EMC Squared Vehicles | Global Urban Innovator

Building Space Efficient Electric Vehicles

EMC Squared Vehicles is a mobility startup building space efficient electric vehicles. Based in Southern California, EMC Squared is committed to improving quality of travel & significantly lowering operating cost of vehicle fleets with a highly scalable platform suited for shared usage.




  • What innovation is EMC Squared bringing to the market?

“We have built the smallest enclosed electric vehicle in the U.S. with manually swappable li-ion battery packs which enable 24/7 operation.”

  • Why does scalability matter when it comes to mobility?

Suitability is equally important as scalability to us. If the vehicle actually serves the purpose a consumer is paying it for, the OEM should be ready to scale and bring it to a wider market.

  • Who are your target audience and/or who benefits most from your solution?

“The only constant is change - with rapid spread of digitization and apps over the last decade and the ongoing growth of e-commerce, the automotive industry will continue to improve and re-iterate its business model from ownership to service. This will shift mobility from your garage to your doorstep.
