Daniel Tonkopiy, co-founder of the Ukrainian electric bike company Delfast, expects support from President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to build a plant for the production of Ukrainian electric bikes.
He wrote on his Facebook page that he plans to establish a serious production of tens of thousands of electric bikes a year with a design and engineering bureau, production of metal, plastic, electrical and electronic components, battery assembly, software development and much more, which is necessary for the production and assembly of electric vehicles.
“I presented our project to the president, told him that the Mexican police ride our bikes. Zelensky immediately offered his help in transferring Ukrainian police officers to our electric bikes: “We will help, you can contact me. Yes, directly. My team will help,” Tonkopiy said, citing the president as saying.
He also said that Zelensky announced his readiness to help Delfast to build a plant for the production of electric bikes, presumably in Kyiv region.
Delfast already has a confirmed demand for tens of thousands of bikes from customers around the world, Tonkopiy said.
