Company Summary

Weng Motors is creating a low cost, safe, friendly way for people to move around. Our mobility HotSpots bring together the first electric vehicle dedicated to local, a fleet management and social booking system for campuses, communities and individuals.
30% of US car trips are less than 5 miles. By focusing on local, our HotSpots can produce mobility by the mile, everything included, for less than just gas in an internal combustion car.
