New electric Uniti One city car now available to order

The Uniti One EV features three seats, returns 186 miles of range and starts at £15,100

The new all-electric Uniti One city car is now available to order. Buyers can spec their cars and place a deposit via the firm’s online configurator now, with first deliveries expected by summer 2020. Prices start at £15,100 after the £3,500 Government plug-in car grant, so the Uniti One undercuts similarly sized rival EVs, such as the Honda e and MINI Electric.

Designed and engineered in Sweden, this new EV features a one-plus-two seating layout, with a single central driver’s seat and two rear passenger seats similar to the layout of a McLaren F1. Claimed driving range is a maximum of 186 miles on a single charge.

Early adopters who place a deposit of 50% before 30 November 2019 will receive membership of the Uniti Founders Club. This offers free software updates and enhancements for the life of the car.

The exterior of the Uniti One features a sleek aerodynamic design with narrow recessed headlights that incorporate LED daytime running lights, a steeply raked windscreen and aero efficient wheels. As there are only two doors, they are longer to allow access for rear passengers. The car features a panoramic sunroof, heated front windscreen and a rear-view camera as standard. Three no-cost standard colour options are available, with a choice of silver, bronze or black paint schemes with colour-matched wheels.

Inside, there’s a split-folding rear seat to maximise practicality. With the rear seats in place the boot offers 155 litres of storage, increasing to 760 litres with the rear seats folded. A touchscreen infotainment system and ambient interior lighting are standard, with buyers having the choice of upholstery colours.

Optional extras include full LED headlights, a heated driver’s seat, air conditioning and a six-speaker stereo system. Two interior trim levels are available, with a comfort spec model featuring carpeted floors, and a utility-spec model featuring durable rubber matting.

The Uniti One is powered by a single rear-mounted electric motor producing 67bhp, which results in a 0-31mph time of 4.1 seconds, a 0-62mph time of 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 75mph.

Power comes from a standard 12kWh lithium-ion battery pack, offering up to 93 miles of range. A larger 24kWh battery pack is available for £3,000 extra, increasing the claimed driving range to 186 miles, while a faster 22kW AC charger is another £3,000 option.

Both battery packs can be charged via a 7kW wallbox charger or by a 50kW fast charger. When using a fast charger, the standard 12kWh battery can be charged from 20-80% in nine minutes, with the 24kWh version taking 17 minutes.
