City of Riverside Receives Electric Trucks

August 05, 2010

RIVERSIDE, CA - Alvarez ZAP, electric vehicle provider ZAP's newest dealer in Riverside, Calif., delivered a shipment of six electric trucks to the City of Riverside during a grand opening press conference last week, according to a release issued by ZAP.

While accepting keys to one of the vehicles, Riverside Mayor Ron Loveridge said, "Today we take another step forward in the greening of Riverside by transitioning from gas to electrically operated vehicles. We are proud to add ZAP trucks to our fleet."

Also attending the Grand Opening were six City Council members and the City Manager as well as Joel Ayala, representing the Governors' office of Economic Development.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed dealer president Ramon Alvarez to the New Motor Vehicle Board in March 2007, and Alvarez is now a vice president of that organization. He stated, "As a member of the New Motor Vehicle Board, I have seen the evolution of alternative energy vehicles to the point where they are moving into the automotive mainstream and I believe ZAP represents the best opportunity to capitalize on that trend."
