Change is Necessary

We believe that efficient single and two passenger vehicles are much needed in the world's evolving transportation model and SAM is aimed squarely at this need. For the most part, the consumer automobile model is overbuilt for what is required. Consider, for example, that more than 90% of all driving in the US is a single occupant in a vehicle weighing an average of 4,000lbs! This is even true of most modern EV's today - the amount of energy required just to move a vehicle of this size is far out of proportion with what is required for the majority of day-to-day transportation. At roughly 1,000lbs, SAM is much more in tune with the practical needs of moving people independently from point A to point B and back.

SAM's efficient size and shape bring a host of other benefits to urban use as well. A physical footprint that is 40% smaller than the average car and its classification make parking easier and less expensive. SAM can also take advantage of HOV lane access on the freeway.

Finally, we are advocates for sustainability and stewardship of our planet and the SAM is our contribution to support these goals - every trip in a SAM uses just 10% of the average cost of energy, representing not only significant cost savings for you but a much-reduced impact on the environment.
