Urban Mobility Concept
The Urban Mobility Concept (UMC) is an innovative mobility concept; characteristics of the UMC include its suitability for short distance travel, fold-up functionality, for easy transport by train and the possibility to use it on public roads (in contrast to current fold-up/compact solutions).
Goals of the project
- As an alternative to the car, and in combination of car or public transport, it improves air quality and accessibility in urban areas
- Solution for the two important problems confronted by municipalities and businesses: traffic jams and local emissions (air quality)
- To play a crucial role in urban mobility services and white vehicle systems
- Helps as a carrier and demonstrator in order to address future mobility needs because it offers flexibility, portability, manoeuvrability and a zero emission drive train
