A Six-Door Electric SUV? Green4U Technologies Built Two of Them

On display now at the 2017 AUSA annual meeting & exposition in Washington D.C. and at the 99th Annual TLPA Convention & Trade Show at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. Both vehicles are based on a aluminum platform and both are said to have a range of about 250 miles on a single charge. Unfortunately, as of now, there are no technical notes available.

Here’s the (abridged) press release:

Green4U Technologies, Inc., a Georgia-based provider of electric vehicles (EVs) and EV technologies, is showing its first all-electric vehicles – the heavy duty MTU-6 SUV and the Enova SUV – at two U.S. expositions this week.

Both feature six doors to provide easy access to each SUV’s second- and third-row seats. Designed primarily but not exclusively for fleet use, the developmental prototype MTU-6 and Enova SUV on display feature all-electric powertrains that will deliver up to 230 miles in range on a single charge.

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. The company plans to begin delivering MTU-6 and Enova SUVs to customers by the second quarter of 2018.

Production launch, on-sale date, and official MTU-6 and the Enova SUV specifications and pricing will be released in the near future. ͞

“Our engineers designed a lightweight and strong aluminum chassis and are optimizing electric drivetrains and systems to deliver the range and performance that fleet operators need,͟” said Jack Perkowski, Green4U Technologies, Inc. CEO and co-founder. ͞”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.͟”

The MTU-6 was on display in the Green4U exhibit at the 2017 AUSA annual meeting & exposition.

(Hall B, Booth No. 2647) at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in the nation’s capital. The company simultaneously is displaying the Enova six-door SUV in Booths C and D at the Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Association (TLPA) 99th Annual Convention & Trade Show at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

First deliveries expected to begin by summer 2018.

India is Shifting to All-Electric Cars VERY Soon

Recently, India officially committed to reducing emissions bu 37% and to sell only electric vehicles by 2030. This is one of the most ambitious announcements regarding electrification next to China’s new commitment to all-electric vehicles.

“This is part of the Narendra Modi government’s vision to helm a renewable-energy revolution in the country. It reckons that the automobile sector’s massive conversion will cut its oil bill by some $60 billion, reduce emissions by 37%, and curb the burgeoning demand for road infrastructure over the next 13 years.” – – Quartz India (online magazine)


They go on to say: “As a precursor, India’s new and renewable energy ministry has been appointed the nodal agency to help procure some 10,000 electric cars this year to replace existing government vehicles.
Various state governments are making their own plans in this regard.

Last week, the southern state of Karnataka approved a policy to promote research & development in electric mobility. It has now made it mandatory to have charging points and pods in all high rises. Maharashtra had waived various taxes for EVs when it became India’s first state to have an electric mass mobility system—in May, taxi aggregator Ola began operating 200 EVs, including taxis, buses, e-rickshaws, and auto-rickshaws in the state’s Nagpur city.”

Considering the fact that India is already taking serious steps towards automotive electrification, the future of electric cars in one of the most populous places on earth looks like a good one indeed.
