Electric Vehicles International Wins GSA Approval to Supply US Government & Military

March 1, 2012 – Stockton, CA – Electric Vehicles International (EVI) announced today it has been awarded a U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule, making it possible for federal agencies and military forces to purchase the company’s vehicles.  Under solicitation QMAA-F6-110004-N, four EVI models of medium-duty all-electric trucks and vans have been approved for government purchase, giving EVI the most comprehensive GSA-approved portfolio of all-electric, medium-duty vehicles.

“EVI’s addition to the GSA vehicle automotive list is another big win for EVI as we look to grow our customer base throughout the country,” said Frank Jenkins, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  “We are excited to partner with federal agencies and military forces as they look to transform  their fleets to clean, energy-efficient, long-life battery electric vehicles that are built to stand up to  the rigors of military use.”

EVI’s medium-duty truck and walk-in vans are all electric, class 4-6 delivery trucks boasting more acceleration and torque compared to internal combustion engines. With a top speed of 65mph and a range of 90 miles, EVI vehicles are well suited for return-to-base applications. Lithium iron magnesium phosphate batteries from Valence Technology power EVI vehicles.
