Lit Motors are designing and developing the future of urban transportation.
The company was founded by life-long builder and DIYer Danny Kim. Following a near-death experience while hand-building two Land Rovers, Danny was inspired to "chop the car in half" and invent a new vehicle platform aimed at urban drivers.
He and his team are designing and developing a self-balancing two-wheeled electric vehicle — currently code-named "C-1" — that combines the romance and efficiency of a motorcycle with the safety and convenience of a car, yielding a new and exciting way to get around the city.
