. For instance, the plant producing the unu Scooter is powered by solar energy.
