Squad Mobility develops the Squad | Solar City Car. A 2-person Solar City Car for daily (sub)urban mobility. The Squad (Solar Quad) is being developed by two ex-Lightyear employees who share a desire to develop an affordable Solar Car for a large group of consumers. The Squad is already available for pre-order in the EU. Retail price starts at around € 5750 (ex. VAT).

The Squad will be homologated in the L6e category, Light 4-wheeled vehicles. Depending on demand and local legislation, an 80 km/h version will also be offered later. The Squad offers space for two passengers sitting side by side, and a storage compartment in the back. It combines the practicality of a scooter and the ease of driving a small car. Body panels and doors are deliberately left out to keep costs low, and for efficiency, ruggedness, durability and easy access. A full roll cage with seat belts and 4-wheel stability offer safety for all passengers. Two children (up to 1.25 m) can sit on rear seats where legall...

Emissions and traffic congestion are the two main issues in today’s urban mobility. The solar-electric Squad can charge up to 9.000 km per year in a sunny country with its own solar roof, making it completely emission free for most users driving circa 30 km or 1 hour per day for 300 days a year in an urban environment. Most vehicles in this segment don’t drive more than 6000 km per year. Extra range can be charged directly from the grid with an ordinary plug and/or our portable batteries. Extra battery packs can be ordered for increased range.

The space claim or footprint of a stationary car is 10 m2, whereas a Squad only needs 2 m2. Therefore, 4 Squads can be parked crosswise in one car parking space.

Robert Hoevers CEO and co-founder shares his passion for mobility with co-founder and Chief of Design Chris Klok. Together they have more than 40 years of experience in mobility, varying from scooters to motorcycles, FIA Formula E, solar cars and even flying cars.

The Squad is specifically developed for sharing platforms. Shared mobility users need easy access, intuitive operation and a safe, stable ride. Cities are looking for the smallest space footprint and zero emissions. Sharing platform operators appreciate the modest investment, the automatic solar charging, exchangeable batteries and high durability of the Squad. All these factors combined make the Squad extremely suitable for sharing platforms.
