History & Development

Mellow Mobility develops and manufactures light electric cargo vehicles that provide low cost, efficient and emission-free mobility in cities, with an additional advertising-based revenue stream.

They are based in Stellenbosch, South Africa, with an engineering team of about 12, plus another 13 technicians.

The development and manufacturing journey started at the end of 2016, where the first prototypes were manufactured. With these prototypes, the main manufacturing obstacles could be altered, and the second version’s manufacturing started in 2017. During 2018 the vehicles were tested in small scale pilot programs throughout South Africa. They are currently in the process of setting up for full-on production.
