Kumpan comes back with the Ignite

The insolvency of the manufacturer Kumpan in February 2023 was a shock for the e-mobility industry and especially for many owners of the popular electric scooters. For many months, it was unclear what would happen to the Kumpan brand and how the e-scooters that had already been delivered could continue to be serviced. However, the new owner - Lohia E-mobility GmbH - has now announced a new start with the further developed Ignite model. The new owner, who comes from India, has acquired the and is rebuilding the company not far from the old site in Remagen. The Kumpan electric brand is now backed by a twenty-strong team with a great enthusiasm for two-wheelers. Here we present the innovations that are planned and what this means for existing customers.


The Kumpan Ignite in a new guise

The new Kumpan products focus on riding fun, reliability and an appealing exterior design. The relaunch is taking place with a further developed electric scooter in the L3e class. The top-of-the-range Kumpan Ignite model (the model designation now without the 54 suffix) with a top speed of up to 100 km/h has been given a facelift and improved technical features that promise greater reliability. "In an electric vehicle, the battery plays by far the most important role in maintaining the fun factor over a long period of time. That's why we are introducing a modern, high-performance battery system," explains Michael Jung, new Managing Director at the Remagen site. Improved plug connections on the underside guarantee a reliable power supply. Charging from 20 to 80 per cent should take within two hours per battery.



The vehicle is powered by a 7 kW electric motor with a peak output of 12 kW and a maximum torque of 141 Nm. Finally on offer: the optional side stand. The vehicle has undergone numerous quality optimisations, such as higher-quality steel components with improved corrosion resistance and a revised 7-inch touch display.

The Ignite bears the new brand emblem and new lettering and is expected to be available to order in March 2024 in three paint colours: cream white, baccara black and lava grey with matt black trim elements. The realignment of the Kumpan brand is thus symbolised by a revised vehicle design and a new word and figurative mark.



Deliveries are scheduled to begin in June 2024.

Sales will take place via the main site in Remagen, as well as via an expanded dealer network in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands, which is currently being set up. The final prices will be announced at a later date.


Kumpan is now offering services for existing customers

Another piece of good news is the resumption of service activities for existing customers. Maintenance and repairs can now be carried out in Remagen by prior appointment. For customers with a long journey to Remagen, vehicle collections and deliveries are possible via a haulage partner. This means that assistance with defects is also guaranteed for older models.
