Cruise Car's Solar Electric Hybrid Low-Speed Vehicles on Capital Hill for Earth Day

April 23, 2009

SARASOTA, FL – Cruise Car, Inc. showcased its solar electric hybrid vehicles on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. on Earth Day, April 22 to demonstrate the ecological and economical benefits of operating solar-powered, low-speed vehicles.

"What could be better than Earth Day to show people just how much we benefit from the sun," said Greg Hyde, spokesman for Cruise Car. "Solar energy is rapidly growing in its potential for providing alternative energy solutions and we are here to show people how they can use the free resources of the sun for low-speed vehicle transportation."

Cruise Car provides a full line of unique 2-14 passenger solar electric transport solutions ideal for planned communities, golf courses, college campuses, municipalities, military bases, corporate parks, resorts, federal agencies, and all fleet vehicle owners that seek to improve the efficiency of their transportation systems.

"Cruise Car's entire mission is to provide solar powered transportation where it makes sense...from a family NEV (neighborhood electric vehicle) to an entire fleet of maintenance vehicles," said Hyde.

Founded with the mission to provide affordable, alternative energy transportation solutions and to help combat rising greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector, Cruise Car, Inc. manufactures solar electric hybrid low speed vehicles with more than 50 models in its product line and distribution on four continents. Cruise Cars can be made street-legal in most states and driven on roads with speeds posted 35 mph or lower.

Eco-Trans Alliance, Cruise Car's parent company, also offers comprehensive consultation and solutions to institutions seeking a one-stop resource to significantly reduce their carbon footprint while implementing logical cost savings measures, providing products such as solar charging stations, rapid chargers, GPS tracking systems, solar roof kits, solar cart barns, prefab solar parking garages and related energy-saving products and services.
