GOVECS

Late Stage Startup





Tagline

Electric lifestyle scooters, Made in Europe, "Born in Bavaria".



Elevator Pitch

GOVECS was founded with the objective to provide clean, efficient, reliable and affordable transportation on the leading edge of technology for electrical mobility. Top engineers and designers are working on the development of electric vehicles that combine style and True Electric Mobility.

The result of these endeavours is GOVECS’s portfolio: zero-emission vehicles - no fossil fuels, no oil and no compromise. All vehicles incorporate the advantages of electric mobility: They are silent, clean, highly efficient, economical and can be charged at any household socket. Due to clever engineering all GOVECS machines stand out with smooth handling and incredible performance.

Constantly increasing petrol prices, problems of global warming, increasing congestion in urban centres on the one hand, and the urgent need for individual traffic concepts while a growing number of areas restrict the use of polluting vehicles on the other hand call for a smart solution. At GOVECS we have developed a solution which allows a foresight in a better tomorrow already today.

Product

GOVECS products are different, different with respect to both, their European design/source and their main technical attribute: the drive train. We are using highly efficient and sophisticated permanent magnetic alternating currency (PMAC) motors with a low-maintenance belt drive, which makes the machines much lighter. The frame is designed exclusively for the use and purpose of electric vehicles, by means of which the centre of gravity is extremely low, thus leading to great manoeuvrability.

The GOVECS portfolio features:
- As well as a sportive, lifestyle product: the GO! S series
- A transport solution developed for cargo needs: the GO! T series


GO! S1.2:
High-quality scooter in the “50cc” compatible class offers great manoeuvrability, a good range and amazing performance.

GO! S1.4:
Its changeable lithium battery, with a weight of only 15 kg, and the onboard and optional offboard charging possibility allows total flexibility.

GO! S2.4:
It is the high-performance scooter with lithium technology. Amazingly, it is still in the “50cc” comparable class.

GO! S3.4:
First GOVECS machine competing in the “125cc” class. With the incredible torque of 114 Nm and the lightweight lithium polymer batteries the GO! S3.4 sets standards in performance.

GO! T series:
Electric scooters are especially suited to the commercial sector due to their low maintenance costs. With the GO! Tseries, companies can choose between scooters of all battery and capacity types, depending on their intended application. High-quality material processing and a sophisticated battery system provide durable, sustainable and energy-saving use in the daily business process.
Another plus is the flexible mounting of the cargo box. Any OEM cargo box can be fitted.



Why we are ecofriendly

Our goal at GOVECS is to offer the general public an alternative form of transportation that will rival any petrol-driven two wheeler. This intention is stringently pursued in the product development of GOVECS.
We produce and sell vehicles which are fun, promote an eco-friendly life style and incorporate True Electric Mobility. GOVECS products are environmentally friendly and engineered for top-end performance, range, and reliability.
Summarised, transforming transportation and at the same time decreasing pollution through True Electric Mobility vehicles.
