Heavy Duty Electric Vehicles

Electric Vehicles Are Big Business

With electric vehicles on the rise, it’s no wonder that the business surrounding EVs are booming too—on the stock market. “Following its IPO this month, Chinese lithium-ion battery manufacturer CATL became one of the highest-valued companies on the ChiNext stock exchange.” But how big is it expected to go? According to the International Energy Agency, “Electric vehicles will grow from 3 million to 125 million by 2030.” EVs already grew 54% in 2017. That’s a lot of business!

Electric Vehicles Bring Even More Massive Benefits

Owners are already saving a ton of green—both in money and environmentally—when it comes to electric vehicles, but there are even more benefits coming up. In Ireland, electric vehicles drivers are getting a reduced rate for tolls. And when it comes to ride sharing, Uber “announced a yearlong pilot program to provide cash incentives to some drivers who use electric vehicles, or EVs, with the goal of facilitating at least 5 million trips over the next 12 months.” The benefits just keep coming!

Electric Specialty Vehicle Transportation is All the Rage

You might have seen personal electric vehicles (PEVs) on the rise, especially if you live in a city, with more access to e-scooters and e-bikes. With the demand for more alternative transportation, it’s allowing people to move around their city in short distances more freely. Some of those companies are looking for even more alternatives, like Lime, launching two-seater specialty electric vehicles. There are even places looking to become all electric. “The Antelope Valley Transit Authority, which serves some 450,000 residents in parts of Los Angeles County, wants to be the first transit agency with an all-electric bus fleet.”

Trade Show Tales: ISC West Security Show

Last month we headed over to the ISC West Security Show, the largest US security event featuring the latest products, training, and networking. There were 30,000+ security professionals who attended or exhibited at this year’s event and Xtreme Green Electric Vehicles was there as an exhibitor, showcasing our vehicles and the latest advancements we’ve made to assist security professionals. XGEV offers physical security service providers vehicle alternatives to replace typical foot patrol coverage and the use of highway vehicles that are costly in both maintenance and fuel consumption. Many of the vehicles offered by XGEV also enable the patrol officers to navigate areas that standard automobiles are unable to access while being a more powerful alternative to bicycles. All of our vehicles can be upfitted to accommodate various security needs, too. With a show all about advancement and technology, it was the perfect place for XGEV.

With this growing and important industry, Xtreme Green Electric Vehicles continues to develop and provide effective, efficient, and economical options for perimeter and campus security patrol needs. As global security needs continue to accelerate, the ability to provide improved physical patrol options is paramount to the efficiency and effectiveness of security providers.

XGEV Vice President Joseph Worrell was there to answer questions about XGEV and also learn about the latest technological advances in the security industry.

“I was interested to learn that economical options have been developed that provide the ability to globally track the location and movements of a single patrol vehicle using a small device installed on the vehicle and a smartphone app,” says Worrell. “There’s no need to purchase expensive software programs as in the past.”

At XGEV, we’re proud to be part of the technological advancement in the security industry. Hope to see you at the next ISC show!

The Great Electric Outdoors

Spring is just about here! As the temperatures start to rise and we’re itching to get outside and into the great outdoors, why not make some of your adventures electric?

An Xtreme Green Electric Vehicle can be used for work, whether police officers use them for patrolling or farmers use them for hauling, but they can also be used for a little fun. Take your electric vehicle through forests, out into fields, or along back road paths and be at ease, knowing your vehicle can handle it. The Citadel Pro ATV is the ultimate outdoor machine. It is powerful enough to handle tough terrains (with a climbing capacity of up to 30-degree grade) and can go up to 45 miles per hour and 40-60 miles on one charge.

The Citadel Pro ATV has even been known to be used for hunting. How? Because it’s incredibly quiet—10 dbs quieter than the average ATV. And it’s not only a great option to reduce noise pollution, but actual pollution—XGEV have zero admissions.

Can’t you just picture yourself, cruising along in your XGEV electric ATV, whipping down dirt roads and into fields and forests? Use your electric vehicle for both work AND play…or just play. We won’t tell.

Xtreme Green Electric Vehicles Wins Spot on General Services Administration’s Elite List of Preferred Contractors

Las Vegas, Nevada — Xtreme Green Electric Vehicles (XGEV), one of the premier manufacturers of 100 percent electric specialty vehicles, announced that they have officially been granted GSA (Government Services Administration) approval with contract number GS-03F-093AA.

Since 2007, XGEV has been a leader in creating the environmentally green standard for police, military, security, maintenance, and landscaping and off-road commercial users. Each vehicle is designed with the latest technology and the most advanced energy management and electric propulsion systems. XGEV vehicles include all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), police mobility vehicles (PMVs) and the premier three and six-seater X-Force PRO utility terrain vehicles (UTVs).

XGEVs are the brand of choice for corporations and government agencies looking for zero emission vehicles. XGEVs have all the power and ability of gasoline engines, without the particulate pollution or noise pollution and no carbon footprint. Notably, XGEV is the first company in the world to manufacture a full line of zero-emission lithium iron phosphate battery-powered vehicles.

The Electric Specialty Vehicle Update

The Electric Specialty Vehicle Update is a quarterly round-up of all the important news related to personal electric vehicles. Get your industry news fix and see the trends in this handy round-up.

 

More States Supporting Electric

More and more states are supporting the use of electric vehicles through policy, whether through policy, infrastructure, or monetary breaks. Massachusetts is set to receive $75 million dollars from the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Fund and plan to use it “to invest in electric vehicle charging infrastructure and invest the balance of the funds in fully-electric transit and school buses.” The plan is to have more charging stations to encourage more cars on the road. New Jersey is also looking to get more electric vehicles on the road, with big goals they hope to meet mostly by updating their charging infrastructure. And California “proposed a $2.5 billion initiative that will bring 250,000 vehicle charging stations and 200 hydrogen fueling stations to the state by 2025.” Read the full stories here, here, and here.

 

Increase in Range

There is something called “range anxiety” among electric vehicle owners. It’s the fear that they won’t be able to get where they need to go on a charge and/or that there won’t be enough places to charge (which is why so many states and countries are trying to increase their charging stations). There are new developments in batteries to also add mileage to each charge and “The Department of Energy reports that the median EV range in the US has risen from 73 miles to 114 miles since 2011 (with a top range now exceeding 330 miles).” Read the full story here.

 

The Rise of Alternative Electric Vehicles

There are much more kinds of electric vehicles out there except for cars (which, of course, we know here at Xtreme Green Electric Vehicle!). Attitudes are changing for personal electric vehicle use as they “afford Baby Boomers easy access to bicycle trails, trips, and tours. At the same, these vehicles also attract Millennials who are using them for commuting and social enjoyment.” Additionally, electric buses are the latest electric vehicle push with “the total number of electric buses servicing the public will more than triple by 2025,” with China dominating those numbers. Read the full stories here and here.
