Baker McKenzie has advised ElectroMobility Poland SA on agreements with Torino Design and EDAG Engineering Gmbh regarding the construction and assembly of electric cars in Poland.
ElectroMobility Poland SA was established in October 2016 as an initiative of four Polish energy companies: PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna SA, Energa SA, Enea SA, and Tauron Polska Energia SA. Each of the entities acquired 25% of the shares in the company. According to the company's plans, the manufacture of the first Polish electric car is set to start in 2023.
“On July 28, ElectroMobility Poland SA introduced a new automotive brand called Izera and prototypes of the first Polish electric car,” Baker McKenzie reported. “Two versions of the car were presented: a hatchback and an SUV. Designers from the Italian stylistic studio, Torino Design — one of the most renowned studios in the automotive industry — are responsible for the design of the prototypes. Tadeusz Jelec, a world-renowned car designer, is a consultant.”
"This is a very important stage of the project, so we wanted to share information on the results of our work with a large audience," said Piotr Zaremba, president of ElectroMobility Poland SA. "The involvement in our project of a team of outstanding specialists, who have many years of experience in the automotive industry, is invaluable. Thanks to this, the prototypes stand out due to their interesting, modern design and technological solutions at a global level."
Baker McKenzie’s team included Counsel Jakub Falkowski and Senior Associate Monika Gebel.
