SUNCAR HK was founded in 2015. It is the result of a very successful ETH student’s projects called SunCar. Each year, students of mechanical and electrical engineering of the renowned ETH Zurich take part in so-called focus projects. In 2014, they developed and built the world’s first wireless battery-driven electric excavator. This attracted significant interest from the public and the construction industry. In order to continue with the promising project “electric excavator”, SUNCAR HK was founded as a subsidiary of Huppenkothen Baumaschinen.
Today, the SUNCAR portfolio comprises three different electric excavator models. Besides its electric excavators, SUNCAR has developed groundbreaking electrifications in the field of utility and municipal vehicles. Thanks to its high level of innovation, SUNCAR has been honored with several awards of the solar and electromobility industry.
