ECOVACS is marking its first five years in the Australian market by celebrating five milestones across innovation, design and customer satisfaction.

Among the latest awards, ECOVACS has been named the winner of Canstar Blue’s inaugural Most Satisfied Customers survey for Robot Vacuums, while also being recognised with an Australian Design Award for its flagship DEEBOT X1 OMNI.

These accolades join the Canstar Blue 2022 Innovation Excellence Award for Cleaning Appliances and the CES 2022 Innovation Award for the DEEBOT X1 OMNI with suction power of 5000Pa, the latest AIVI 3D and TrueMapping 2.0 technologies, its strongest mopping system ever, an all-in-one OMNI station that includes self-cleaning, auto empty and water refill, and the industry’s first natural language interactive YIKO AI Voice Assistant.

The perception of robot vacuums has evolved in line with such advancements. ECOVACS research shows that 81% of Australians are now open to embracing home robotics, with 62% aspiring to own a robot vacuum in the near future, beating out televisions, coffee machines and air purifiers to be the most desired home appliance in the country.

“We are proud of our leadership in driving the category forward from the moment we entered the Australian market,” ECOVACS Australia and New Zealand regional director, Karen Powell said.

“We are all craving more time to do things we enjoy with the people we love, and to have a better chore:life balance. Each of our ever-evolving models has played its own part in delivering on this promise to deliver a hands-free clean that also frees up your time.

“To receive such levels of satisfaction from our Australian customers as well as accolades from local experts in innovation and design is extremely gratifying. These awards only make us hungrier to innovate even further. I am excited to see what the next five years and beyond will bring.”
