About Us

Today’s EVs with conventional motors and conventional suspension are too heavy relative to the payload they carry, they require larger and heavier batteries that cost more and take longer to charge. Shifting the transmission into the wheels like Hyundai’s Uni-Wheel, or moving the motor into the wheel like conventional hub motors, adds un-sprung mass that require adding 10X more sprung mass to maintain proper stability and comfort, making the EV even heavier and more expensive. That’s why light EVs have meant sacrificing space, stability, and comfort due to the physics of passive suspension systems.

The world’s first and only road sensing SmartWheels™

Indigo has invented the world’s first and only road sensing SmartWheels™ that makes light efficient EVs feel incredibly smooth and stable, yet more roomy and affordable, by changing the vehicle architecture. Indigo’s SmartWheels™ motors fit into each wheel to free up more cabin space, while providing two degrees of freedom controlled by sophisticated software, for an amazingly smooth and agile ride experience, with unmatched rider ergonomics and unit economics. Indigo’s light commercial EVs will help fleets and drivers lower their total-cost-of-ownership while meeting their sustainable goals.

Indigo is the only EV Tech OEM making road sensing SmartWheels™ EVs with roomier, smoother and safer rides for people and fleets, at a price they can afford. We are building a whole new class of ultra-efficient EVs designed from the wheels up for rideshare & delivery to start, then for consumer and autonomous. Indigo EVs have the largest interior space, smoothest and best ride quality, and lowest cost-per-mile of any vehicle in its class enabled by its patented breakthrough SmartWheels™. Indigo is working with fleets, TNCs, and Transportation-as-a-Service (TaaS) companies, to proliferate sustainable, desirable and affordable transportation for all.
