Urban mobility is currently facing significant changes: More space for people and less space for cars is needed, urban transportation gets more and more multimodal, user behaviour shifts from own to use, and the need for resource saving, environmentally compatible vehicle concepts is rising.

In this situation, motor vehicles in the L-category – powered two-, three- and ultra-light four-wheelers – represent an interesting complementary solution to public  transport and to the “soft” modes walking and cycling – in particular if equipped with electrified powertrains for minimised local noise and air pollutant emissions. EU-LIVE – “Efficient Urban LIght VEhicles” – will provide a comprehensive solution for the next generation of electrified, cost- and energy-efficient light urban vehicles, covering a wide range of L-category vehicles to cope with the challenges of future urban mobility and to enable economies of scale.
