Given the current global environmental crisis, solutions to reduce quickly the CO2 emissions with little waste are more than needed. Electric cars are a part of the solution. Many European governments have decided to end the sale of gas & diesel-powered vehicles in the future. But, why wait for the future?

Transition-One aims at responding to the ecological transition in the automotive field by developing solutions to positively impact CO2 emissions. Transition-One converts small internal-combustion vehicles into modern cars: electric, connected and affordable. The retrofit is one of the answers to decarbonize our mobility in the face of climate emergency in Europe. Transition-One has developed retrofitting technology that consists of extracting all the specific elements to the combustion engine to replace it with a 100% electric powertrain. Transition-One offers a transitional solution: convert existing vehicles in the car fleet in France and Europe to increase the number of electric cars on the market and thus reduce the quantities of CO2 emitted during daily trips.
