Aww, How Cute: e.Go Mobile Unveils Life Production EV

German EV startup e.Go Mobile has been in the news over the past few days as VW has confirmed it as the first recipient of its MEB platform, following the company’s decision to open its EV architecture to other carmakers.

While e.Go Mobile hasn’t announced yet which MEB-based model it will build, word on the street is VW might outsource production of the ID Buggy to the Aachen-based company.

Until we have an official confirmation on that, it’s worth noting that e.Go Mobile has a stand of its own at the Geneva Motor Show with four premieres on display. For starters, the company has brought the series-production version of the e.Go Life electric city car which enters production this month.

There’s also a sporty take on that car called e.Go Life Concept Sport, as well as another concept called e.Go Lux. First things first, the e.Go Life production car is a four-seater, short-range EV that will go into production in mid-March at the company’s Aachen plant, with deliveries scheduled to begin in early May 2019.

Featuring a space frame made of aluminum profiles and a plastic outer skin, the e.Go Life is light and very reasonably priced — for an EV, at least. Slightly shorter than a Fiat 500, the no-frills city car starts at €15,900 (about $17,850) in Germany for the Life 20 version.

For that money, customers get 14.9 kWh battery, a 20 kW (27 hp) electric motor and 121 km (75 miles) of NEDC-measured range. There are two other versions available (Life 40 and Life 60) that offer more power and longer driving ranges. e.Go already has 4,300 pre-orders for the Life EV.

The e.Go Life Concept Sport unveiled in Geneva envisions a better-equipped, sportier version of the electric city car. It features a bolder design, sporty chassis, and higher performance — although no specs were released. Additionally, it gets a better-quality interior with a panoramic glass roof.

e.Go Mobile also has two electric minibuses on display in Geneva. The e.Go Mover near-production concept previews a self-driving minibus with a capacity of up to 15 passengers. It will be built by e.Go Moove, a joint venture between e.Go Mobile and ZF, starting in April 2020. At first, it will be road-approved as a manually driven but in the future it’s intended to be autonomous thanks to the software and hardware architecture from ZF.

Finally, the e.Go Lux is a luxury shuttle based on the Mover. Intended for private trips, it can be used as a mobile conference or living room while on the move.
