Our uniquely sustainable approach
Thanks to its aluminium frame, the e.GO Life is particularly robust, torsion-resistant and durable. The torsional rigidity not only increases passive safety, it also contributes significantly to the e.GO Life’s superior handling characteristics. The uniqueness of the aluminium frame makes the e.GO Life one of the most sustainable cars.
Reasonably sized battery
The battery installed in the underbody is designed for urban mobility with its reasonable size. The raw materials used in the long-life lithium-ion battery are continuously and fully utilized. In order to further improve the ecological balance of the e.GO Life, the battery is reprocessed after use in the car and is given a second life as storage for solar power systems.
Long-lasting electric engine
The e.GO Life has a 57 kW electric motor from Bosch, which enables maximum torque from the first revolution. The rear-wheel drive not only keeps up in city traffic, but is as sporty as much higher powered vehicles with combustion engines. The quiet, low-vibration electric motor requires less maintenance due to fewer wearing parts and gives your e.GO Life a longer service life.
Smart selected materials
The high-quality polymer outer skin offers not only brilliant colour intensity, but above all economic advantages. Scratches are not noticeable due to the solid-coloured and unpainted material. The raw materials used can be separated at the end of their service life and are therefore recyclable.
Sustainable vehicle concept
Our vehicle concept is already geared towards durability in the selection of materials, such as the aluminum space frame or the thermoplastic outer skin. With a next-generation production concept, we can develop new models of our e.GO Life particularly quick and flexible without relying on high volumes. Both aspects are unique in their sustainability.
Its robustness and performance geared to everyday use that make the e.GO Life the hero of your mobility from day one. The option to share it with others whenever you do not need it yourself, not only enables fewer cars in our cities, but also leverages the optimal use of available resources.
Once conventional vehicles reach the end of their use cycle, the next phase is just beginning for the e.GO Life. In our refurbishment process we can replace wear parts such as the thermoplastic exterior with little effort, thus significantly extending the lifetime of the e.GO Life. Components such as the electric powertrain even have significantly lower maintenance requirements than conventional vehicle concepts and thus last longer than average.
Back to use
After the refurbishment process, the e.GO Life begins the next chapter of its use. For replaceable components such as the battery, there is a second life - for example, as a solar storage in home use. This way, we maximize the use of resources and sustainability from the development phase up till recycling.
