EVI CHANGES PUBLIC PERCEPTION OF THE IMMEDIATE VIABILITY OF ELECTRIC COMMERCIAL TRANSPORT VEHICLES
Demonstration of fully electric commercial vehicle at Work Truck Show shows that fleet owners can make a difference to the environment and their bottom line by going green
Fleet owners, who are faced with the challenge of maximizing every operational dollar spent due to current economic conditions, now have access to new opportunities including federal tax incentives that range from $7,500 to $15,000 per vehicle. When these incentives are combined with EVI's competitive pricing, business owners may find themselves spending less on an alternative energy vehicle than they would by purchasing its gas-guzzling counterpart. Not only does EVI offer a custom line of class 3-6 commercial electric vehicles, but it also provides fleet owners with the option of converting their existing fleets to EV or HEV.
