AEV Technologies, a designer and manufacturer of light-duty, emissions-free electric vehicles for commercial and other markets, recently changed its corporate name to Ayro.
The company said the change, effective immediately, reflects its “natural growth and progression” in creating sustainable, all-electric vehicles for flexible use.
“We are excited to introduce Ayro and its evolving vision to the market,” said Rod Keller, CEO of Ayro. “The company is moving into a new frontier to address additional markets, products and services with a name that is far more progressive.
“The new name is just one of several exciting announcements we have planned leading into the second half of 2019.”
Due to urban congestion and natural resource depletion, the US is experiencing a significant increase in demand for efficient and sustainable transportation solutions, the company claimed. Ayro’s line of vehicles features a compact design that makes them easy to drive, maneuver through traffic and fit in almost any parking space.
“The sustainability of Ayro’s vehicles provides a tremendous opportunity for environmentally conscious consumers, as well as public and private organizations seeking new cost-effective, clean-energy fleet alternatives,” Keller said. “Our vehicles address a multitude of end-user needs and use-case possibilities for city government and utilities, universities, business campuses, resorts, retirement and gated-community residents, and on-demand, last-mile delivery.”
Most recently, Ayro announced a partnership with Club Car. The first collaboration includes a light-duty, compact, all-electric and emissions-free utility truck, branded the Club Car 411.
