“Today’s increasing people and goods transportation in urban centers demands automation, electrification, and networking. With our extensive systems competence, we’re enabling and shaping this next-generation mobility,” says Torsten Gollewski, Manager of Advanced Engineering and Design at ZF and Managing Director of ZF Zukunft Ventures GmbH. “Our flexible modular system solutions are attractive not just for conventional car manufacturers, but also and especially for new companies entering the mobility market.”
How this could look like is shown in the e.GO People Mover, which is developed and distributed in the joint venture e.GO Moove between ZF and the German start-up e.GO Mobile AG. Series production will start in Germany at the end of 2019 and is already being expanded with the goal of producing five-digit quantities per year. Now ZF and e.GO Moove also announce a customer and will work together with Transdev, one of the leading international mobility providers with 11 million customers daily customers, to further develop its Mobility-as-a-Service business based on the e.GO People Mover.
