  • E-Schwalbe impresses in the test with strong drive system and stable chassis
  • The ADAC (General German Automobile Club) has tested seven models and published the results today

"We are thrilled that our Schwalbe has made it to first place! With our long experience in e-mobility, we can produce a product that impresses not only with its high quality components, but also with strong performance. The ADAC sees it the same way and we continue to write history with the E-Schwalbe", says GOVECS CEO Thomas Grübel happily. "The more fans the Schwalbe has, the closer we come to our vision of clean mobility in urban areas", Grübel continued. The test winner impressively demonstrates that noiseless and emission-free mobility can indeed be a lot of fun: Within five seconds, it reaches the maximum speed of 45 km/h.

“Made in Europe“ is reliable

To put this performance on the road, GOVECS works closely with BOSCH. The technology leader supplies the modern engine from Ludwigsburg, developed with the latest components. This gives the E-Schwalbe the strongest drive system in its class and the safest lithium-ion batteries on the market. A reliable battery management system protects against overheating, guaranteeing not only longevity of the batteries, but also a high degree of safety and the best possible range. For these reasons, the ADAC test winner sets standards in the mopeds category. "Made in Europe" confirms itself as a recognized seal of quality.

The fastest Schwalbe ever

Like the tested Schwalbe as L1e version, the model in the L3e version is the most powerful vehicle in its category. With twice the engine power, the Schwalbe L3e accelerates to 90 km/h in an instant. Responsible for this performance is also the double belt drive developed especially for the Schwalbe. This ensures excellent power transfer in both Schwalbe models. Another similarity with the test winner is the striking design of the retro scooter.
