ePower Trucks now offers the UK’s largest range of all-electric passenger and utility vehicles, after being appointed sole distributor for Global Electric Motorcars (GEM).

ePowerTrucks is marketing the road-legal GEM portfolio and will also provide full spare parts and product support to existing GEM customers in the UK. The company, based in Oldham, Greater Manchester, now offers over 35 all-electric models, including more than 10 road-legal EVs. It also supplies tow tractors, burden carriers, platform trucks and passenger vehicles for non-highway use such as airports, hospitals, visitor attractions and large industrial facilities.

Jerry Hanss, Managing Director of ePowerTrucks, said: “Our goal has always been to offer customers freedom of choice when selecting electric vehicles. After securing the GEM dealership, ePowerTrucks now offers the widest range of EVs in the UK – and there is more to come.”

Founded in 1997, GEM has sold more than 45,000 electric vehicles. The GEM Car el XD utility truck has a range of up to 40 miles on a single charge and the flat bed provides a 500kg payload. Quiet, clean and robust, is an ideal vehicle for estates management.

ePowerTrucks also offers three GEM low speed passenger vehicles, with two, four or six seats. Batteries can be 80% recharged in less than an hour using the fast charge option. At current UK energy prices, GEM vehicles cost around 2p per mile to run.
