TORONTO, ON (May 5, 2022) – EV Technology Group Ltd. (the “Company” or “EV Technology Group”) (NEO: EVTG, DE:B96A) announces today that it has signed luxury French hospitality collective Indie Group to its electric vehicle subscription service, through its subsidiary MOKE France SAS (“MOKE France”).
MOKE France’s EV subscription model gives clients the opportunity to pay a monthly fee to drive a MOKE, without the hassle of owning a car and having to deal with insurance, tax, servicing, and more – offering a market-leading product for electric vehicle subscription experiences.
Indie Group is an iconic hospitality collective from Saint-Tropez, operating venues in key French holiday destinations, with the concepts of authenticity and celebration at the heart of its identity. Starting with Indie Beach House as their flagship business on the famous Pampelonne Beach in Ramatuelle, Indie Group has quickly progressed into a national hospitality player with an additional beach club in Ramatuelle (Playamigos), a festive restaurant on Place des Lices in the centre of Saint-Tropez (Pablo), a beach restaurant in the Escalet area (La Sauvageonne) and an apres-ski restaurant in Megève, managed by the famous chef Diego Alary (Indie Mountain).
“The team at Indie Group have managed to develop a hospitality atmosphere that very much appeals to an international audience: staying true to their local roots whilst continually revitalising the brand,” said MOKE France CEO, Willy Gruyelle. “For us, they’re the right mobility partner for driving a MOKE this summer: with a fresh perspective on the Riviera lifestyle, in line with the local heritage but always pushing the boundaries. We hope to drive with them in each and every new location they open!”

“We’re opening Café de l’Ormeau in Ramatuelle in 2022, and we will create a special MOKE for this new restaurant: what better than a MOKE to go to this relaxed yet distinguished part of one of the most-visited villages in France?” said Vincent Luftman, partner at Indie Group.
“After signing our first partners for the pilot scheme – luxury real estate players, Bo-House and Tardieu Immobilier – we are very excited about the potential for this product,” said Wouter Witvoet, CEO of EV Technology Group. “We saw there was a deep market for both the beloved MOKE, and accessing it through a subscription model.”
The bespoke Indie Group MOKEs will be visible in the streets of Saint-Tropez and beyond from June 2022.
