Electro Product Innovation Company (EPIC) is a product development company founded in 1988 focused on taking ideas through the value engineering development process and turning them into concept demonstrators and pre-production prototypes ready for production development and market analysis.
The company was founded by aerospace engineers who recognized there is a missing link between past engineering innovation and the application of current or emerging technology. EPICs launch concept, the EPIC Saga Electroped incorporates these ideals by looking at the innovations of electrical vehicles from the early 20thcentury and applies modern electronic technologies to create a stylistic and adaptable platform. This platform supports today’s capabilities with a look at incorporating future innovations as they develop. With unique features, such as front wheel and two-wheel drive, Adaptable power storage integration, integrated control systems and adaptable suspension systems, the past merges with the present to create a unique modern take on electric vehicle.
