Bernardo Urriza Arellano, Alfredo Quintero, and Gerardo Arizmendi, graduates from Tec de Monterrey’s Mexico City campus, have created their first smart electric car.
“It’s a Mexican project that promises to take on the world’s most innovative automotive brands,” Bernardo explained.
The graduates explained that their objective is to contribute to solving global climate change, while an emerging market is opening in Mexico at the same time.
“Mexico is one of the top ten car-producing countries in the world, but virtually none are of Mexican origin.
“The national employment implications are significant but, more than that, we’re passionate about using technology as a tool which can have a positive and significant impact on society,” said Alfredo.
Gerardo, Alfredo, and Bernardo worked for a year to deliver the first prototype of the ANSSATZ MARK 1.
“It’s a patented design which aims to show that the electric automotive industry in Mexico is viable, environmentally necessary, socially positive, and technologically desirable.
“Its design integrates the latest telecommunications, digital systems and artificial intelligence technology, providing users with a new, easy-to-use, and enjoyable experience whilst contributing to environmental and social causes at the same time,” explained Gerardo.

How did the idea come about?
The three graduates shared how they began this project, which is a paradigm shift.
“It came about when thinking about shifting automotive industry paradigms, from the geometry of the chassis to the fact that the vast majority of the CO2 produced by humans comes from the internal combustion industry.
“The goal of ANSSATZ is to create a more dynamic production scheme, limited not by marketing or logistics, but rather by the laws of physics themselves,” Bernardo added.
What’s more, they shared that the key to ANSSATZ’s design is its simplicity. It uses only a fraction of the parts required for the manufacture of gasoline-powered vehicles and follows a highly scalable philosophy.
They explained that the design promises to give the vehicle the ability to move omnidirectionally and, in years to come, to be able to drive itself.
“What we’ve all been seeking recently is simple to put into words: happiness. Happiness requires wellness first, and then motivation.
“That’s the premise of the project, and what motivates each of its members to implement positive change for the country and the world,” concluded Urriza.
