The GOVECS Group is much more than an electric scooters manufacturer. It is a visionary and developer, a pioneer and manufacturer. And as OEM partner it is also the patron for outstanding mobility concepts worldwide.

Established in Munich in 2009 by Thomas Grübel and Nicholas Holdcraft (Co-Founder), GOVECS is today one of the market leaders of the branch. The customer can meanwhile chose from seven vehicle models in two series and different performance and weight classes. The core business consists of using the e-scooters for delivery services, sharing/renting, companies and commission projects for other producers, so-called Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). 

Just to give you some examples: The traffic wardens in the Dutch city of Leinden are moving around the city on electric scooters of GOVECS. If a hungry guest in Greece orders some pizza from the fast food chain Dominos, this pizza will be delivered with the silent e-scooters of GOVECS. In order to ensure that Geirangerfjord in Norway overcomes the tourist invasion every year, since 2013 GOVECS electric scooters are available to explore the UNESCO natural heritage. The electric scooters with Munich origin can also be found in San Francisco, Barcelona or Ibiza for an environmentally friendly and economical mobility. 

Along with the development of their own vehicles, GOVECS is a sought-after partner also for Original Equipment Manufacturers because of the high quality of its products, its engineer know how and its reliability. Producers of electric vehicles worldwide rely on the expertise of GOVECS. The service and consultancy portfolio covers the whole value creation chain and ranges from purchase to development and engineering work to the production of prototypes and serial production. 

GOVECS quite consciously choose to locate its cutting-edge development centre in the Polish city of Wroclaw: Wroclaw is the geographical centre of Europe and the technical talent factory par excellence. Founder and CEO Thomas Grübel found an outstanding and motivated team here that was well acquainted with the technology and production of electric vehicles. 

The most important sales markets include the Benelux countries, Germany, France, Spain and the US.

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.


GOVECS Plant –The biggest production facility for electric 2-wheeler in Europe

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 automated 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.

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.
