Once upon a time, 25 years ago… No, stop, wait… the TWIKE had its birth back in 1986 in Gelterkinden in the Swiss canton of Basel-Landschaft. About 9 years later, series production began in the French-speaking town of Travers in the canton of Neuchâtel. While the first vehicle exports to Germany were still carried out by the then Swiss manufacturer TWIKE AG itself, the German service partners organized themselves as general importers at the beginning of 1998 and have since been operating under the name FINE Mobile GmbH. The combination of letters stood as an abbreviation of the Forum for Intelligent and Sustainable Electric Vehicles and was intended to facilitate the import of further European light electric vehicles. The fact that it should remain in all the years only the TWIKE, was not yet conscious to the 5 partners at that time on the foundation day 25 years ago. The GmbH, founded in 1998, moved to Rosenthal in Hesse after taking over the production and also included the TWIKE brand in its name.
