UNTERHACHING, Germany – Electric drivetrain supplier Clean Mobile AG applied for insolvency beginning February. According to the receiver, Dr. Christian Gerloff from the Munich based law firm Ott Gerloff, Clean Mobile has a good chance to survive. Therefore operations are continuing.
Clean Mobile AG was founded in 2006 as a startup R&D company manufacturing: “Innovative e-drivetrains for light vehicles.” The company is located in Unterhaching near Munich and currently employs about 20 people. After an initial success with its fast e-bike kit the company presented an e-bike kit for EPAC’s with up to 25km/h pedal assistance at the 2011 fall shows.
