We are frequently asked why our headquarters are located in Munich and the production in Wroclaw, Poland. There are sound reasons for this decision.

Munich is Germany’s strongest business location. The most important German groups are represented in “Isar Valley“. With laptop and lederhosen, Munich is playing in the Champions League, and not only soccer! It is an ideal location to offer and develop new mobility solutions.

And what about Wroclaw? As geographic centre of modern Europe, Wroclaw is the talent factory in engineering and high-tech. This is not only proven by the more than 140,000 students at the universities and academies of the city – the intensive influx of New Economy companies such as Amazon or Google underline Wroclaw’s development to the new high-tech and IT location in Eastern Europe. The direct international link is moreover of prime importance for us.

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.

GOVECS introduces the fastest production Schwalbe in the world

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”.

Connectivity is everything

Networking that is advancing at breathtaking speed is revolutionising all areas of our lives. This is especially the case for transport. Experts expect that even in the near future 80% fewer cars will be congesting the roads in our towns because more and more people are switching from their own vehicles to sharing models. And these are based on intelligent connectivity solutions.
