I want to thank everyone involved, but we have to be practical and also realize that this is just a beginning, a great beginning, but for all of us, much more work lies ahead.”
The TUGA platform aims to address the many challenges faced when driving in, between, and around urban centres and metropolitan areas. The Company’s ’s electric three-wheeled vehicle design incorporates an innovative expandable rear axle supporting interchangeable bodies with plans to integrate digital connectivity into an advanced urban mobility solution that can be configured for the commuter, ride-share delivery, taxi, rental, and leisure markets.
Ross Plummer, head of marketing for TUGA Innovations comments, “This video signals the jumping-off point from which we aim to develop and activate our branding and digital strategies in the coming months. The concept provides so much to work with we were keen to get some actual footage released that shows the TUGA in action as well as the excitement and energy at the Company. So, on behalf of the whole team, we are delighted to introduce our video today.”

We are now entering the next phase of development and introducing the platform to several select development partners.
