AMP Holding has signed an agreement that could lead to the sale of 1,000 of its electric Equinox SUVs to Iceland’s Northern Lights Energy (NLE) over the next five years.
AMP expects to deliver its first Electric SUV to NLE in early 2011.
NLE is actively promoting means of sustainable transportation and has initiated the Icelandic National EV Project, involving various stakeholders such as municipalities, and large companies in a national consortium with the aim to build a nationwide charging infrastructure and end Iceland’s dependence on foreign oil through the electrification of transportation.
After an initial review, NLE intends to demonstrate the AMP’d SUV to the EV Project Consortium members, followed by public exhibition. It is the intention of NLE to purchase a variety of all-electric SUV’s from AMP for utilization within fleet operations as well as for re-sale within the Company’s market region.
The electric SUVs, which are in fact converted Chevrolet Equinox, are powered by Remy International motors, and have a range of up to 150 miles per charge, with a top speed of 90 miles an hour.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
