Tropos Technologies (“Tropos”) announced the signing of a multi-year Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Momentum Groups (“Momentum”), a leading electric vehicle fleet management solution provider, to supply its Tropos Motors eLSVs (electric low speed vehicles).
Low speed vehicles are escalating globally, and the rapid growth is attributed to a breadth of demand across a number of applications including last mile delivery of products and food, various trades and utility uses, as well off-highway and on-campus usage. Tropos Motors eLSVs, combined with their customizable payload packages, have the flexibility to meet the needs of fleets in multiple vertical markets with zero emissions and a lower total cost of ownership.
Under the terms of the five-year MOU, Tropos and Momentum will collaborate to offer a complete solution to meet the increasing demands of organizations that are adopting electrified technology to replace traditional low speed vehicles. Together, the companies will offer the Tropos Motors eLSV portfolio, paired with flexible financing options, service, maintenance support, logistics and charging infrastructure consulting services from Momentum to champion the adoption of eLSVs. They are forecasting to jointly deliver up to 30,000 fleet vehicles over the next five years.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Momentum to leverage the strengths and resources of both companies,” said John, Bautista, CEO of Tropos Technologies. “Our best-in-class technology portfolio, coupled with their turn-key fleet management and infrastructure consulting support will help customers transition to electric simply and quickly. We believe eLSVs will become increasingly important to the market given the zero-emissions and reduced total cost of ownership when compared to traditional vehicles.”
“Our customer base, which includes two of the largest fleet buying groups in the North America, continues to assess electrified solution offerings—with the preference of an EV option, when it fits the use case,” said Jack Pyros, CEO of Momentum Groups. “We have an ability to offer a broad range of applications with Tropos Motors-real work trucks that are specified to meet fleet operator needs. These are not just the golf cart platforms we see from other providers—but fully functioning, powerful utility vehicles. When paired with the power of the Momentum’s full-scale purchase and leasing options, our nationwide delivery network, maintenance and charging infrastructure services, we have created a low barrier to entry for companies looking to move to electric.”
