Green4U Technologies plans to begin delivering its battery-electric, fleet-focused SUVs by summer of 2018. The Georgia-based provider of electric vehicles (EVs) is showing off its first vehicles — the heavy-duty MTU-6 SUV and the Enova SUV — at conferences this week.
Designed primarily but not exclusively for fleet use, the developmental prototype MTU-6 and Enova SUV feature all-electric powertrains that will deliver up to 230 miles in range on a single charge. Both feature six doors to provide easy access to each SUV’s second- and third-row seats.
Both vehicles will share an in-house-designed modular aluminum chassis and will be produced in Georgia. This chassis design also will serve as the underpinnings for many of Green4U’s future all-electric vehicles, including an eight-door version of the Enova SUV.
Deliveries are expected by the second quarter of 2018. Production launch, on-sale date, and official MTU-6 and the Enova SUV specifications and pricing have not yet been released.
“We’re focusing on fleet operators because they understand how EVs can greatly lower their operating costs. A company that has fleet vehicles traveling 50,000 miles a year can save thousands of dollars through lower fuel and maintenance costs,” said Jack Perkowski, Green4U Technologies CEO and co-founder.
Green4U plans to bring additional all-electric vehicles to market over the next two years. The lineup ranges from neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs), SUVs, and sedans, to passenger and cargo vans and medium and large commercial vehicles.
