INVEST IN ELI ELECTRIC VEHICLES TODAY!
The Next-Big-Thing in Mobility: According to McKinsey, the addressable market for micro-vehicles can reach $100B by 2030, from a mere $1B market today. Our goal is to be the leader in this fast growing vehicle category.*
In-Production With Increasing Demand: Award Winning micro-EV, fully developed and homologated, already in production. Over 100+ units built, sold and shipped to Italy, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. US pilot sales starting in 2023.
Ready to scale: Fully developed supply chain and production partnerships, established European distribution partners, ready to scale up production and sales.
"EVs Reinvented for Cities"
EV is the future, but what kind of EVs would power the future urban streets? As nearly 70% of the world population is projected to live in urban areas, to keep dense urban areas livable, future vehicles need to be compact, efficient, and affordable.
According to McKinsey, micro-vehicles are the “NEXT BIG THING” in urban mobility. Its survey suggested that around 54% of global consumers would consider micro-vehicles as their future mobility solution.
Eli is building a new breed of micro-EVs to make the most frequent short trips convenient, clean and affordable. Our first micro-EV Eli ZERO has already began sales in selected European cities in 2022, and we are planning to begin pilot sales in the US in 2023.
We need to scrap the “highway-centric” model of urban development and prioritize the ease and convenience of local trips.
Most car trips are short trips carrying just one person. Most of the energy is wasted on carrying the vehicle's own weight. Oversized vehicles are the root cause of urban congestion, pollution, waste of energy, material and public space.
As cities everywhere move toward a high-density, low speed, low impact model, it calls for a new type of personal vehicle to be created for people to conveniently get around in.
Eli reimagines personal vehicles by focusing on attributes that can drastically reduce emission and congestion in cities and communities, unclog urban streets and make cities more livable and friendly.
Our first model, Eli ZERO, is less than half the size of conventional cars, 3 to 10 times more energy efficient, and significantly less expensive starting at $11,999, with a range of 45mi to 90mi, depending on the option.
At less than half the size of a conventional car, Eli ZERO uses significantly less material and parts, This makes Eli ZERO not only affordable and low maintenance, also much more energy efficient on urban streets, and generates lower carbon footprint throughout its lifecycle.
Eli ZERO is classified as an NEV/LSEV in the US, with a street-legal top speed of 25mph. In Europe It is classified as a L6e vehicle with a top speed of 45km/h, and 70km/h for a future L7e version. Our Micro-EV platform architecture is tailored to be efficient on urban streets, developed from the ground up with automotive-grade controllers and CAN network-enabled feature expansions.
The latest study has suggested, the market for micro-vehicles like the Eli ZERO can reach $100BN by 2030. (Source)
In the US, 75% of car trips are under 10 miles, and almost 50% household trips are under 3 miles. Yet still, there are few options for personal vehicles purposefully built for these trips. A study by the Southern California Association of Governments concluded Micro-EV has the potential to account for 83% of vehicle trips under 5 miles and is the best solution for short trips.
In Europe, Eli ZERO is already certified to be street legal as L6e vehicles, and we’ve developed a growing network of sales! We are ready to scale up sales in Europe, while also planning to begin pilot sales in the US in 2023.
Eli’s team is made of designers, engineers and supply chain professionals with know-how and experience building golf carts, and EVs.
After years of development, we have developed special structure, techniques, supply chain partnerships, and material know-hows tailored for micro-EV products.
We designed our vehicle material and structure, around making our production process asset-light and reducing complexity for assembly. We are growing the company with an asset-light approach to maximize our capital efficiency, which is critical to build a sustainable hardware/EV business.
So far, Eli has already partnered with two established OEM manufacturers with a combined capacity of over 15,000 units per year.
Eli ZERO is just the beginning for us. After the launch of our first model, we are looking toward expansion into a range of other micro-EV products, services, and technologies, all of which will assist in our goal of establishing Eli as a future household brand for urban EV.
Now is the opportunity to join us and invest in the future of urban mobility. As we gear up for that “Ah-hah!” moment as more customers and businesses around the world are getting their first micro-EV, we hope you too are as excited about this electrifying ride as we are.
Invest in Eli Electric today.
Supported by over 2,600 investors, Eli Electric has successfully developed a category-defining EV that is efficient, affordable, and purposefully designed for modern-day needs. Starting from 2022, we’re ramping up small-batch production to meet surging market demand in Europe, and to prepare 2023 pilot sales in the US. Join us as an investor as we build more micro EVs, and become the change in personal mobility.

Hello Eli Family,
What an incredible weekend it was in one of our most successful launch regions - Tahiti! Our importer on this fantastic Pacific island hosted its first Open House event of the year, showcasing our beloved Eli ZERO along with other electric mobility solutions.

