LAS VEGAS, March 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 2050 Motors, Inc. (US OTC: ETFM) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved the creation of an Advisory Board of up to five (5) technology, finance and business professionals to guide it into the next chapter of growth in the electric vehicle (EV) market. The Company is pleased to announce Aldo Baiocchi, Founder and CEO of DayMak Inc. (www.daymak.com), a leading provider of eBikes and related machinery, as the first member of this Advisory Board.
Said Aldo Baiocchi, CEO of Daymak:
Daymak has been a pioneer of the eBike market since 2001, when I simply wanted to purchase such a machine for my daughter and found none available or suitable in Canada. Since then, I have built Daymak and its affiliates into multiple locations across the nation and generated substantial sales over the years. We have multiple SKUs in the eBike, eScooter, eATV, eSnowmobile, and related markets. Looking ahead, we are integrating onboard solar recharging, Internet of Things (IoT), and wireless technologies to make our products the premiere eMachines available anywhere in the world. I am excited about the near-term growth opportunities at 2050 Motors and am particularly enthusiastic about our Companies’ ongoing collaboration in EV ride sharing and rentals, which I believe are each billion dollar or more markets over the coming years. To this end, I launched a ride sharing and rental portal to target the EV rental market, aimed at following in the footsteps of other similar sharing and rental plans in hospitality (e,g., AirBnB), ride sharing (e.g., Uber, Lyft), and eScooter and bike/eBike rentals (e.g., Divvy, Citi Bike, Bird, Lime, Jump, Motivate). I believe a partnership and/or combination of this platform with 2050 Motors will become a powerful force in this rapidly growing market.
Said Vik Grover, CEO of 2050:
I have been in discussions with Aldo for many months on the substantial upside potential of the EV market, especially regarding eBikes. As I have said earlier, the time could not be better to attack this high-growth opportunity and build a substantial player in the EV market here and abroad. 2050’s Phase I strategy in distribution is a stepping stone to a planned Phase II launch of B2C sales / M&A followed by a future Phase III launch of eBike ride sharing and rentals.
