Jaunt creates beautiful electric vehicles for adventure. Recycling iconic four-wheel-drives and building a community owned car share network to explore Australia.
Our mission is to minimise car ownership and help drive Australia toward zero emission transport. Building shared adventure vehicles that allow anyone to explore the world without costing the earth.
Built for Australia
Australia is a country of towering gums, rolling vineyards, endless beaches and secret campsites. The only way to reach many of these amazing places is with a car, and cars designed to do just that are integral to our psyche. SUV’s and four-wheel-drive utes dominate Australian car sales though the majority will never go off-road. The dream of exploration and adventure is at the heart of Australian culture.
Current carshare does not support this emotional and adventurous side of travel. Working with local communities, Jaunt will place vehicles in beautiful natural locations and prove that experience is more important than ownership.
With extensive experience in design, technology and marketing, co-founders Dave Budge (Head of Product) and Marteen Burger (Head of Operations) have worked with some of the worlds biggest companies, combining emerging technology with beautiful design and meaningful storytelling for two decades.
They are supported by key partners and an advisory team from automotive, electrical engineerings, indigenous affairs, tourism and finance.
Space Tank studios
We are constructing our first prototypes at Australia’s only manufacturing incubator, Space Tank Studio in Melbourne’s inner north.
We work with today for design and digital technology, from branding through to service design research and in vehicle user interfaces.
We're an early stage startup and we appreciate any feedback. Get in touch if you'd like work with us, to test drive a vehicle, or just know a little more about what we do. We'd love to hear from you
