eLABS is a small and flexible company focusing on local urban mobility solutions which will help alleviate traffic congestion by advancing inner city transportation while making the commute more enjoyable.
eLABS will focus on current innovation in both in the electric motor and the energy storage sector to help develop a inner city transport solution based on the topography of the local surroundings. One solution with a selection of options geared towards specific market segments will be developed. A triple helix business structure will be adopted where academia, local industry/government and commuters will be seen as stakeholders in the development, production and sales as each is seen as possible target market. A Hyper Local approach to the development and production of solutions will insure a wealth share initiative between eLABS and local business.
