AURA is an all-electric concept car designed for nature
Founded in 2009 by Carsten Astheimer, Astheimer Design created ‘Aura’, an all-electric long range concept car designed for nature, with sustainability at its core and efficiency driving its design. Developed by a consortium of British companies, and funded by the Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles through the Niche Vehicle Network, the Aura concept demonstrates the UK’s leading capabilities in zero emission vehicle development.
The ambitious programme to design, develop and build a fully working road legal prototype was partially funded by the Niche Vehicle Network in conjunction with the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles, the project started on the 1st October 2020 and launched at CENEX-LCV 2021, less than a year later.
In August 2020 Potenza were asked to supply Astheimer Design with the vehicle powertrain and systems integration for the Aura.
