The future is LUV

Safe, sustainable Light Urban Vehicles are the future of urban transportation.

Game-changing technology

With lightweight vehicles produced of sandwich materials and flat-pack distribution, Luvly’s patented platform will revolutionize urban transportation.

Compared to electric cars, Luvly vehicles reduce the energy consumption used in production, shipping, and distribution by up to 80%. A vehicle can be assembled in a few hours, much like boxed furniture.

Tech in detail

One platform – countless applications

The Luvly platform lends itself to rapid and cost efficient development of brand new vehicles, as well as new designs on an already developed chassis. The patented technologies provide engineers and designers with a lego-like development kit, with which they can create new solutions for new applications with less effort than ever before.

Scalable

Flat-pack distribution, much like IKEA furniture, enables shipping in enormous quantities. The flat-pack also enables assembly in micro-factories close to the markets, which saves the transportation of assembled vehicles, reducing both emissions and costs tremendously. Since the construction doesn’t involve heavy parts, welding, or surface treatment, the micro-factories can be small and cheap.

Affordable

The flat sandwich composites, used in Luvly, are light, strong, and stiff. They can be produced from very low-priced materials and still have the desirable characteristics. The key to achieving the lowest cost and the lowest price on the market is by combining bulk, off-the-shelf staple parts with the Luvly patented technology.

Patented

The technology enables simple connectors to perform advanced functions, including snap-on assembly. Luvly has patented a solution to build three-dimensional sandwich composite structures from flat panels using a system of connectors. The panels connect to each other and at the same time to all types of standard parts produced by the millions – motors, wheels, seatbelts, body etc, as well as the thin, light, recyclable thermoplastic, body.

Environmentally unbeatable

By offering vehicles that can be made with very little raw materials, that make do with a minimum amount of energy in production as well as in use, the Luvly technology is environmentally unbeatable.

With almost all of the vehicle parts being recyclable and most polluting processes eliminated, CO2 emissions are a fraction of that of an electric car. Also, most of the plastic parts are easily recyclable and can be made from renewable materials. Just a one percent shift from cars to LUVs globally could reduce CO2 emissions by tens of millions of tons annually.

Bang for the bucks

Luvly is competitive throughout the entire chain, from production to distribution and usage. We strive to always offer the most bang for your buck, with a minimal environmental footprint.

Sandwich composites, used in Luvly vehicles, can be produced at a very low cost without compromising on quality and sustainability. Shipping flat packs to assembly plants close to the buyer, minimizes distribution costs compared to shipping finished vehicles. A 20' shipping container ships parts for 20 complete LUVs!

The time from idea to finished product can be compared to producing furniture rather than cars, resulting in unprecedented cost-efficiency.

"We have spent fifteen years rationalizing and simplifying techniques and processes to optimize vehicles for urban transportation. The result is the Luvly platform, a fundamentally new approach to vehicle production that will bring disruptive change to the urban landscape."
– Håkan Lutz, Founder Luvly

Maximum safety with slow Formula 1 technology

Luvly vehicles are built like Formula 1 cars, with energy absorbers and a sandwich composite safety shell protecting the passengers.

In case of an accident, passengers must be protected from excessively high accelerations. The material that dissolves the impact energy must be capable of dissipating enough energy. Thanks to our "slow Formula 1 tech", inexpensive plastic foam blocks are sufficient for maximum safety.

Is it safe?

Luvly vehicles are built like Formula 1 cars, with energy absorbers and a sandwich composite safety shell protecting the passengers. This technology offers by far the best-in-class passive safety, and we are continuously working to contribute to safer urban traffic, by developing our own tech and offering alternatives to two-ton cars.

Is a Luvly vehicle more environmentally friendly than a conventional electric car?

Compared to conventional electric cars, a Luvly vehicle saves up to 80% energy during production as well as in operation of the vehicle.

Do you have a showroom?

We’re excited to get more of you involved in a hands-on experience of our LUV’s. As we do not yet have a showroom, sign up for our newsletter to follow the journey and receive notifications about when and where you can experience an LUV first hand.

Will you be launching LUV models in the near future?

You bet. Subscribe to Luvly updates, including product launches, updates and events..

Where are you headquartered?

Luvly is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden..

When and where was Luvly founded?

Luvly AB was founded in Stockholm, Sweden, on June 24, 2015 by Håkan Lutz (Founder&CEO)  and co-founders Bjorn Lindblom (Chairman) and David Egertz (CTO).

Where will Luvly vehicles be built?

Our vehicles will be built in Microfactories close to the end customer. Our factories will have a very small footprint and unparalleled low capital expenditure. Factories will be operational within 3-6 months from investment, enabling rapid deployment worldwide.
