Squad Mobility gets EU funding in GIANTS project

Squad Mobility has received a major EU funding as part of a tender won by the GIANTS consortium. The consortium consists of 23 EU partners amongst others Renault, Toyota Europe and Valeo.

GIANTS is a Horizon Europe project that aims to provide affordable and accessible mobility solutions to both emerging and advanced markets.

The EU call was named; “Frugal zero-emission vehicles concepts for the urban passenger challenge” and the Squad Solar City Car is the key platform of the 12 million Euro funded GIANTS project when it comes to urban passenger applications. Vehicle Integrated Solar PV and swappable battery applications are at the core of the solutions to be developed.

Squad Mobility has been granted 1,35 m Euro of the total budget to further develop and demonstrate the 2 person and 4 person platforms, L6 and L7, based on the GIANTS platform. Apart from the funding, Squad Mobility also receives support from supplying partners of the various components in the GIANTS platforms such as batteries, drivetrain, electronics, software and solar PV as well as R&D support from universities and research institutions in the consortium. These developments will also help Squad Mobility on its path to production in 2025.

Invest in Squad Mobility

In the next few weeks Squad Mobility will announce its public offering of shares on the Bondex platform by NXChange. Investments will be possible starting at 250 Euro, more news to come soon about this emission.
