Paris/Denkendorf, 16.12.2021 – Effective December 1st, 2021, REV Mobilities and pepper motion GmbH have signed a partnership agreement. Together, the two pioneers of electromobility want to bring retrofitting of commercial vehicles at OEM series quality to France for the first time. With this first German-French cooperation in the field of retrofitting, pepper is embracing one of the strongest bus and truck markets within Europe with high potential. pepper’s market strategy for France will be presented in the spring of 2022.

“REV Mobilities, as a pioneer and inventor of the electric retrofit sector in France, is dedicated to upcycling Mobilities. Given the challenges of decarbonization and low emission zones, public and private fleet greenhouse gas reduction, the re-industrialization of France and budget savings in general for individuals and companies, retrofitting is one of the best solutions ever. We are very pleased to be launching a partnership with market leader pepper motion GmbH for sustainable solutions for the electrification of the French commercial vehicle sector,” explains Arnaud Pigounides, founder and CEO of REV Mobilities.

“As part of our internationalization strategy, the French market has a similar potential for pepper as Germany and is therefore just as high a priority,” says Andreas Hager, CEO of pepper motion GmbH. “pepper is already active in other European countries such as Poland, Italy, Austria and Bulgaria. As a technology leader, we are convinced that our innovative solutions – in close cooperation with our new partner REV Mobilities – will enable us to offer French policymakers as well as all transport companies and fleet operators a fast and cost-efficient way to achieve the mobility transformation towards zero emissions.”

As a winner of several international awards for innovative technologies, already available in series quality, pepper offers electrification solutions for used commercial vehicles with its etrofit kits, helping them to an environmentally friendly, emission-free second life – and keeping them at the cutting edge of electromobility technology.
