Ontario-based all-electric vehicle manufacturer, Phoenix Motorcars, was one of the alternative fuel displays on "Green Street" during the Inland Empire Auto Show this past April, at the Ontario Convention Center.
Attendees are encouraged to stop by Phoenix Motorcars' booth to see its five-passenger, zero-emission, all-electric sport utility truck (SUT). During the show, attendees had the ultimate green experience when they get behind the wheel to test-drive the Phoenix SUT during the Ride and Drive Activity on Saturday and Sunday."We are thrilled to participate in an event that is right in our own backyard," said Bryon Bliss, vice president of sales and marketing for Phoenix Motorcars. "It is an opportunity to be involved locally and to support our local economy."
The SUT can travel at freeway speeds while carrying five passengers and a full payload. It exceeds all specifications for a Type III Zero Emission Vehicle, having a driving range of over 100 miles, can be recharged in less than 10 minutes and has a battery pack with a life of 12 years or more.
The SUT is powered by UQM Technologies Inc.'s propulsion system, utilizes Boshart Engineering's homologation process and is equipped with a non-toxic, revolutionary Altairnano NanoSafe all-battery pack.
A limited number of Phoenix Motorcars all-electric sport utility trucks will be available to consumers in 2007 with an expanded consumer launch scheduled for 2008. Phoenix Motorcars will also introduce an SUV model in late 2007.
