For Immediate Release

Zenith All Electric, zero carbon emission shuttle and cargo vans are now available through the Federal Government General Services Administration (GSA) contract to support a comprehensive White House program to maintain Federal leadership in sustainability and greenhouse gas emission reductions.

Executive Order (EO) 13693 “Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade” was signed by President Obama on 19 March 2015 which revoked and replaced Executive Orders 13423 and 13514 as well as Presidential Memorandums on the Implementation of Energy Savings Projects and Performance-Based Contracting for

Energy Savings, Driving Innovation and Creating Jobs in Rural America through Bio-based and Sustainable Product Procurement, Federal Leadership on Energy Management and Federal Fleet Performance.

If an agency operates at least 20 motor vehicles, they are required improve fleet and vehicle efficiency to reduce per-mile greenhouse gas emissions from agency relative to an emission baseline in fiscal year 2014 to 4 percent by the end of fiscal year 2017, 15 percent by 2021 and 30 percent by 2025.

“Fossil fuels will continue to fluctuate based on variables that no one can control. The pollution it creates also impacts our health and ecosystems. Our shuttles and vans provide a more stable operating cost structure and zero emissions to meet the Federal mandate to reduce our carbon footprint.” said Christine Smith, Vice President of Sales

and Marketing for Zenith Motor. “Our environmentally friendly vehicles also reduce long term maintenance costs. No scheduled down time is required for oil changes, gas filters, antifreeze, transmission fluid because there are none in an all-electric vehicle. That can be a savings of up to over $100,000 in operating costs over the service life of the van” With an 80 or 100 mile range and recharging in 4 or 6.5 hours, Zenith Electric Vehicles can replace any locally used shuttle, delivery or service van. Shuttle configurations with seating up to 16 passengers can be equipped with wheelchair lifts. Automatic sliding doors are a standard feature on the shuttle van. Cargo versions have 530 cubic feet of capacity.

Zenith Motors reduces shuttle, cargo and service van ownership by reducing routine maintenance to maximize up-time while reducing carbon emission to create a healthier community. We serve governments, hospitals, hotels, airports, commercial delivery and service businesses.
