What is L CITY
The passenger cabin roof and body of the loading space –koffer, are covered with monocrystalline silicon cells protected by polymer. Electricity generated by the L CITY EV Solar system can be connected in future with the SMART CITIES network. The use of natural energy from the Sun provides a good looking and innovative design.
The L CITY EV is a business-friendly transportation unit with multifunctional usage. Offering two to six doors, two to eight seats and a big cargo area that offers plenty of space, coming in different sizes, it is the best EV in class on the market. The electric drive system is limited to 90 km/h due to its main purpose of urban functionality. Optional trailer integrated system allows several L CITY EV to be controlled by a single driver.
The L CITY EV has a real range of up to 300 km (fully loaded 200 km with a maximum speed of 60 km/h). The integrated inboard charging system allows you to charge your battery over night with charge time of down to 10-12 hours to full – capacity. Additionally, Solar integration of the L CITY EV gives up to 17 KW power additionally in sunny days. Here at L CITY, we do not recommend fast charging. In case that you need more range we have a battery swap system. You can charge the battery at home, office, or any parking area with standard 220V electricity network via a normal household plug. We do, however, recommend the installation of a wallbox charger. You can find more information about the charging system under the heading “Charging“.
How can I preorder a L CITY?
Will a right-hand drive version be offered?
The basic version of L CITY UTILITY EV platform weighs from 1800 kg with a payload of 900 kg. The ‘open’ version L CITY SUN weighs 100 kg less. The 60 KW battery pack weighs 600 kg. We will announce the exact final details as soon as they become clear during our preparations for series production.

What are carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and what consequences do they have for climate change?
CO₂ is emitted through human activity, for example through planes, motor vehicles, manufacturing or burning fossil fuels to produce energy.
The man-made increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere makes the natural greenhouse effect worse, causing global warming. CO₂ plays a significant role as it makes up most of the greenhouse gas emissions caused by humans.
What does CO2 offsetting mean?
How do CO2 offsets work?
Individuals or businesses seeking to offset their emissions identify and record them, before obtaining ‘certified emission reduction’ (CER) certificates, by making an offset payment to carbon offset providers, climate protection projects or carbon credit dealers. One certificate represents a specific, quantifiable amount (usually one ton) of CO₂ that is saved somewhere. The advantage to this principle is that emissions are saved in the Global South – where it is most economic to do so. There must be safeguards to check that emissions are reduced on a permanent basis and that the projects are only able to be brought to fruition through the additional funding received through the offset mechanism. That is, if those units or certificates weren’t sold, the projects would be unprofitable and therefore infeasible. The term used in the industry for this core criterion is the ‘additionality’ of the emission reductions.
What certifications and standards for climate protection projects are there?
There are further criteria relating to duration and social impact that must be fulfilled on top of those for climate protection benefits. High-quality climate protection projects are characterized by having positive effects for the local population of a project region.
Examples of this can include access to clean energy or improvements in household income or health. The most common certification standards are the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), the latter of which was developed by the United Nations (UN). The Gold Standard is seen worldwide as the most rigorous certification standard in regard to the requirements placed on what a project does. Gold Standard climate protection projects must ensure sustainable development in the project countries on top of additionality. The CDM, on the other hand, puts special emphasis on the quality and transparency of processes when registering and realizing a climate protection project. The quality of what the project does and how it is organized is usually maximized in conjunction with the Gold Standard.

The Solar Integration. What’s a solar integration?
Solar integration allows you to cover up to 20% of your average daily mileage. We use monocrystalline silicon solar cells that are integrated into the vehicle’s body and loading compartment. Selecting the right material is our top priority. The components we choose meet the following requirements: A service life of at least ten years, resistance to environmental influences such as UV rays and water, break resistance and low weight. Usually, solar cells are laminated onto a 2 – 5 mm thick glass. However, glass has a comparatively high weight and low break resistance. We use polymer and glass fiber epoxy as substrate material. They are light, weather resistant and significantly more break-proof than glass.

What connections does the L CITY have?
- Via a Type 2 plug: found at all standard charging stations for a charge of up to 11 kW (AC)
- Via a household socket: for a charge of up to 6,6 kW (AC).
What are the L CITY EV charging times?
- From a household socket charging from 0 to 100% takes up to 12 hours, depending on the current of the network.
- From a standard charging station charging takes 7 hours to 100%. We recommend charging the L CITY EV to be done at home or in own private facilities.
