Chinmay malaviya and Charlie Depman found themselves at the center of micro electric vehicles, working for companies like bird, lime and scoot. After a roller coaster of venture capital and fast-growing demand, disaster in product design and regulatory hurdles, the two noted changes and opportunities in the industry. < p > < p > malaviya and Depman, who met on LinkedIn, determined that there was no suitable way to study, review and purchase electric bicycles, electric mopeds or motorcycles other than Google and Amazon search. As a result, ridepanda, an online market for light electric vehicles, was born. < / P > < p > ridepanda raised an undisclosed seed fund from general catalyst and Will Smith’s dreamers fund to achieve the mission of bringing more electric bikes, scooters and mopeds into the public hands. < / P > < p > the start-up, launched by two in early 2020, aims to become a one-stop e-Car store where customers can find a set of expert approved electric mini transport products, one of which is customized to help shoppers find the right product. Ridepanda launched a new website at the end of September that improved the user interface with a ride guide quiz and other support services to help people find the right product. These support services are bundled together and branded & quot; pandacare & quot;, connecting users with information such as insurance, decoration, repair and maintenance plans, and even helping to find the right helmet. < / P > < p > ridepanda visitors will find that the & quot; ridefinder test & quot; allows users to choose an electric bicycle, moped or scooter, all by inputting height and weight, the main daily use, and finally personal preferences such as foldable or freight and budget requirements. The user then gets several results that best match their choice. Users can also skip this process by searching for three product types or use cases, such as & quot; commuting & quot;, & quot; Adventure & quot;, & quot; Shipping & quot; or & quot; accessibility & quot;. < / P > < p > not all electric bicycles, scooters or mopeds are eligible to enter ridepanda’s website. To be included in the platform, a product must meet certain standards and ratings. Depman said the company would rate vehicles in terms of performance, safety, sustainability, durability and maintainability. The rating is achieved by assessing all the different components of the vehicle, including batteries, motors and brakes. < p > < p > ridepanda currently focuses on the U.S. market, especially in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, San Francisco and Seattle. The company is considering offering customers the option of financing the purchase of vehicles at a later stage and is even working on a subscription service, although it is not clear when or whether it will be launched. It is said that “gta5” will be launched on Google cloud game platform stadia
