So Where Did the Utility Vehicle Originate From… Australia?
To get the information we have to go back in time to 1933 in Australia. Unfortunately for us at EMC, this isn’t referencing an electric vehicle. It’s an internal combustion engine! Though, we had to start somewhere for you to reap the benefits of our modern day EMC electric utility vehicles.
Whilst there has been conflicting claims of who invented the first utility in the world – it’s been rumoured that it was an Australian idea. A Ford car designer named Lev Brandt modified a Coupe, at the request of an Australian farmer’s wife. She apparently wrote a letter to Ford in 1933 requesting a modification be made. She wished to combine the farming needs of the vehicle with transport needs to the church on Sundays. Lev Brandt managed to modify the coupe by integrating tub bodywork in the back. Additionally making the chassis stronger so it carry loads. This prototype was then approved, giving the green light for Australian Utes to go into production. Since then we have evolved and shaped what the utility vehicle means in Australia and the world. For us at EMC – it means electric!
