The official unveiling of this new all-electric vehicle will occur at the 2012 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January. A running prototype of the groundbreaking EV will be on-hand for test drives on the Ride & Drive Track.
"The new AMP model is our latest 100% electric offering and a demonstration of our proprietary technology for SUVs, giving a driving range of 100+ miles. Where most EVs are small, compact or subcompact, our mission is to give our EV buyers vehicles that the greatest percent of the car-buying public prefers," said Jim Taylor, AMP CEO. "The opportunity to test drive it at the Detroit Show will give visitors a first hand experience of what we have achieved in this state of the art electric SUV."
Along with the Mercedes ML, the addition of this new model AMP will give EV buyers two great SUV choices in the emerging EV market.
AMP was founded in 2007 by entrepreneurs who have created several hi-tech companies. Currently, the AMP team is comprised of top automotive industry veterans and business executives. AMP’s first all electric demonstration models were the Saturn Sky and the Chevrolet Equinox. Since its inception, AMP’s unique electrification technology has proven to be an idea that has generated an extreme amount of interest, with inquiries coming from around the world. AMP’s intent is to electrify a range of OEM SUVs, and expects to announce new model additions in 2012. The Company expects its vehicle electrification technology will provide new solutions to America’s energy demands.
