Ride Safe. Use Responsibly.

Virtus Motors has a vision to change the way people move, and it is our fundamental belief that every ride and every trip must focus on safety. A safe ride to us means every person using a Virtus Motors Electric Vehicle considers the environment, operates their vehicle under control and utilises shared space within the local city rules and regulations.
