“We are delighted to be present at the Paris Motor Show and to share our vision on the future of urban electro mobility both for individuals as well as for businesses. Our e.wave X and e.Xpress vehicles have been developed with sustainability and total cost of ownership front and center; they intend to create the perfect symbiosis between innovation and economic practicality,” says the chairman of the board of e.GO Ali Vezvaei.
The lineup comprises a 2022 urban BEV e.wave X and a new urban delivery EV e.Xpress, situated at Pavilion 6, Stand 624. The e.Xpress has a cargo volume of up to 940 liters and a gross payload of 240 kg.
It is also available with an exchangeable battery and is expected to deliver an urban range of 230 km (143 miles) and a battery exchange for a few minutes.
The company focuses on “simplicity, practicality, and circularity,” stated Vezvaei.
“Offering an urban EV with a charging solution that is as fast and as convenient as traditional fuelling, yet not as heavy on the planet’s limited resources or the energy infrastructure, or providing customers with access to innovative financial solutions that can empower their sustainable mobility choice are reflections of that commitment” he added.
Additionally, the e.Xpress model is developed between e.Go and Ample, the American technology and energy solution provider.
e.GO also announced the start of a partnership with OneFor, a German fintech company. Instant personal car loans up to 25,000 euros will be available to customers wanting to purchase an e.GO vehicle, with fixed interest rates and up to 84 months of payback period.
Alongside vehicles, the independent automaker also developed its own electric vehicle battery platform called ‘e.’ It plans to build micro-factories the company claims “is a completely disruptive approach to producing electric vehicles.”
