The addition of the Jeep Grand Cherokee complements AMP’s Mercedes M-Class EV offering. EV buyers will now have two great SUV choices in the retail market, and the Jeep EV also provides an attractive entry for companies that are adding "green" vehicles to their fleets.
"Beginning with a world class vehicle, and adding AMP’s electrification results in an EV that offers everything SUV Customers expect: smooth powerful performance, zero emissions and up to a 100-mile range," said Jim Taylor, AMP CEO.
AMP will announce pricing, initial delivery dates and market distribution at the Detroit Auto Show.
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.
