Next.e.GO Mobile SE, one of Germany’s leading battery electric car (BEV) manufacturers, has reached an agreement to build its second micro-factory in Lovech, Bulgaria.

Around €140 million will be invested to “build a disruptive and highly connected micro-factory in Lovech.”

According to Next.e.GO Mobile SE, the factory will have the capacity to produce up to 30,000 vehicles per year, with production set to begin in Q1, 2024.

Moreover, the factory is intended to generate up to 1,000 new jobs in the region. It will be a “cyber-physical twin” of Next.e.GO Mobile SE’s Industry 4.0 factory in Aachen, Germany.

“This strategic agreement is another key milestone in Next.e.GO Mobile’s decentralised growth, leveraging our game-changing micro-factory and product architecture in transforming the global urban mobility. Our technology, the unique production and the entire eco-system that we create set us apart and expand our ecological and economic contribution far beyond our factories into countries and local communities”
— Ali Vezvaei, Chairman of Next e.GO Mobile SE

The overarching goal of Next.e.GO Mobile SE is to help ease the transition to zero-emission urban mobility through its BEVs.

You can currently buy the automakers signature BEV, the e.GO Life Next, in Germany. The company is planning on introducing newer models very soon, this includes the e.GO Life Cross.

Next.e.GO Mobile SE was founded in Germany but has plans to expand outside of Europe in time. In the past, the automaker has shown an interest in launching its “cyber-physical micro-factories” in Greece and Mexico.

The electric car factory trend continues, this time in Bulgaria. What do you think of Next.e.GO Mobile SE’s BEV plans? We want your take.
