Chanje is a California-based OEM delivering medium duty electric vehicles and turnkey energy infrastructure services for the last mile. Our opportunity is bigger than simply replacing fossil fuel vehicles with electric. Our vision is to create sustainable urban solutions that improve the last mile and positively impact people, businesses, and communities.

Our flagship platform is the first electric medium duty panel van designed and built from the ground up to meet the specific needs of the last mile industry. This approach allows us to offer maximum payload, maximum cargo capacity, the most efficient powertrain, a comfortable driving experience… and it happens to be fully electric. The V8070 is a no compromise solution.

#OUREntrepidNetwork – Introducing Ashish Kumar, Waleed Said and Hybrid-Electric Aircraft Company Zunum Aero


Electric Propulsion Systems will Revolutionize Regional Air Transport

In their own words (source – www.zunum.aero)

Imagine leaving your doorstep in San Jose at 7 AM and making it to a 9:30 AM meeting in Pasadena. With Zunum Aero, simply drive to a nearby airfield and walk to your aircraft with bags in tow, for a trip that will take half the time and at a much lower fare. Or skip the meeting altogether, and be on the slopes in Tahoe by 8:40 AM for $100 round-trip, and back home the same evening.

[Founder/CEO Ashish Kumar, CTO Waleed Said, PhD and the Zunum Aero team] are building a family of commercial hybrid-to-electric aircraft designed for regional transit, and powered by quiet range-optimized powertrain and propulsion technologies. Our vision is to develop 1,000-mile electric air networks to bring fast and affordable travel to every community. Check out our website for more!

OUR Entrepid Network – Introducing Ben Doherty, Zac Maurais and Favor


Building a community one FAVOR at a time

Now based in Austin, Texas, with operations in major cities in Arizona, Colorado, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, the company was the 2016 SXSW official on-demand delivery service.
