EVI Demonstrates Road-ready Electric Vehicles

Electric Vehicles International (EVI), a leading manufacturer of commercial electric vehicles, announced on March 23 that it will be demonstrating its "Road Ready" commercial vehicle at Faster Freight &endash; Cleaner Air in Long Beach, Calif.

Having recently completed its launch into the United States, EVI offers the first pure electric and hybrid electric Class 3-6 commercial trucks, which comply with federal and state regulatory requirements for their respective weight classes.

"We are very happy to bring EVI back to California, the state where EVI was founded, and a state dedicated to clean transportation. Both the popular and political support in California, specifically for electrifying fleets, is a great model for the rest of the country," said Art Robins, vice president of U.S. Operations for Electric Vehicles International (EVI). "As an alternative to gasoline-centered transportation, fleet managers who adopt EVs and HEVs will see immediate results. For communities as well, the corollary effects of EV adoption can improve the quality of people’s lives—in terms of cleaner air, quieter streets and more freedom in energy decisions."

The recently passed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 includes a number of financial incentives for EVs that can range from $7,500 to $15,000 per vehicle. In addition, a number of other incentives and subsidies are available in California.
