Affordable German electric city car from e.Go Mobile
Another electric city car will evolve from German e.Go Mobile, and will be distinguished for the very low price that will be available for sale. E.Go Mobile was founded by Professor Günther Schuh, the man behind the best-selling electric van in Europe – the StreetScooter sold to Deutsche Post in 2014.
The first e.Go model to be built, called Life, will feature a basic equipment and space for four people. It will be a city car, with a slightly smaller body than the Fiat 500, and will be available in three different battery versions.
The first and basic model will be the e.Go Life 20 with a 14.9 kWh battery, and will supply a 20 kW (27 hp) electric motor with the NEDC range reaching 121 km. This version starts from 15,900 euros in Germany.
The second version, called e.Go Life 40, will use a 12.1 kWh battery and the engine will have an increased power of 40 kW (54 hp) while its range will be 142 km. The starting value is set to 17,400 euro. Finally, the strongest e.Go Life 60 has a 12.5 kWh battery and a 60 kW (80 hp for 184 km, with a base price of 19,900 euros).
