Fremont electric scooter startup comes to ‘Innovation District’

FREMONT — The city’s strategy to attract cleantech companies to its growing “Innovation District” has begun yielding results, as another electric vehicle startup has moved to the area.

GenZe, an electric-powered scooter maker, moved last month from Palo Alto to south Fremont, where Tesla’s factory and other green companies have set up shop. “We wanted a lot of space and an area that’s encouraging for electric vehicles and innovation,” said GenZe CEO Vish Palekar. “We naturally landed in Fremont.”

GenZe has moved its headquarters near an 850-acre area where Fremont hopes to add up to 4,000 housing units, 12,000 jobs, shopping and entertainment, restaurants, hotel and convention facilities, and parks and open space. The zone is anchored by the Warm Springs-South Fremont BART station, which will open late next year.
