Next.e.GO Mobile wants to enter the Mexican market and is cooperating with Questum, a subsidiary of the Mexican industrial consortium Grupo Quimmco, to set up a production facility in the form of a microfactory in the Latin American country.
Quimmco plans to electrify vehicle fleets nationwide with the e.GO models, according to Next.e.GO Mobile. Quimmco is based in Monterrey, but the Aachen-based company does not provide any information on the location of a possible factory. e.GO Mobile's microfactory is ideally suited "not only to serve the growing Mexican market, but also to supply other e.GO locations on the American continent with components later on," it says.
Next.e.GO Mobile does not provide any details about the planned production capacity and investment in the announcement - not even about the time frame. In addition, it is not directly confirmed that the e.GO Life will be built there - even if it seems obvious as the only model currently available. There is only talk of "one of the most sustainable battery-electric vehicles".
While the Aachen-based company intends to contribute its production know-how, partner Questum is to provide local market knowledge and "access to key customers and large automotive fleets". "With this agreement, e.GO Mobile has not only found the right industry partner for the necessary access to the local market, but at the same time, through its long-standing supplier relationships with key industry groups and fleets, it is creating a growing order book that will support our growth ambitions in Mexico from the very beginning", says Ali Vezvaei, Chairman of the Board of Next.e.GO Mobile SE.
