For Immediate Release
June 20, 2011 – Livonia, MI – As the largest electric vehicle show east of the Mississippi drew to a close and the best of show awards were presented, the big winners of the night were GGT Electric (GreenGoTek) and their brand-new 2011 Scout Pickup Truck.
GGT’s all-electric, zero-emission pickup truck won three major awards at the 3rd Annual Michigan Electric Vehicle Show & Rally on June 11, including best four-wheel production EV, most creative electric vehicle, and the coveted “best in show” award.
The new Scout Pickup faced stiff competition at the Michigan Electric Auto Association’s (MEAA) third annual electric vehicle (EV) show, facing off against such well-known vehicles as the Chevy Volt and the Toyota Prius, new vehicles from up-and-coming hybrid/EV manufacturers like Bright Automotive and EcoV Electric, and various other electric conversions.
But, in the end, GGT Electric’s Scout Pickup walked away with three of the evening’s six awards, including “best in show”. The 2011 Scout Pickup produces zero emissions, comes in 72 or 96 volt power options, and is ideal for fleet or commercial use.
“We were completely knocked out by the response we got at the Michigan Electric Vehicle Show,” says Ray Leduc, CEO of GGT Electric. “It was an amazing experience to be able to show the organizers and the attendees how functional and rugged an all-electric truck can be – to have that personal interaction with them. And then to have that experience validated by winning best of show and most creative vehicle. What a great night! It was wonderful to see the EV community embrace a manufacturer that maybe doesn’t have the corporate reach of Chevy or Toyota, but that is just as committed to delivering well-built, affordable, eco-friendly electric vehicles.”
GGT Electric is a leader in the international fleet greening movement, having previous supplied its all-electric vehicles to such diverse sources as the state of South Carolina, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the U.S. Veterans Administration, Virginia Tech University, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Grand Canyon National Park, the University of Memphis, and the U.S. Forestry Service, among others.
