CEO Lewis Horne said Uniti is small, EV, developed as part of a three-year program, is made of recyclable carbon fiber and organic composite materials in order to conserve the environment.

The Autonomous-capable car, it is classified as an electric heavy four-wheeled, such as the Renault Twizy, which was made, with lightness as a priority. It is expected to 450kg in weight.
