GOVECS‘s state of the art production plant with an assembly hall covering a surface of 4,000 square metres is located at the geographical centre of Europe – in the Polish city of Wroclaw. The Production line is 36 metres long and provides enough room for the parallel assembly of up to nine scooters. Work to full capacity thus means that every 15 minutes an electric scooter rolls off the production line.


The work ergonomics of the production line take into account the many manual work steps and provide optimal accessibility while at the same time ensuring an utterly safe work environment. GOVECS is VCA certified throughout the applied production processes. An ERP computer system controls the production with a just-in-time delivery of the components. The FIFO warehousing method safeguards smooth operation of inventories.

Wroclaw is also the place where the individual threads of the various suppliers come together. The components produced by our European cooperation partners in accordance with our specific quality standards once again undergo an intensive quality control here.

Along with our own production lines, classical OEM products are produced in Wroclaw as well. Our cooperation partners may thereby use the entire value creation chain of vehicle construction as well as vehicle development, ranging from R&D and prototyping to the final serial production or homologation. The GOVECS team makes sure that even the wierdest ideas for mobility drawn up on a napkin can be transformed to electric vehicles ready for serial production.

Why we need a new way of thinking

Mobility is undergoing change. In the year 2030, 60% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. The ever growing residential density, the increasing traffic volume and the increase in CO2 emissions associated therewith make clean and efficient transport solutions necessary. It is required to establish a new way of thinking and innovative mobility concepts in order to ensure clean inner cities and a healthier urban life. The car that used to be the status symbol of personal freedom will be gradually expelled from the cities and replaced by new mobility concepts. E-mobility will contribute considerably to the so-called “Green Cities“. Even though the idea of electric vehicles is not really new as such, the time is right and there is high demand to revive this technology, which has been developed already at the beginning of the 20th century, for instance in electric scooters.

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.
