Periodic Reporting for period 1 - ISAR (The world's first purpose-built professional all-terrain passenger Vehicle)
Reporting period: 2017-08-01 to 2017-11-30
ÍSAR is the world’s first high-performance passenger vehicle purpose-built for 46” diameter and larger tyres, yet is fully EU road vehicle regulation compliant. Being co-designed and co-developed with Iceland’s adventure tour operators and the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue, ÍSAR is purpose-made for end users’ needs, thus offering a completely new solution in performance, comfort, weight, energy consumption, cost and image. A major goal of the project is to reduce/eliminate fossil fuel use.
From the TRL6 mule we presented at Phase 1, we are finishing the build of the confirmation prototype which will be internally tested from December 2017. This vehicle will be lent to different tourism operators and Rescue associations for validation in real environment
Based on our financial projections, the project will generate a turnover of €6.29M and a cumulative profit of €3.14M with a ROI of 0.27 (ROI of 1.93 if EU financed) by the third year of commercialization, and creating 4 jobs linked to production, assembly, distributors, maintenance and marketing & sales team. For the full 6 years period the values would be€19.45M turnover (cumulated €55.58M) ROI 6.9 and 11 jobs created.
