Founded in Vancouver nearly two decades ago, Envo is a Canadian e-bike brand on a mission to make high end, technically advanced yet affordable e-bikes, that are not only reliable but also environmentally-sustainable. Coupled with a long history of going above and beyond to keep Envo riders highly satisfied, one of their long term goals has been to replace as many cars on the road as possible, something they’re doing an increasingly fine job of.
Whether you’re new to e-bikes and looking to start feeling the breeze on your face on your daily commute, or already an e-bike devote and simply looking to upgrade, Envo have something for you.
ENVO DRIVE SYSTEMS INC is an engineering R&D and market research company which focuses on affordable solutions for clean transportation and electric drive systems.
ENVO makes technologically advanced, yet affordable ebikes. Our mission is to create an environmentally-sustainable product for our highly-satisfied customers, designed to replace cars on the road.
Well-engineered and reliable, we offer a wide range of ebikes to fit any customer’s needs.
If most of us think back to our early childhood, some of our fondest memories involve riding a bike. There is an emotional connection there. Nostalgia. Fun. Happiness. Pride. A connection with the outdoors. A connection with family.
This is why Envo is passionate about building great e-bikes – in the end it is always about people.
Ali Khazemkhani, founder of Envo Drive Systems Inc., is no different. Growing up overseas, bicycles were a significant part of his life since childhood. But for Ali, his passion for bicycles continually turned his mind to one question – how can I make this better for people?
“I was only 8 years old struggling with a 3V micro electric motor from my Dad’s broken Tape player to make my 16-inch Cadillac bicycle wheel rotate. It never did work, but the challenge continued…”
He never stopped pursuing his dreams, hence he attended university to learn more about designing and building products. He studied for a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and a few years after, graduated with an M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering in 2004. During this time, Ali still had a passion for electric mobility solutions and worked on, then introduced, the first generation of Envo electrically converted bicycles in 2002.
After immigration to Canada, Ali decided to review existing bicycle varieties and refine his E-conversion kit design. He spent several months technically reviewing more than 200 existing bicycle forms, sizes, technical features, and drawings to develop modular components that could come together as a conversion kit, and still be a good fit and easily installed on any of the available bicycles in the North American market. This was a huge undertaking with numerous hours of pure engineering, design, prototyping, testing, updating and repeating the process. The result was so successful in the market (when he posted them for sale on Amazon) that he decided to pursue this venture in the market, resulting in Envo being born with its first offering: the E-conversion kit.
As the market got to know the DIY kit product, customers kept asking for a fully installed E-bike instead of just a conversion kit. That drove the development of the next Envo release in 2017.
The first fully loaded E-bike would be a light, efficient electric bicycle designed and engineered in Canada. There would be a focus on do-it-yourself maintenance and personalized customer service, taking time to design and engineer an e-bike that reflected the core values of the brand. The Envo D35 was launched and the Envo brand hit the market.
Envo has quickly followed on the success of the Envo D35 by introducing two other new products: the Envo ST (Step Thru) and the Envo Ultra-Light Folding e-bike.
In addition, every year the D35 product line has been redeveloped with new features, colours, and styles. Envo is here to make a great first impression for first time e-bike riders and to show early adopters what Envo can do.
For Envo, the e-bike line is just the start. Our core values of giving people mobility products they love and playing our part in the electric revolution will be embodied through innovative products for road, snow, water and more – always professionally designed and carefully engineered in Canada. We have big plans and can’t wait to share them with you.
At Envo we cultivate a collaborative environment, have a passion for innovation and mobility, and are continually working on launching and promoting new electro-mechanical products and solutions.
We offer guaranteed satisfaction on all our products and services. We understand your enthusiasm for receiving a perfect product as soon as possible which is why we provide in-depth, free technical sales support to prevent any discrepancy between a solution you need and what you purchase from us.

Our team of talented engineers and designers are passionate about bringing environmentally friendly ideas to life for our local customers and to showcase their cool and technical aspects to customers and businesses.
Ali also knew he could not realise his vision for the future of his company alone. He reconnected with old, trusted classmates to build the team that is driving forward the Envo vision today.Knowing each other since they were in school together at 11 years old, Steve joined Ali full time in 2018, bringing with him his background in mechanical engineering and international trade. Steve is working to drive sales, expansion, and infrastructure forward.
Kayvan, another lifelong friend and classmate of Ali and Steve, had been providing ad-hoc advice and consulting to Envo for years. Kayvan has joined full time in 2020 to help Envo keep pace with the fast growing e-bike market, and enhance processes, technology, and people pillars of the organization, while formulating and executing the strategic planning of Envo ever since.
I received my D35, 20″ last week. It was very easy to assemble, I was up and riding in 30 mins or less. Awesome bike! I have a 10km commute to work, now I don’t care how windy it is. I have been researching and looking for an ebike for a couple of years and decided on the D35. Very stylish bike, excellent colour, I have had many compliments on it already, it is great to support Canadian companies! I would highly recommend the D35!

I’m very happy with my purchase, my previous commute was awful with the bus or a car, but with my eBike my life has changed. It’s super fast, beautifully designed, can’t complain about a thing. The rush hour in Vancouver can be crazy sometimes with construction going on everywhere, but with my eBike I just fly through. I often get to stop and people ask me for the details about my eBike. Collecting compliments!
– Sam Bukhari , ENVO ST Owner
Great customer service and the D35 is such a great bike! Changed my life. Grateful to Envo eBikes.
