Vinghen was founded in 2019 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The company will focus on the development and manufacturing of electric bicycles and push-scooters for urban commuting. The core values of Vinghen are affordability, joy of movement, and distinctive design!
Vinghen’s chief designer is its founder – Tsvetan Iliev. Its first product, Vinghen Ti1 was developed with the help of fellow engineer and designer Maryan Stoychev.
“I am an automotive engineer and I love cars. However, I do love them on the open road and definitely not in the city where they are slow, noisy, dirty, expensive and just don’t make much sense. I am a firm believer that micro mobility is the future of individual city transportation. Therefore I decided to start Vinghen and to focus on two wheeled electric vehicles for commuting. But I also wanted to make this good fun! Hence with our first product I made certain changes to the traditional push-scooter, so that it is more engaging, more comfortable, and just more enjoyable on the city streets and bike lanes. I also wanted to incorporate some of my own style into this product. Therefore I created a V-shaped frame that reminds me of a wave and a step that resembles a surfboard… well, once Maryan came on board he suggested that we make it look like a longboard and that’s what we did, as it certainly suits Vinghen Ti1 better!I am eager to work on Vinghen and to build a brand that will be associated with individualism, high quality, and elegance!”
“I am very excited to be part of the Vinghen Ti1 project. The minute I saw Tsvetan’s concept, I realized it is an idea with huge potential, so I accepted his offer to work on the design of certain parts of the push-scooter. With regards to climate change and traffic congestion, micro mobility is an important topic and Vinghen offers an innovative alternative to the traditional push-scooters. I have to admit that the finished product looks even better than I was imagining and I am positive that once we start series production, we will have one of the most distinctive push scooters on the market.”
