Niche Vehicle Network

The competition is open to niche vehicle manufacturers, system suppliers and design/engineering or technology organisations active in the UK specialist and low volume manufacturing sector who wish to collaborate on innovative, industry-led projects. 

Applicants must be able to evidence that an appropriate stage of development or technology readiness has already been achieved to meet the project entry criteria. For Production Readiness projects the consortium should already have demonstrated the concept at first mule or prototype level and are now aiming to take it towards a production-intent level, including demonstration on a zero emission UK niche vehicle.
