Our story begins in 2013, when a team of university students led by Frank and Hans decided to build a car to participate in the Shell Eco-marathon. They built the Isa, which still holds the record for the most efficient road-legal car in the Netherlands. 

In 2014, Steven and Joep formed and led a new team of students to build a modular car. Their car, the Nova, was revealed at the 2015 Dutch AutoRAI car show. The main question the teams got at the car show was “why can’t I use a car like this?” 

After Nova, the team decided to join forces to bring their vision to the market. In late 2015, Merien and Guus, two serial entrepreneurs with extensive experience in high-tech multinationals and startups, joined the team.
