One of the more overlooked reasons to buy an electric utility vehicle vs a truck is the ability to customize. When you buy a utility cart from Polaris GEM or Taylor-Dunn, you get a hardworking, reliable vehicle and only pay for what you need.
Many of our customers find significant savings by switching to versatile, low-maintenance electric vehicles. Large fleets can expect six-figure fleet reduction costs by switching to electric utility vehicles and significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
- Why pay for a truck that can go 90 mph if your vehicles never travel on the freeway?
- How much could you save by not having to pay for oil changes and other engine-related maintenance?
Electric vehicles can go all day on a single charge, tow up to 10,000 lbs, and handle cargo up to 3,000 lbs. Plus, they cost significantly less to own compared to traditional trucks and vans.
Owning an electric vehicle doesn't mean sacrificing comfort or capability. Get exactly the vehicle you need customized with: ladder racks, custom storage, heater, stake sides, etc. Here are the most popular accessories with our customers in Northern and Central California:
