Aachen-based electric car start-up e.GO Mobile, which now operates under the name Next.e.GO Mobile after being acquired by a Dutch investment group, has closed a Series B financing round of more than 30 million euros to enable the start of production at its plant in Aachen.
It will also support the company’s growth plans, Next.e.GO Mobile said in a statement. Production of the e.GO Life in Aachen is now scheduled for June 2021. Most recently, there was still talk of early 2021. Production will initially focus on the limited special edition e.GO Life NEXT, which will only be available to the first 1,000 customers and will cost 22,990 euros (incl. VAT, after deduction of the manufacturer’s bonus). In order to prepare for the start of production, employees are to be gradually brought out of short-time work.
