Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal


TUGA Innovations provides solutions to urban mobility challenges with a new type of Electric Vehicle (“EV”).

A multi-national venture, TUGA was conceived in Portugal, incubated in Canada, engineered in the USA and is being developed towards initial manufacture and sales in California, USA.


Current product development objectives aim to advance the TUGA though established targets for quality, safety, comfort, and performance. Leveraging the experience and data gathered from building and testing the initial concept vehicle prototype, the Company focused on improving the overall engineering aspects of the TUGA, including the chassis, innovative expanding axle, electronics, batteries, suspension, and steering. The Company has incorporated these engineering elements into a next generation TUGA prototype, and the Company intends to carry out road tests in order to accumulate handling and performance data.
