The characteristic centrepiece of a GOVECS scooter is the belt drive. We have based the entire drive system on it from the very beginning and spent tremendous amounts of time and testing for it. Now that we drove more than a million of test kilometres we are proud of this all-encompassing drive system, which makes a highly efficient energy utilization and an optimal interaction of the components possible and at the same time ensures unique driving experience. 

One of the crucial characteristics for accuracy, efficiency and time control of the drivetrain is the special angle of the magnetic Encoder-IC and a switch that is directly integrated in the die-cast motor housing. With that the torque is improved and the measurements can be carried out with a relative accuracy of +/- 1 LSB. This ensures a smooth control of the drive system during acceleration. When the driver actuates the throttle, this produces a flat power curve that is much more comfortable than the binary jerky movement of our competitors. 

Every year we succeed in making our motor even more efficient, so that they work with the same performance mapping at low speed as well. This, in turn, helps to continuously increase the life of the belt. The bigger pinion provides for a smoother acceleration up to the maximum speed at lower energy consumption.  

In combination with our own battery management system this provides for a perfect interaction of the technical components and leads to maximum efficiency.

Our latest OEM Project SWAY will hit the market

On a Sway, riders have direct control of vehicle tilt with their legs, through the patented linkage design. This makes riding a Sway a completely different experience from riding a motorcycle.


Back to future

First there is a fleeting brainwave, a sudden inspiration that slowly develops to a concrete vision and quite often ends up in path-breaking inventions or globally successful enterprises. Brainwaves that Thomas Grübel knows well and that – with hindsight – made him the pioneer of two-wheeled electric mobility.


City Check Govecs: Elektroroller ermöglicht emissionsfreie und flexible Liefer­logistik

Govecs, Spezialist für gewerblich genutzte Elektroroller ermöglicht emissionsfreie und flexible Liefer­logistik mit sehr niedrigen Betriebskosten. Und weist damit einer alternativen Zustellform den Weg zwischen Transporter und Lastenrad.


Interview @ How it Works

Govecs are a German company who believe that electric powered scooters are the future. Concentrating on sales to private enterprises rather than the average consumer, Govecs could revolutionise delivery services. Just imagine the reduction in emissions if every takeaway in Europe used electric scooters rather than the carbon equivalents that currently dominate the market. We chat to CEO Thomas Grübel about his vision.


Second production line

In Q1/2016 GOVECS established its second production line. The length of 33 meters allows a parallel assembly of up to 5 vehicles. Additionally GOVECS installed 12 workstations for the sub-assembly. The line is equipped with 2 gantries for the transport for heavy components.
