Poland is one of Europe’s biggest producers of automobiles but the country lacks a carmaker to call its own ever since FSO stopped making cars there in 2011.
ElectroMobility Poland, a state-backed joint venture set up in 2016 by four Polish power companies, wants to solve that problem. Enter Izera, a new car brand named after the Izera Mountains in southwestern Poland. Last week, ElectroMobility Poland unveiled two electric vehicle prototypes: an SUV and a hatchback codenamed Z100 and T100, respectively.
The goal is for both models to enter production in 2023, turning the idea of a Polish electric car into a reality. When (and if) the EVs enter production, they will most likely feature some changes compared to these prototypes, though ElectroMobility Poland’s CEO Piotr Zaremba says the production models “will retain the characters of the presented vehicles”.
