Manufactures and sells electric scooters
Vmoto manufactures and sells electric scooters to consumers (B2C) and businesses (B2B).
Manufacturing occurs at its wholly owned 30,000 square metre facility in Nanjing, China.
Vmoto operates through three primary brands:
• Vmoto - Vmoto’s own brand, aimed at the value market in Asia;
• E-Max - Another Vmoto proprietary brand, targeting the international B2B markets with a high-end premium product; and
• Super Soco - A third party brand Vmoto markets into international B2C markets.
As well as operating under these brands, the company also manufactures for a number of customers on an original equipment manufacturer basis.
Vmoto achieved record international sales of its green electric powered two-wheel vehicles in the first three months of 2018.
There were 2,114 units sold to international customers and distributors in the quarter compared to 1,678 in the corresponding period of 2017.
The 26% growth in international sales sets the scene for a strong year of sales for the company with orders for another 2,460 units in hand at the end of March.
