Next.e.GO Mobile SE & Sibros announce connected vehicle data partnership

Next.e.GO Mobile SE (e.GO), a producer of urban electric vehicles announced a partnership with connected vehicle platform company Sibros, to deploy connected mobility solutions into e.GO’s new vehicle models, with the aim of positioning e.GO to take advantage of the data-driven transformation of urban mobility.

The e.wave X is a purpose-built battery electric vehicle for the urban environment, using innovative spaceframe technology. Along with its sustainable materials and unique production processes, the e.wave X features replaceable and recyclable polymer skins and smart and exchangeable batteries that are designed to power a low maintenance and long-lasting electric drivetrain.

e.GO selected Sibros’ Deep Connected Platform for vehicle-wide data management and over-the-air (OTA) software updates to further improve the customer experience. The data collection will create insights and enable a range of connected and value-added fleet services, while OTA software updates are intended to allow all vehicles to evolve and improve the customer experience across the life cycle of the vehicle. Together, e.GO and Sibros are committed to unleashing the full potential of connected city mobility with a 360-degree user convenience and an ecosystem of value-added connected services.

“Sibros’ comprehensive connected vehicle product suite provides vehicle manufacturers with data-driven insights, empowering them to make informed decisions while helping to accelerate their efforts in product enhancement and user experience,” said Hemant Sikaria, CEO of Sibros. “Innovators like e.GO leverage Sibros’ deep and secure vehicle-to-cloud capabilities to help accelerate their journey and position them at the forefront of the industry. As a leader in the connected vehicle technology space, we’re excited to deploy our award-winning Deep Connected Platform on the e.wave X and grow our strategic partnership over the coming years, rethinking connected and sustainable mobility in urban environments.”

Connectivity is considered to be a key enabler for the mobility and smart cities. The partnership between e.GO and Sibros will enable innovative OEMs like e.GO to target business opportunities in both fleet management as well as to offer a broad set of services throughout the lifetime of the vehicle while enhancing the way drivers interact with their vehicles.

“The growing integration of multiple domains in the automotive universe, including connected vehicles, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication and ultimately autonomous mobility, are meant to validate the software-defined connected urban cars of the future and that is what makes us very excited about this partnership,” said Ali Vezvaei, chairman of the board at e.GO. “We aspire to offer our customers the freedom and choice to select connected services that fit to their needs, whether in charging, sharing, insurance or connected drive, essentially this may convert their e.wave X to a smartphone on four wheels.”

Sibros‘ connected vehicle solution will take advantage of various strategic industry partnerships, including Google Cloud for Automotive, which brings together an entire ecosystem of scalable vehicle-to-cloud solutions spanning data analytics, visualization, AI, machine learning and application programming interface (API) management tools. Automotive OEMs using the Sibros platform include a fast-growing list of the world’s most iconic makers of cars, trucks, buses, 2-wheelers and tractors, as well as disruptive new EV startups in the passenger and commercial segments.
