MODU is an efficient, environmentally friendly multipurpose vehicle, intended as a tool for a sustainable mobility transformation. The completely modular structure adapts optimally to the usage scenario and is particularly space-saving. The basis is a flat electric drive platform, which is bolted to the steel space frame structure. The body modules are made of 100 % recycled thermoplastic and insulate the vehicle interior with their energy-absorbing support structure. Sensors and cameras enable autonomous driving. The interior can be completely adapted and personalised to the intended use by means of rail-mounted modules. All modules can be moved and exchanged in a few simple steps and optimally adapt the vehicle to its intended use. The modular design and the simplest possible body shape enable decentralised and regional production, facilitate repairs and promote the circular economy.
