We are working on ecological mobility for all. With this vision, Sergio and Gabriel founded the StartUp AureusDrive in 2017. AureusDrive develops, designs, configures and assembles e-bike systems with a focus on the commuter. With our affordable, robust and stylish e-bikes, we want to motivate commuters to switch from cars to e-bikes. We now have 12 employees and growing fast, and our e-bike community will soon be in four figures and they have collectively achieved a total mileage in seven figures – together we have reduced CO2 emissions by 150,000 kg so far.
AureusDrive’s goal is affordable, robust and stylish e-vehicles for all. Das Ziel von AureusDrive sind erschwingliche, robuste und stilvolle E-Fahrzeuge für alle. Furthermore, we offer delivery, pick-up service for the e-bikes (free of charge in case of warranty claims) and low-cost replacement rental e-bikes.
