$29,929.14 Raised


Our prototype incorporates swappable batteries for long-distance travel and cutting-edge security and safety features for a new highly efficient and affordable two-wheel EV option.

As countries like India ban the use of gas-powered two-wheel transportation, we believe that the $51 billion ASEAN two-wheel vehicle market has a massive growing need for electric vehicles that are affordable to the average household.*

Our lead engineers connected during their time working for one of the biggest aviation suppliers over their belief that entrepreneurship can solve the world’s major problems. Now, our prototype is tested and complete, and we believe we are ready to launch end of May of 2023.

the pitch

Wolfhound Motors is Tau Lotus's new urban mobility brand that is all about modern lifestyles, convenience, and reducing pollution. We believe that digital integration of mobile devices and our lives in the cloud with our vehicles is key to delivering the convenience we are all used to. The first electric vehicle we are planning to bring to market is the E18 R a full-blooded, powerful, electric motorbike.

At Tau Lotus, we are working to build an emission-free future for transportation with highly desirable, affordable, and efficient electric two-wheel vehicles. With easily swappable batteries to tackle even the strongest range anxiety for long-distance travel, and seamlessly integrated security and safety features, our goal is to provide a much-needed solution to the $51 billion ASEAN two-wheel transportation market. We have recently completed and tested our prototype, and plan to launch our commercial product in the first half of 2023. The Company is in the pre-revenue stage of development.

The Problem & Our solution

Expanding Accessibility to Two-Wheel Electric Vehicles

For the majority of average households, increased gasoline prices and unaffordable electric-powered products are cost-prohibitive to purchasing two-wheel transportation solutions. Recently, the Indian government passed regulations to remove all gas-powered two-wheelers from the roads by 2030, creating a major need for affordable EV motorcycles (Source | Source).

Our affordable electric-powered motorcycles can provide higher load carrying transportation, long-range uninterrupted travel with the help of swappable batteries, and an enhanced rider experience with the help of completely integrated mobile devices, a built-in four-way camera system, a Bluetooth-integrated helmet, and keyless access. Once in-market, we plan to combine B2C and B2B sales strategies for the distribution of our motorcycles with subscription services (maintenance, repair, members community) as well as spare parts and accessories.

*The average amount of 2-wheelers sold per month was calculated by averaging two-wheel sales from every December between 2018-2022.

The global two-wheel sector is valued at approximately $51 billion, with an average 1.8 million two-wheelers sales per month (Source). Due to growing environmental concerns, the future of the market is trending towards electric power. Meanwhile, the EV market is trending towards two-wheelers at a rate of 130% (Source).

Christoph Geppert

Branding and Product Design Lead

For the last four years Christoph has been living his dream, combining his passion for design and sustainability in one single project. Since 2018 Christoph has been developing an electric motorbike for India. Starting with the entrepreneurial ambition of longstanding client Tau Lotus, he developed the definition of the strategy for both the business and the brand, the technology concept and industrial design for the motorbike, investor engagement and sustainability assessment.

From Christoph’s early studies in management strategy and environmental economics at the University of St Andrews and in Münster, Germany in the early nineties, Christoph’s desire to utilize design as a driving force to advance sustainability has been clear. After several years of working as a strategic consultant, Christoph’s belief in design as a corporate tool for success was strengthened enough to study industrial design at Central St Martin’s College in London. This lead to design projects for the next 20 years ranging from strategic definition and name development to product design and aircraft interiors, websites and many other brand experiences. Clients range from large corporates like Qualcomm, Sony PlayStation, Nokia and British Airways to startups and disruptors like ecoATM, Floreon, Catwalk Club and Spring Bank. Christoph latest quest for learning means he is IEMA certified for Carbon Management and GRI certified for Sustainability Reporting.

We want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.

Investing in private company securities is not suitable for all investors. An investment in private company securities is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. It should only be considered a long-term investment. You must be prepared to withstand a total loss of your investment. Private company securities are also highly illiquid, and there is no guarantee that a market will develop for such securities. Each investment also carries its own specific risks, and you should complete your own independent due diligence regarding the investment. This includes obtaining additional information about the company, opinions, financial projections, and legal or other investment advice. Accordingly, investing in private company securities is appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment.

As a bulletin board platform, SE BB provides a venue for investors to access information about private company offerings and connect with potential sellers. SE BB is distinct and separate from StartEngine Secondary (“SE Secondary”), which is an SEC-registered Alternative Trading System (ATS) operated by SE Primary. SE Secondary facilitates the trading of securities by matching orders between buyers and sellers and facilitating executions of trades on the platform. While a security may be displayed on the bulletin board, these securities will be subject to certain restrictions which may prevent the ability to buy and sell these securities in a timely manner, if at all. Even if a security is qualified to be displayed on the bulletin board, there is no guarantee an active trading market for the securities will ever develop, or if developed, be maintained. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.
