GOVECS presents the connected e-scooter Elly

The demand for clean and sustainable mobility solutions is constantly on the rise. However, many interested parties are still hesitant to make a purchase, because the cost of purchasing high-quality E-products is a major inhibitor. GOVECS will change this now. At this year's EICMA, the German electric scooter manufacturer will present its new product, Elly, which offers the highest European standards with an unbeatable price-performance ratio. The connected scooter will be launched in 2018 with a base price of €3,330.

Schwalbe - Chronicle of a cult object

Munich, November 8, 2016. Originally the Schwalbe was a Simson product - a vehicle manufacturer from the German Democratic Republic, the former GDR. It was produced from 1964 to 1986 in Suhl and, until it stopped rolling, over one million Schwalbe mopeds came off the production line. This made the Schwalbe the most successful single-brand European scooter in history. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, it captured the hearts of many western Europeans and became a cult object. Now it’s back, with an electric drivetrain by GOVECS.

Schwalbe – technology made fun

Munich, November 8, 2016. From the summer of 2017, you’ll recognise the Schwalbe driver thanks to their wide grin. The reason – the unique performance of their Schwalbe. The sensational acceleration from a standing start to 45 km/h in around five seconds, will leave the competition slack jawed not just at the lights. The powerful drivetrain system, developed with the latest components from technology partner Bosch, sets new standards in the moped category. The charging time is another reason to celebrate, because in no time you’re on your way again. Technology for a more beautiful life: it’s a promise the Schwalbe lives up to.
