We are TU/ecomotive

Student team based at the Eindhoven University of Technology that aims at shaping the future of sustainable mobility by implementing the most recent innovations into concept cars.

This is what we stand for

1

Showcasing possibilities

With the six, almost seven, cars that we have made in the last 10 years we show the possibilities within the field of sustainable mobility. The cars are a tangible representation of the hard work of a student team with students from 8 different fields. If we can do it, why would a big company not be able to?
2

Sustainability as our driver

The world has ending resources. We want to apply our sustainable view onto mobility because it is such a big aspect of people’s lives, but also a big aspect of pollution.
We want to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses by implementing sustainable innovations.
3

Daring the industry

With TU/ecomotive we want to inspire the bigger companies and dare them to be as innovative as we are. With only 42 students we build a new, innovative car every 1-1.5 year and we want to dare the big companies to achieve the same level of innovativeness. We showcase the possibilities on a relatively small scale so the industry is dared to implement the innovations on a bigger scale.

Inspiration to others

With TU/ecomotive we want to show the industry as well as the general public what the possibilities are regarding the future of sustainability within the automotive sector. We will reach the public by the use of social media and the website, being present at events and working together with schools. To reach the public, our car would often be used as a showcase of the possibilities that we see as a team.

Growing our movement

We want to make an impact within the industry and on the general public by making them think about the future of sustainable mobility. Together with them, we want to build a movement to generate momentum towards faster sustainable innovations within the automotive industry.
Main goal

Pushing the status quo

Our concept cars are great examples of what investment into the future can look like. Lets change the industry!

Our Story

Drive

Mobility is an important aspect within our day-to-day lives. With TU/ecomotive, we show that it is possible to make the mobility sector more sustainable by using different materials, different methods and a mindset different from the big mobility industry.

Rotating concepts

With every team, we tackle a different problem regarding sustainable mobility which makes us flexible with what we are working on and it also enables us to keep up with the newest innovations. We are constantly changing but our message stays the same, the future of sustainable mobility is now!

Student Team

We are a student team from the Eindhoven University of Technology that focuses on the future of sustainable mobility. Our team changes with every concept car that we build and currently exists out of 42 students from 8 different studies from the Eindhoven University of Technology as well as Fontys University of Applied Sciences.

Partners

To actually build a fully functioning car there is more needed than a great team alone. Luckily there are a lot of companies that have the same vision and are willing to partner up with us to make it all happen.
