New telematics, battery electric technology, and new generation D-series coaches push the busmaker into a new era.
RIVERSIDE, CA -- Green Automotive Company (OTCQB: GACR), a niche vehicle design, engineering, manufacturing, and sales company, announced recently that its Californian subsidiary, Newport Coachworks, is planning to launch its 100% electric shuttle bus at the LCT Show in Las Vegas.
The fully American built electric shuttle bus, The e-PATRIOT, will be presented for the first time at the upcoming Feb. 16-18 International LCT Show at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas (www.lctshow.com), one of the largest shuttle and charter events, where Newport Coachworks is presenting its shuttle bus range on a 2500sqm exhibition space.
The e-PATRIOT is produced at Newport Coachwork’s facility in Riverside where the company has been manufacturing its range of shuttle buses since early 2013. The e-PATRIOT has been built to the highest specification using advanced proprietary techniques that use innovative light weight materials. It can travel up to 100 miles on a single charge, has a top speed of 60 mph, and can be equipped with a fast charging system.
Carter Read, President of Newport Coachworks, said in a press release: “Las Vegas is the perfect market for our newest shuttle bus and several bus operators already have shown their interest in being amongst the first to offer their customers zero emission, quiet and vibration-free transport.”
Ian Hobday, CEO of Green Automotive, adds: “We have been working hard over the past year to achieve our goal to build electric vehicles in America. Our aim is to sell the electric shuttle bus not only in the USA but also into other markets."
According to a new market study published in January by Report Linker, the worldwide market for electric buses and taxis will multiply more than eight times in the next decade, approaching $60 billion not long after that.
