Munich, 19 July 2018 – The GOVECS Group (“GOVECS”), the leading manufacturer of electric scooters in Europe, has bought all assets of the ELMOTO brand from the company ID-Bike GmbH (“ID-Bike”). Stuttgart-based ID-Bike is an inventor and manufacturer of light-weight electric motorcycles. The acquisition allows GOVECS to expand its product range with additional e-scooter models, and it is consistent with the strategy of strengthening its position in the high-growth end user market.
Munich, 12 July 2018 - After the Schwalbe had made a successful comeback as an electric scooter, GOVECS has doubled the speed of this cult two-wheeler, making history once again. Never before has a Schwalbe (German for swallow) flown so fast. With a top speed of 90 km/h and a range of up to 90 km, the new GOVECS light motorcycle is also winning the hearts of a technology-oriented target group in search of adrenaline. One outstanding feature of the new Schwalbe is the Bosch-made drive system with a maximum output of 8 kW. In addition to unparalleled driving pleasure, the Schwalbe also offers high safety and reliability “designed in Germany”.
Munich, 5 July 2018 – The GOVECS Group (“GOVECS”), the leading manufacturer of electric scooters in Europe, continues to expand in the rapidly growing market for e-scooters. The Munich-based company is again boosting the fleet of the biggest French sharing provider Cityscoot in Paris, by delivering an additional fleet of 2,750 new e-scooters, the first part of their 2018 order.
Munich, November 8, 2016. Originally the Schwalbe was a Simson product - a vehicle manufacturer from the German Democratic Republic, the former GDR. It was produced from 1964 to 1986 in Suhl and, until it stopped rolling, over one million Schwalbe mopeds came off the production line. This made the Schwalbe the most successful single-brand European scooter in history. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, it captured the hearts of many western Europeans and became a cult object. Now it’s back, with an electric drivetrain by GOVECS.
Munich, November 8, 2016. From the summer of 2017, you’ll recognise the Schwalbe driver thanks to their wide grin. The reason – the unique performance of their Schwalbe. The sensational acceleration from a standing start to 45 km/h in around five seconds, will leave the competition slack jawed not just at the lights. The powerful drivetrain system, developed with the latest components from technology partner Bosch, sets new standards in the moped category. The charging time is another reason to celebrate, because in no time you’re on your way again. Technology for a more beautiful life: it’s a promise the Schwalbe lives up to.
Munich, September 26, 2016. The Munich-based company GOVECS has given the Schwalbe a new lease of life and in doing so is inspiring the entire industry. Together with technology partner Bosch, GOVECS has installed the world’s most advanced drivetrain in the Schwalbe, ensuring streets that are both clean and quiet. The first version of the Schwalbe will sprint through the streets at up to 45kmh. Fully charged, it provides an impressive range of more than 100 km, and can already be reserved online.
