 An automotive company dreaming of something other than just cars



Mando is a global automotive parts manufacturer in South Korea, established in 1962. As the leading automotive supplier based in Korea, Mando produces cutting-edge safety systems, such as ABS, ESP, ECS, and EPS for the global automotive market. Using this experience, we envisioned creating a new “mobility lifestyle” not just another vehicle.



Mando Footloose creates a new “Mobility Lifestyle”



Mando Footloose is a chainless e-bike featuring the latest automotive technologies. More freedom than a car, more convenient than a bicycle, easier than a motorbike; Mando Footloose is the city’s new transportation option. It can be enjoyed by all demographics. It breaks the limitations of dense traffic, narrow parking spaces, and the time, space, and energy these all use. Experience freedom as part of an intelligent lifestyle, with this human focused design and innovative technology.



Naming this new creation…



The automotive system brand name “Mando” embodies the idea of man-do, or man-can-do. The product name “Footloose” is derived from the meaning “free to go” and means a new type of transportation without a chain.
