e.GO Life Comes with Several Performance Variants
First e.GO Design Shop Opens in Aachen's City Center


Aachen, September 16, 2017 – The e.GO Mobile AG has already accepted more than 1,200 preorders of the electric city car e.GO Life. To further promote the dialog with their customers, the company opened today an e.GO design shop in Aachen's city. In cooperation with the furniture store Mathes and the coffee roastery "Leni liebt Kaffee", a stylish pop-up store has been set up to encourage lively discussions on electromobility.

Because of the many preorders of the e.GO Life, the e.GO Mobile AG is already in close contact with their customers and could easily meet their needs. "Some of our customers would like to have more than 20 kW," says Professor Günther Schuh, CEO of the e.GO Mobile AG, during the grand opening of the new store. Thus the e.GO Mobile AG found a solution concerning a scalable drive together with its partner, the Robert Bosch GmbH.

The e.GO Life will be launched in summer 2018 with three performance levels: 20, 40 and 60 kW. The Robert Bosch GmbH replaces the previous 48 volt drive with a 230 high voltage electric motor. The basic version with 20 kW has a real range of 104 km and costs 15,900 euro as before. The e.GO Life 40 goes up to 150 km/h and has a real range of 114 km. The e.GO Life 60 accelerates from 0 to 50 km/h in 3.2 seconds and achieves a real range of 154 km with a 23.9 kWh battery.
