Tele2 IoT partners with Uniti to enable Uniti’s electric car journey
Uniti Sweden AB (publ) and Tele2 IoT have signed a collaboration partnership agreement, where Tele2 IoT will provide connectivity, platforms and advisory services essential for Uniti’s electric car journey.
Uniti is a Swedish company developing an electric city car. The car is optimized for high performance and agility in urban environments, with a user experience that replaces “press and pull” with “touch and swipe”. Holistic safety, sustainability, and scalability in manufacturing are the primary focus areas, enabled by the recyclable carbon fibre body and organic composite interior. Unveiling in 2017, with first deliveries planned for 2019, the aim is to change the future of urban mobility.
Tele2 IoT will provide secure and reliable connectivity solutions to each Uniti car. Data will be used to provide a unique and inspiring user experience trough for example diagnostics and infotainment.
“Uniti is a new driving experience which will result in a solid consensual discovery relationship with the users. These personal relationships will enable Uniti to become the first consumer electronics / vehicle company. The synergies in vision, culture and strategy shared between Tele2 IoT and Uniti are substantial. We are extremely happy to embark on a journey to change the world in this partnership with Tele2 IoT” says Lewis Horne, CEO of Uniti Sweden AB.
“One of the many exciting reasons that makes Tele2 IoT a great company is the fact that we are doing our share in making a significant difference for sustainability and our environment. Electric vehicles will make a difference in reducing carbon emissions and it is partners like Uniti that make us proud to do our jobs every day“ says Rami Avidan, CEO of Tele2 IoT.
