What People Say

Ben Lim Founder, SHADO
SHADO shape was envisaged during a brainstorming session in Laos. The key principles of our design was to develop an European class vehicle for emerging markets.

Understanding the challenges of poor road conditions and adverse weather of heat and rain coupled with a general lack of technical knowledge in Electric Vehicles, we formulated a robust ‘Ship-in-a-box’ design that allowed local distributors to develop their EV knowledge by partnering and leveraging SHADO.
