This is where we are focused, leveraging our disruptive production technology to bring convenience, practicality, and affordability to everyday urban e-mobility.”


Isabelle Freidheim, Chairman of Athena, echoed Vezvaei’s sentiments, expressing pride in their accomplishment of taking e.GO, a distinguished German electric car manufacturer, public.
