Government of Canada, Echohive Launch Social Networking App for EV Community
Torque Network, the world’s first social networking app for the EV tech community, has just been launched in the Canadian App Store. The app has been developed by Ecohive, a renewable energy company based in Toronto, with a $50,000 investment from the Government of Canada.
The app enables EV enthusiasts, industry professionals, ecopreneurs and EV newbies to grow their network and impact in the EV space by seamlessly connecting users based on their interests, goals and geolocation.
According to the developers, Torque Network “breaks barriers to understanding EV tech and key EV concepts through engaging content, interesting facts and infographics” offered in the ‘EV-Cyclopedia’ and ‘Learning Portal’ features of the app.
“We’re giving Canadians the greener options they want to get to where they need to go. This is how we get to net zero by 2050,” said Minister Seamus O’Regan Jr.
“Torque Network’s mission is to evolve humanity’s consciousness through technological innovations that lower the human carbon footprint and incentivize human behavior to be in harmony with nature,” said Imran Javer, Torque Network’s product designer.
“With the global pandemic we are seeing Canadians and people all across the world reconnecting with the planet and demanding a higher quality of life that is sustainable. Tech and a little bit of creativity can help us achieve that. This App was created to act as a catalyst for positive change and collaboration through the common appreciation of EVs and other disruptive technologies that are changing the world for the better.”
The App is currently available for download in Canada via the App Store, and will later be developed for Android with plans to launch in the US, Europe, and eventually the rest of the world.
