Expected delivery in the first week of June.
This blog post should begin with the most beautiful sentence of the year: We are finished and all bugs are fixed!
In the past few weeks we had to struggle with the last challenges, especially with regard to the altered ring-control and to find suitable suppliers. We have solved both. All parts for the first series have been ordered or are already in stock.
Now it is up to us to finish assembling all of the e-axles and to finalize the production line. We have also invested in our own large machines, which still have to be installed and adjusted on our premises with the aim of being able to produce with better precision and more cost efficiency.
The cardboard boxes for the delivery are already folded and we are looking forward to finally being able to send them to you with our boards. Summer is saved!
Test rides on the JayKay e-Board
Just in time for the delivery date, we will publish on our website all dealers where you can test drive our e-trucks and purchase them afterwards.
If you prefer to meet us in person, you can send us an e-mail to make an appointment at our headquarters in Kressbronn or you can take advantage of a visit to the trade fair and come to our stand at the Power2Drive, which will take place in Munich from May 15th to 17th, 2019 at the fairgrounds.
Protest for very small electric vehicles – on April 28th, 2019 in Berlin
The approval of miniature electric vehicles announced by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is a farce. Currently, from the few available models on the market, none of these vehicles are able to fulfill the conditions for a general operating license and thus an insurance. The protest in Berlin should draw attention to this.
In December 2018, Electric Empire, at that time still a coalition for action, organized the first protest of miniature electric vehicles in Germany. A lot has happened since then: the Bundesverband Elektrokleinstfahrzeuge e.V. was founded, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has launched an ordinance to regulate very small electric vehicles (EKF) in Germany and announced another special ordinance.
However, the majority of the up to 250,000 vehicles currently on the road in Germany and almost all of the models now available on the market will not be able to meet the requirements of these regulations. The discounts with which these are currently offered by large retail chains further exacerbate this problem.
In order to demonstrate how versatile electric mobility can be, Electric Empire is therefore organizing a further protest on April 28, 2019 to legalize all very small electric vehicles. The route leads from the Brandenburg Gate past the party headquarters of the governing coalition to Tempelhofer Feld.
