Electric pickup scores high at Michigan Electric Vehicle Show

The GGT Electric 2011 “Scout” electric pickup truck won three major awards at the recent Third Annual Michigan Electric Vehicle Show & Rally

The GGT Electric 2011 “Scout” electric pickup truck won three major awards at the recent Third Annual Michigan Electric Vehicle Show & Rally, including best four-wheel production, most creative electric vehicle and the best of show award.

“We were completely knocked out by the response we got at the Michigan Electric Vehicle Show,” said 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,” he added.

GGT’s all-electric highway trucks are powered by LiFeMnPO4 batteries, which use a proprietary blend of lithium ferrous phosphate and manganese dioxide. Available are 40Kw, 60Kw, and 80Kw packages fitted with on- or off-board chargers. Range for the GCT models varies from 80 to 200 miles while charging time is about eight hours.
