GGT Electric, a Michigan-based automotive engineering, design and manufacturing company, stated that the vans will be used for multiple purposes, such as campus supervision, grounds maintenance, parking meter enforcement, personal transportation, light hauling, and others.
“We’re proud to have our electric vehicles operating in so many American institutions and we’re extremely excited to now have the great state of South Carolina as a new partner,” says Ray Leduc, CEO of GGT Electric.
“The mission of our company is clear. We are working to advance the adoption of all-electric vehicles in North America in order to protect our environment, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and provide safer, cleaner, and less-expensive options to fleet and automotive buyers. We can’t wait to see one of our electric vans driving through the streets of Columbia, South Carolina!”
