Get To Know Us

Our mission is to educate and inspire new generations of leaders, innovators and citizens, while promoting the switch to clean, sustainable energy.


At Switch Vehicles, we manufacture a fun, sporty and safe Electric Vehicle created as a “build-it-yourself” kit for education. Our all-inclusive program is called The Switch Lab™ – which challenges students to build a full size, road-worthy electric vehicle as a classroom project. Used in over 300+ high schools, colleges and junior high schools across the US, the program delivers high quality project-based learning with real world experience and impact. Founded in 2013, we practice what we teach, with EV Kits that are hand-crafted in our Sebastopol, CA, shop.
