ZUV is an Electric Tricycle Created from 3D-Printed Plastic Waste

EOOS NEXT is the brainpower behind ZUV or the zero-emission utility vehicle. Currently, the vehicle is in its prototype phase.

The ZUV is an electric tricycle made from 3D-printed plastic waste. Rather than having to be shipped worldwide for its construction, it is made locally, thereby further reducing its carbon footprint.

Commissioned for MAK’s Climate Care exhibition as part of the Vienna Biennale for Change, the tricycle is made from 70 kilograms of plastic waste. The project’s materials were source from local supermarkets.

The New Raw collaborated with the project designers to power ZUV with a rear-wheel hub motor, eliminating the need for pedals or a bike chain. ZUV is complete with a large transport box that can hold two children.
