Another step in the direction of growth: With Porsche AG, a well-known automobile manufacturer secured 20 percent company shares in FAZUA GmbH at the end of January. In addition, there is an option to purchase further shares, which will allow Porsche to take over FAZUA completely. "Porsche's investment ensures a further acceleration of FAZUA's positive corporate development. Together, we will put even more pressure on the pedals to drive our vision of 'Better Rides,'" said FAZUA's management.

The drive manufacturer is known for breaking new ground in terms of developments and not simply accepting market conditions - design and performance always come first. And with this step, Porsche is also consistently pushing ahead with its e-mobility strategy. In 2019, the Taycan was launched as the brand's first fully electric sports car. Just under 40 percent of Porsche vehicles delivered in Europe in 2021 were already electrified - i.e. plug-in hybrids or fully electric models. Worldwide, the share was just under 25 percent. The Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer now wants to make greater use of this know-how in the attractive and fast-growing e-bike market.
