All Systems ‘Go' for Green Motor Fleet at University of North Carolina in Charlotte

August 8, 2007

CHARLOTTE, NC – The University of North Carolina Charlotte (UNCC) is building a fleet of alternatively-fueled vehicles to comply with a state mandate that says 75 percent of all state motor fleets operate on alternative fuel by January of 2009, according to the Charlotte Observer newspaper.

The university has added 51 low-speed, battery-electric vehicles to its motor fleet since 2005, and it plans to add at least 90 more. UNCC added 24 Daimler Chrysler Global Electric Motorcars since 2005 to the fleet that includes 24 Club Cars, two Trolleys, one EZGO Electric Vehicle, and two Columbia Par Car Summit Neighborhood Electric Vehicles.

Global Electric Motorcars was selected because the line of electric vehicles can be licensed to operate on 35 mph roads. The vehicles also have automotive safety restraints, four-wheel braking, automotive tires, and built-in rollover protection.

GEM has proposed doing a case study of UNCC’s green fleet.
