Stockholm-based auto manufacturer Luvly is taking inspiration from popular furniture brand Ikea by planning to ship its micro electric vehicle (EV) in a box. The automaker has introduced Luvly O – a micro urban car featuring small dimensions to overcome smaller roads and daily traffic. Luvly plans to produce the new EV at its main factory but will ship it in flatpacks. The assembly will take place in smaller regional factories.
The Luvly O EV measures 2,700 mm long, 1,530 mm wide, and 1,440 mm tall, and is claimed to require up to 80% less energy for production and use than a standard EV. The EV offers two seats and a 267-liter cargo space. It is powered by a 6 kWh battery, which is divided into two removable pieces that can be charged at home. Each module takes up to one hour to charge from a regular outlet in Europe.
