SQUAD SOLAR CAR
The future of sustainable urban mobility
Squad* offers an affordable, dry, quick and sustainable solution for your daily mobility needs. Commuting to work, bringing the kids to school, going to the sports club, social visits, shopping and doing groceries, without the cost and hassle of parking, traffic, and congestion charge. Very safe and stable with 4 wheels, full roll cage and belts, so no helmet needed.
A Solar Car charges itself
The Squad charges its batteries on direct solar energy from the solar panel on its own roof. 100% sustainable, no CO2 emissions, no smog (NOx, SOx and particulate matter). Clean, silent, wireless, automatic. all day and every day throughout its life cycle, when driving and when parked, free of cost. Even in northern countries like The Netherlands the sun gives enough energy for average urban use. The solar panel can charge up to 20 km per day in Europe. The average micro car usage is around 12 km per day. The solar panel works in any light, also in the shade. The vehicle is powered by electric motors and batteries so it also works in the night, in winter or indoors . When extra range is needed, the portable batteries can be charged directly from a normal power socket. The Squad is lightweight and very energy efficient.
Leapfrog the Grid
By leapfrogging the grid, many inefficiencies of the grid are avoided such as AC-DC and power transformations, storage and transportation losses. De Squad combines energy generation, storage and deployment in one single product. The solar panel produces DC electricity and the battery is charged by DC electricity, a very efficient combination.
Solar energy is not only free for the user but also for the community because Squad doesn’t need a special charging infrastructure.
A Solar Car for everyone
Squad is an affordable solution for most consumers with a retail price starting at € 5750,- ex. tax or through a monthly lease or subscription. There will be no parking fees in most cities, no road tax, low insurance fees and no congestion charge.
Squad is specifically designed for sharing and MaaS (
Mobility as a Service
platforms for (sub)urban mobility. Engineering of the Squad is focused on low maintenance and durability in urban use. The use of recycled materials is maximized.
No car drivers license is needed and no helmet.
The Squad offers a 2 person L6 solution with storage in the back. Optional seats for small children will be available on future L7 versions. Squad will have a modular design with options for young parents, seniors and disabled as well.
Safety, weatherproof, airconditioning
Squad offers a dry and weatherproof solution with a roof, windshield, floor and optional half or full size doors with windows. The doors can be easily removed for those nice summer days. Air-conditioning is offered as an option, only in combination with full doors. Doors can also be ordered in a later stage when needed.
Squad is a very safe solution in it’s class. With 4 wheels it is stable, also during rain and snow, over tram rails and curbs. Because of the high commanding seating position, there is good visibility over and by other traffic. The full roll cage offers good protection against roll over events and side impact protection. Squad has seat belts so no helmet is needed.
The Squad has a comfortable seating position with easy access. The dashboard offers smartphone integration for navigation and communication
City Car, park like a scooter
Congestion and parking in cities is a growing problem worldwide. An average car has a stationary footprint of around 10 m2, a very inefficient use of the limited space in city centers. A Squad has a footprint of only 2 m2. 4 Squads can easily park on 1 car parking spot. In most cities parking the Squad on the curb or special moped parking places is allowed.
The width of 1 meter and speed of 45 km/h allows for quick and easy maneuvering though the city, avoiding traffic and roadblocks.
