Company Summary

Softcar is dedicated to the development of avant-garde technologies that enable vehicles with very low lifecycle environmental impact to be conceived. These innovations have first been integrated in the 3-wheeler electric vehicle prototype developed for the Group TOTAL. Softcar will now industrialise a 4-seater electric car that offers both the lowest ecological footprint ever reached by a commercial car and unprecedented competitiveness.
