Torres Visits Phoenix Motorcars in Ontario

ONTARIO, CA – Today, U.S. Representative Norma J. Torres (D-Pomona) visited Phoenix Motorcars in Ontario as the last stop on her annual “Made in the 35th” manufacturing tour. Each all-electric zero-emission vehicle produced by Phoenix Motorcars reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60 tons of carbon monoxide per year as compared to a comparable commercial vehicle.

“Fighting climate change begins here in the Inland Empire. For more than 15 years, Phoenix Motorcars has been a leader in manufacturing electric vehicles that make our region cleaner and greener. I’m pleased to close out my ‘Made in the 35th’ tour with such an innovative business,” said Torres. “I’ll continue pushing for policies that help our local manufacturers grow, create good paying jobs, promote sustainability, and keep California’s economy strong.”

“As always our focus it to provide a safe, zero emissions, 100 percent electric vehicle of the highest quality to our customers while providing exceptional jobs and job training with our cutting edge technology all while making the planet a better place. We are very excited to host Representative Norma Torres and show her all the exciting projects we are working on,” said Tarek Helou, Vice President of Sales for Phoenix Motorcars.

Phoenix Motorcars, founded in 2003, is a leader in developing medium and heavy duty electric vehicles for the commercial markets. Phoenix Motorcars strives to provide fleets with clean transportation and renewable energy through advanced technology solutions and remains committed to excellence in electric vehicle innovation.

1st of 3 ZEUS 400 Shuttles for Park & Zoom Austin, Texas

Phoenix Motorcars is thrilled be to electrifying the first of three ZEUS 400 shuttle buses for Park & Zoom in Austin, Texas.

Park & Zoom is a parking service company with a 2,000 vehicle capacity structure at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The environmentally friendly company services airport passengers to and from the airport.

Aside from transporting passengers, the company has made significant efforts to be GREEN.  Their parking fleet is a combination of low to zero emission shuttles.  With the inclusion of the ZEUS 400 shuttles due to arrive early 2019, passengers will enjoy the safe and speedy travels of ZEUS with zero atmospheric emissions. They have also implemented electric vehicle charging stations for both their fleet and their customers as well.

Park & Zoom’s other GREEN  initiatives include the water quality pond that sits below the parking structure.  The pond collects runoff water that is then pumped through a filtration system and then pumped back into the Colorado River. One carbon foot-print, multiple purposes! 

Expect to see ZEUS 400 shuttle buses at the Austin -Bergstrom International Airport early 2019!
