So our journey began.

We first focus on urban logistics, moving goods around cities in ways that are sustainable, efficient and cost-effective. Our vehicle and its modular platform system, with easily swappable modular units, meets the needs of city logistics. From moving food to flowers to furniture, the possibilities are endless.

ONOMOTION’s founders, pioneer in e-mobility solutions, Beres Seelbach, former head of design at Mercedes and Volkswagen, Murat Günak, and light electric vehicle expert and engineer, Philipp Kahle, sought to rethink and reshape modern urban transportation. They put together a forward-thinking group of designers, engineers and creative thinkers who shared their vision of transforming urban mobility.

Trailblazing emission-free transportation
