Next.e.GO Mobile SE is a German manufacturer of electric vehicles and sustainable mobility systems based in Aachen. It was founded in 2015 as e.GO Mobile AG by RWTH Aachen-professor Günther Schuh.
In March 2017 the first prototype of the electric four-seater city e.GO Life was presented to the public at the expo CeBIT in Hannover. Since May 2017 reservations for the e.GO Life were possible and reached a volume of 3.200 pre-orders in April 2018. The factory for the e.GO Life was opened in July 2018 with an expected output of 10.000-30.000 vehicles per year. The delivery of the first cars started in May 2019 where Armin Laschet, Minister-President of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Prof. Ulrich Rüdiger, rector of RWTH Aachen University, and Marcel Philipp, lord mayor of the city of Aachen, were among the first to receive an e.GO Life. Since then and up until Q1 2020 over 500 e.GO Life First Edition were delivered to customers.
The e.GO was designed by the legendary Italian designer’s studio - Spada Concept - under the leadership of Paolo Spada.
