LAS VEGAS - Chrysler Group Global Electric Motorcars LLC (GEM) was presented with the 2010 "EV-angelism Award" from the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute (AFVi) at the group's national conference and expo held in Las Vegas, May 9-12.

AFVi honored GEM for its history and leadership in the low-speed, Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) market, noting the company's commitment to manufacturing environmentally-friendly vehicles and its long service, which has helped build credibility for the NEV industry as a whole.

Over the past 12-plus years, more than 40,000 GEM electric vehicles have been placed in service worldwide. These vehicles have been driven more than 500 million emission-free miles, have saved more than 19.5 million gallons of gas, and have reduced CO2 emissions by more than 93,000 metric tons, according to the company.

GEM representatives were presented with the award May 11 during the morning General Session of the conference.
