Newcomer Soventem to open an engineering centre at Mira Technology Park
Soventem is an all-new British built electric car manufacturer based in London, and opening an engineering centre at Mira Technology Park in the Midlands.
The new brand will be introducing an array of eye-catching carbon-neutral vehicles, alongside launching an ‘alternative to car sharing’ service for the UK.
Incorporated in 2019, the new company is to open an engineering centre at the Mira Technology Park in the Midlands providing Soventem with access to hundreds of automotive experts, cementing its position as a truly British-built manufacturer.
Each Soventem vehicle has been designed to stand out from the crowd, and to ensure every aspect of the manufacturing process is environmentally friendly. The carbon-neutral build utilises the greenest materials possible, while the lightweight monocoque structure is created using 3D printing additive manufacturing technology.
Scheduled to arrive on UK roads in 2024, Soventem creates EVs with drive systems that are low voltage for safety and they are also developing a power system, that by 2029, will not require mains charging or a visit to the nearest hydrogen filling station.
Alongside its carbon-neutral manufacturing processes, Soventem is looking to take a further step towards sustainable living with its ‘alternative to car sharing’ service.
Aiming to be launched in the UK in March 2024, with a crowdfunding campaign being unveiled later this year, Soventem is set to revolutionise the way people utilise their vehicles.
The service will allow users to utilise Soventem vehicles whenever they need them. The personalised on-board car assistant, LUCY, will remember each driver, greet them in their own language, and provide recommendations to maximise their driving experience.
With more drivers utilising car sharing schemes, it helps to reduce the number of vehicles on the road, lowering the overall CO2 in the atmosphere and improving the air quality, particularly in major cities.
Heading up the production of the Soventem range is Randip Bhogal, who has over 12 years of experience in the automotive world, having previously worked for Jaguar Land Rover and TATA motors, with three-times British Touring Car Champion, Matt Neal, as Soventem’s Brand Ambassador.
Robert Parson, Soventem CEO and Founder, added, “There can be no denying that electric vehicles are the future of the automotive industry. We are already seeing the UK government introduce legislation and laws to reduce the number of petrol and diesel vehicles on our roads and in the not so distant future, city centres are going to become electric vehicle only areas.
“Our mission is to not only provide drivers with the ability to purchase exciting EVs but also introduce a ground-breaking new electric vehicle car rental scheme, the ultimate, Alternative to existing car sharing services, Soventem could not have been timed any better!”
