LEV1 - 3ME Technology

Certified Company ISO 9001:2016; ISO 14001:2015; AS/NZS 4801:2001
  • Project: LEV1 Prototype
  • Category:Mining; Military; Full System Integration
  • Dates:2016-17
  • Status:Completed
  • Website:N/A
  • Info:LEV1 remains an R&D platform for 3ME, currently undergoing an autonomous system integration


LEV1 was a proof of concept light EV, tested by the mining and military industry. LEV1 was a critical development for 3ME Technology's shift from on-road to heavy-duty and specialist off-highway projects. The LEV1 was well received by the target industries and supported the progression onto current projects. The LEV1 system remains suitable for integration across a variety of light platforms.
