Next.e.GO Mobile SE, the independent German manufacturer of urban electric vehicles, has announced that it has signed a global partnership with NR Sports, responsible for the career management of Neymar Jr. The Brazilian footballer will be e.GO Mobile’s new global brand ambassador.
Neymar Jr. will unveil the company’s 2022 line-up – named e.wave X – on May 5 at an event in Berlin, Germany. He will also collaborate on a number of initiatives to address electromobility and economic growth in Brazil.
Neymar Jr. plays for the Brazilian national team and the French football club, Paris Saint-Germain.
“I’m very happy to be able to start this partnership with e.GO Mobile, supporting their global strive for sustainable electromobility. e.GO Mobile is a very innovative brand, building electric cars that aren’t only unique and fun to drive, but also truly sustainable. I was born and grew up in a country with heavy urban traffic, so the positive environmental and economical impact of electromobility is huge,” says Neymar Jr.
Ali Vezvaei, Chairman of the Board at Next.e.GO Mobile SE, adds: “Neymar Jr. is the very embodiment of creativity and determination – what I call the Power of Purpose – and this resonates well with our brand values and is what brought e.GO Mobile and Neymar Jr. together. Now, joining forces, we will accelerate driving a wave of change towards a more sustainable and emission-free world; a wave like the ones you see in the stadium but electric!”
e.GO is the first independent European BEV manufacturer to successfully reach the thousand cars production.
The company is committed to contributing to zero-emission urban mobility as it further ramps up production in 2022 and beyond.
