A STORY ABOUT A COMPANY BUILT IN AUSTIN

Ayro, Inc. is a company built upon a vision. A vision of doing things differently. Back in 2017, a group of entrepreneurs, executives and investors first founded Austin Electric Vehicles which became AEV Technologies, Inc. The concept was to create sustainable electric solutions for Campus Management, Last Mile Delivery, Urban Commuting and Closed Campus Transport. From the beginning, Ayro has made a commitment to commercialize energy efficient solutions, reduce carbon footprints and provide solutions for life cycle sustainability.  In May 2019, AEV Techologies, Inc. became Ayro, Inc.
