THE PHOENIX CARS ELECTRIC SHUTTLE BUS RECEIVES CALIFORNIA AIR RESOURCES BOARD APPROVAL

Company to offer first public ride and drive opportunities since CARB approval at the BusCon Expo 2014 in Indianapolis, IN

Ontario, CA. (September 10, 2014) – Phoenix Cars LLC., a leading developer of electric vehicle technologies for the fleet vehicle market, announced today that its electric shuttle bus, named ZEUS 300 (Zero Emissions Utility Shuttle 300 series), has been granted California Air Resources Board (CARB) approval. To acquaint the market with the vehicle, Phoenix will be exhibiting at the 2014 BusCon Expo in Indianapolis, Indiana, September 15-17, where it will offer the first ‘Ride and Drives’ of the electric shuttle bus since achieving this critical development milestone.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) approval is widely accepted as the most strenuous automotive emissions regulation profile in the United States, and completion of the process validates the vehicle’s ability to meet the emissions requirements of all U.S. vehicle markets. Phoenix intends for ZEUS 300 to be the standard bearer for robust design and regulatory compliance in the market.

The ZEUS is powered by a proprietary Phoenix Cars Electric Drive platform powered by a lithium-ion traction battery pack. The vehicle is capable of carrying 14-passengers and their cargo 100-miles on a single charge and can complete a full recharge in as little as 2-hours using DC fast charging. Additionally, the ZEUS comes with Phoenix’s industry leading 8-year/300,000 mile battery warranty and 5-year/100,000 mile drivetrain warranty.

“In everything that we do with our products, we are giving the market real proof points that we hold ourselves to the highest standards of quality and performance,” said Phoenix Cars president, Steven Davis. “Now we are looking to give potential customers the opportunity to experience for themselves the ZEUS 300 during the ‘Ride and Drive’ at BusCon.”

14-PASSENGER, ALL-ELECTRIC VEHICLE AND PLATFORM TO TARGET US AND INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL FLEET MARKETS

Ontario, CA. (April 22, 2014) – Phoenix Cars LLC., a leading developer of electric vehicle technologies for the fleet market, today announced the introduction of its modular, electric vehicle (EV) platform and it’s all new 14-passenger, all-electric shuttle bus focused on the US and international markets.

“Phoenix Cars LLC. worked very closely with its key technology partners to develop a compact and modular EV platform, which can be integrated into a diverse range of vehicle applications,” said Steven Davis, president, Phoenix Cars LLC. “The first Phoenix Cars product to utilize this platform is an all-electric shuttle bus that was designed expressly for use by commercial fleets. Our electric shuttle bus offers fleet owners an outstanding value proposition, because our shuttle costs significantly less to maintain and operate than traditional gas or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles.”

The electric shuttle bus is powered by Phoenix’ new EV platform, which includes a proprietary vehicle controller, Remy™ (www.remyinc.com) permanent magnet traction motor, Sevcon™ (www.sevcon.com) motor inverter, and a Coslight™ ( www.cncoslight.com) lithium-ion battery pack and battery management system.
