Reasons to Invest

The global Electric Vehicle market is growing rapidly with a CAGR of 20%, on track to increase in value from $100 billion in 2016 to over $350 billion by 2023.
Our lithium battery management technology and uniquely simple four-part vehicle body design combine sustainability and affordability into one product.
300 SAM vehicles were sold in Europe by SAM of Polska and SAM of USA plans to build on this success and expand into North America.

OVERVIEW


A New, Affordable Mode of Sustainable Transportation

The SAM is a small, fully electric vehicle dedicated to a new kind of urban transportation. It was created by our team of designers and engineers in order to open a new chapter in automotive design.

We believe that efficient single and two passenger vehicles are much needed in the world's evolving transportation model, and SAM is aimed squarely at this need. Our product is a two-seater, three-wheeled autocycle with a top speed of 55 mph and a range of 60 miles per charge, delivering an amazing and thrilling ride.

*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 


After receiving enthusiastic interest from customers in the United States, we established SAM of USA Corporation. Currently, we are working to build the first vehicles for marketing and testing on USA roads, so that in the very near future, we hope SAM will be available in North American markets.

THE PROBLEM


Global increase in demand for fuel-efficient, high-performance, and low-emission vehicles

Gasoline being a fossil fuel is not a renewable source of energy, and is anticipated to get exhausted in the future. To support sustainable development, it is important to develop and use alternative sources of fuel. We believe this involves use of electric vehicles, which do not use gas and can be more economical than conventional vehicles. An electric vehicle converts over 50% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels, whereas the gas-powered vehicle only manages to convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline. We have seen the demand for fuel-efficient vehicles increase recently owing to rise in price of petrol and diesel. This is due to depleting fossil fuel reserves and growth in tendency of companies to gain maximum profit from these oil reserves. Thus, these factors give rise to the need for advanced fuel-efficient technologies, leading to surge in demand for electrically powered vehicles for travel.

Urban Transportation Lacks Realistic, Sustainable Solutions


T
oday, most vehicles in the US market prioritize size and are powered by petrol or diesel. There are few truly sustainable, affordable options available. 

More than 
90% of all driving in the US is performed by single occupants in vehicles weighing a whopping average of 4,000lbs. The amount of energy required just to move a vehicle of this size is far out of proportion with what is necessary for the majority of day-to-day transportation.



While many commuters are seeking ways to cut down their carbon footprint, mass transportation does not offer an alternative that solves standard commuting needs such as door to door transport and individual luggage storage. 


THE SOLUTION


Highly Efficient Transportation at a Reasonable Price


W
e designed a light, efficient, all-electric affordable personal commuting vehicle. The SAM is perfect for short trips and commutes, meeting the typical needs of the average American household.

At roughly 1,000lbs, SAM is in tune with the practical needs of today’s consumers, moving people independently from point A to point B and back while prioritizing sustainability. 


*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 

SAM's efficient size and shape bring a host of other benefits to urban use as well. Its physical footprint is 40% smaller than the average car and its classification makes parking easier and less expensive. SAM can also take advantage of HOV lane access on the freeway.  
 
Our vehicles have a top speed of 55 miles per hour and a range of 60 miles, perfect for the average driver. Our intelligent charging system has a battery capacity of 7 kWh and charges up to 40% in one hour, and 100% in just 4.5 hours using standard J1772 plug. Charging also can be done from an ordinary, North American standard 120-volt outlet.  


*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 

A Product Designed with the Environment in Mind

We are advocates for sustainability and stewardship of our planet. The SAM is our contribution to support these goals – every trip in a SAM uses just 10% of the average cost of energy, representing not only significant cost savings for you but a much-reduced impact on the environment.

The SAM is also built with material that is 100% recyclable and sustainable. 

*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 

An EV You Can Actually Afford

SAM has a unique design where the body is composed of only 4 parts. Typically, a regular car is produced of around 150-250 metal body parts. 

 

As a result, SAM is pocket-friendly. The base price is $11,950 including the battery. In addition, based on the customer preference, SAM can be custom made with a larger battery and additional range. 


*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 



THE MARKET


A Unique Product in a Massive, Fast-Growing Industry

The Global Electric vehicle market was valued at  $171.26 billion in 2020, and is projected to hit $725.14 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 27%. Allied Market Research reported that North America is estimated to reach $194.20 billion by 2027, at a significant CAGR of 27.5%, as we anticipate to see the global market to reach $802.81 billion that same year.

Currently, electric vehicles account only for 3% of cars sold in the world. The EVs and plug-in hybrids available can be costly. By introducing SAM to the automotive market, we strive to meet the people and environmental needs. 

BloombergNEF  Electric Vehicle Outlook 2021


*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 

Our vehicle is technically classified as a motorcycle because it has two seats and three wheels, however, it can be used in most ways as a regular car for a daily commute. SAM stands out from other available 3-wheeled vehicles because of its enclosed body, yet it is still affordable. 

Our Initial Target Markets

We are recommending SAM as a potential second vehicle for households that already own a regular car. Why spend a fortune on a regular car or used EV vehicle, if you can purchase a brand new SAM for a similar price? 


*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 

Currently, our goal is to focus on markets in California and Florida, where there is the largest concentration of EVs. After we start sales in those two states, we plan to set up distribution and service networks in other US states.

OUR TRACTION


Over 300 Vehicles Already on European Roads

SAM was developed in Switzerland and gained recognition and positive feedback from users and experts around the world.

SAM of Polska developed a fully functional small-scale assembly line in Poland where it currently builds and services its vehicles. SAM of Polska has already manufactured and sold over 300 electric SAM vehicles!


*VEHICLES SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WERE PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND ARE NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 

 
SAM has EU Homologation and is approved for driving on all roads across the European Union and currently is being prepared for transit to the United States (Department of Transportation, DOT approval). 

SAM has a patented battery management system that uses Lithium batteries. Our simple manufacturing process guarantees low production costs and affordable prices.


*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 


For the last couple of years, we have been working on SAM Four (four wheeled light electric city vehicle based on SAMs unique qualities, simple and eco friendly production method). We plan to continue the development of SAM Four in the US and plan to start its production in 2023. We believe SAM Four is a vehicle that will revolutionize the electric city vehicle market all over the world.

WHY INVEST


Making All-Electric Transportation a Reality

Our vision is to become the go-to “city car” company of the world. The electric vehicle transportation market represents a multi-billion opportunity, and we believe no one has a product like ours.


Our patented battery technology and unique production method in the world, with only 4 body parts, allows us to combine sustainability and affordability like never before. 


*VEHICLE SHOWN IN GRAPHIC WAS PRODUCED BY SAM OF POLSKA AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET. 


Funds from this crowdfunding campaign will be used to start the production and sale of SAM in the USA. We intend to build an innovative manufacturing plant for electric vehicles in California in order to supply North and South American markets. We are committed to building our vehicles in the United States, which will bring new jobs and economic growth.

Join us as we provide affordable sustainable transportation to consumers while protecting the Earth.
