Innovating in micromobility since 2013

The E-TWOW Story

The E-TWOW – Electric Two Wheels (pronounced E 2 W) brand is part of a large international concept, with headquarters in China. As electric scooter manufacturers, we wanted to bring forth a new era in urban mobility, through our ingenious electric vehicles. The E-TWOW electric kick scooter is a practical solution to everyday life. It was developed by a team of engineers with a solid background in mechanical and electrical engineering.

Our journey as electric scooter manufacturers

The first E-TWOW electric scooter was built in 2013. The invention of the scooter occurred out of the necessity of finding a practical solution to get around in a crowded city.  At that time classic and electrical bikes were the only alternative to cars and public transport. However, bikes were inconvenient, being quite heavy and in many big cities bikes were not allowed  on the subway. As such, the need for a smaller, portable vehicle was undeniable.

We started with a prototype which we tested on the crowded streets of Shanghai. The revolutionary electric vehicle was a novelty at that time, and people were always stopping  on the street to ask about the scooter. It was not hard to imagine how such a vehicle could forever change the way people get around in urban environments. Given the fact that the kick scooter was considered a toy for kids, the electric scooter wasn’t successful from the start. However, it was enough for people to give it a try to convince themselves of the utility of such a vehicle, not to mention the enjoyment that comes with riding it.

In 2013, we mass-produced the lightest electric scooter at the time (weighing only 9.8 kg). We were the first to produce an electric scooter with a brushless electric motor inside the front-wheel. Our scooter was also the first electric scooter with electromagnetic brake and KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System). You can learn more about our achievements here.

How we built a new era in urban mobility

Each year brought on new challenges, but each challenge meant a new improvement. The E-TWOW scooter was the first scooter to integrate a kinetic energy recovery system, which was only used for race cars at that time. Its lightweight and the 3-point folding system, made it one of the most convenient personal transportation vehicles, as it could be carried and stored with ease. The initial design suffered little changes in time, as from the very beginning, the scooter was designed for optimal stability and maneuverability. Nonetheless, newer generations featured major improvements in terms of ergonomics and software.

At first we worked with different factories that produced scooter components, but shortly after, we decided that the only way to ensure the quality of the scooter, was to become e-scooter manufacturers and produce almost all the components in our own factory. Presently, there are three business centers: the China factories, and the sales offices in Germany and Romania. The China production center produces almost 90% of the scooter’s components (from the hardware to the software, the motors, all the plastic components, and even the batteries).

In 2017, the E-TWOW electric portable and foldable vehicle won a gold medal for the best invention at the 45th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva. Over the years, several other electric scooter manufacturers started producing similar vehicles, but the E-TWOW e-scooters continue to be the best choice, due to their high quality, their incredible maneuverability, and overall ease of use. At the moment, the E-TWOW scooter is the only electric vehicle that can be completely functional without a battery. If you take out the battery from another electric vehicle and you accelerate, you will ruin the controller or the brakes. With the E-TWOW scooter, you can take out the battery and ride it downhill without ruining any components. Moreover, even without the battery, you will still be able to use the brakes and the lights.

Shaping the future of electric vehicles

In 2023 we opened our second production center in China which allowed us to triple our production capacity. In the new factory we developed new e-scooter models and we created trailblazing concepts and cutting-edge tech that will shape the future of this industry. We have also entered the electric moped industry with a new all-wheel drive electric moped with a state of the art braking system. All the components and sub-assemblies that we are now producing are in alignment with the automotive industry

Our values


From the very beginning, the E-TWOW concept was powered by innovation. The electric scooters and mopes that we are developing integrate the latest technologies in the mechanical and electrical engineering industries. We also continuously invest in our R&D Department where we have gathered accomplished professionals from all over the world, who are passionate about shaping the world of electric vehicles.

Customer satisfaction

Our purpose has never been to design a perfect product. As electric scooter manufacturers and pioneers in this industry, we view perfection as a static concept, and we strive to constantly progress and innovate. Over the years, the E-TWOW electric scooters have faced many challenges. Nonetheless, through consistent tests and studies, we have continuously improved our scooters and we have eliminated all the problems that have occurred along the way. We wish to thank our clients for the help that they provided through their constructive feedback regarding the problems that they have encountered. We have always tried to thank our clients through adequate service and support, to make up for any inconveniences that we may have caused.

Building a sustainable future

Our vision of creating a new era in urban mobility goes hand in hand with our desire of building a sustainable future. Nowadays, more and more people choose to replace their cars with electric vehicles, and the electric scooter is one of the most environmentally-friendly solutions for urban transportation. Not only that but since it has zero carbon emissions, our electric scooters can also be used indoors, being ideal for large covered areas such as airports or factories.