The event was an absolute success, drawing in numerous island residents and local businesses who were eager to explore the transformative power of electric micromobility for their daily trips. The atmosphere was electrifying as attendees experienced firsthand how the Eli ZERO can enhance their everyday lives while simultaneously reducing traffic congestion and helping create a greener future for everyone.
We believe in the power of collective action and the positive impact that each zero-emission ride can make, ensuring that our most treasured places remain unspoiled for generations to come. Together, we can create a world where our transportation choices align with our values, paving the way for a cleaner and more sustainable future.
Thank you for your continued support on this remarkable journey.
Hello Eli Family,
We are proud to share that the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) showcased the Eli ZERO as a shining example of a vehicle complying with Low-Speed Vehicle (LSV) regulations.
As pioneers in the micro-electric vehicle sector in the US, we are witnessing a remarkable surge in the adoption of LSV regulations across various states. The Nevada DMV, standing among the vanguard states, has featured our very own Eli ZERO on their website, illustrating what sets LSVs apart from ordinary golf carts.
LSV regulations play a crucial role in ensuring the safety, efficiency, and reliability of Micro-EVs, propelling the advancement of sustainable mobility. By establishing guidelines for design, performance, and operational requirements, they pave the way for a greener future.
From its inception, the Eli ZERO was meticulously designed as a Low-Speed Vehicle (LSV). Every aspect of its specifications adheres rigorously to LSV regulations, allowing us to take immense pride in offering drivers peace of mind while propelling the micro-EV revolution in urban environments, gated communities, and small towns.
By supporting us, you not only embrace a promising venture with high potential returns but also contribute to reshaping daily trips.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to join our journey and make a small investment with a big impact.
Get ready for a transportation revolution over the next decade! The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) and low-speed electric vehicles (LSVs) is shaking up the industry and opening new doors for urban mobility.
This is an era of rapid change. According to industry experts, the upcoming decade is expected to witness one of the most significant transformations in transportation history. In the US, roughly 60% of journeys are under six miles, and even the average speed in urban areas is lower than you would think. As Los Angeles Times pointed out, “The average speed of a car in Midtown Manhattan is 4.7 mph—barely faster than walking.” As people look for affordable, practical, and eco-friendly ways to get around, the demand for advanced micro-EVs like the ELI ZERO is set to soar.
It is projected that “by 2030 EVs represent more than 60% of vehicles sold globally” (IEA 2022, Paris, Technology Report, License: CC BY 4.0). Within this trend, the global market for micro-vehicles is booming: according to McKinsey, the addressable market can reach $100Billion by 2030. As this market expands, people are becoming more aware of the advantages of electric micro-cars.
Many media outlets and experts have highlighted the transformative potential of LSVs for urban mobility. As reported by Bloomberg, “Especially as car ownership has grown more expensive, minicars pose a disruptive threat to traditional carmakers that have shifted toward ever-larger SUVs and trucks.” Fast Company emphasizes that “the prospect of a rapid shift toward small vehicles should be keeping auto executives awake at night. But from a societal perspective, it could be a dream come true." These sentiments are echoed by other publications, including Electrek and Forbes, which all recognize LSVs as sustainable and convenient alternatives for urban transportation.
As we witness the accelerated shift to EVs and the growing demand for LSVs, Eli Electric Vehicles is well-positioned to seize the opportunities presented by this transformative era. By embracing these changes, we can create a cleaner, more efficient, and accessible transportation landscape for all.
Thank you for your support on this journey—your investment helps bring our game-changing compact electric vehicles to a growing number of cities and local communities worldwide faster.

Hello, Eli Family.
We have some exciting news to share with you today. Eli ZERO will soon be available for purchase in Estonia, an up-and-coming Nordic market that offers a perfect fit for our micro-urban EV. This opportunity aligns with our expansion plans to make Eli ZERO accessible to an increasing number of people internationally.
Estonia is an ideal starting point for the Eli ZERO in the Nordic region of Europe, with its compact urban areas which make up the majority of the population centers. The country is also known for a strong trend toward electrification—revenue in the electric vehicles market is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2023-2027) of 19.10%, resulting in a projected market volume of US$100.40m by 2027.
These projections are supported by the government’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70% in 2030 relative to their 1990 levels, with the goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050.
To introduce the Eli ZERO in this growing market, we are thrilled to make the debut at the eCarExpo on May 12th-14th in the capital, Tallinn, with our new local distributor, alongside major automakers.
As we expand our reach globally, we are excited to continue bringing the Eli ZERO to markets that are looking for innovative, sustainable solutions to urban mobility challenges. With the support of our investor community, we believe that our micro-EV has the potential to transform the way people commute and move around their cities.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements. To learn more about Regulation Crowdfunding, click here, and for Regulation A+, click here.
