Miles Electric was one of two vehicle companies invited to attend and showcase their alternative fuel vehicles at the GreenXchange Global Marketplace Conference in Los Angeles December 10-11, 2007. The GreenXchange Global Marketplace Conference aims to facilitate and accelerate the diffusion of sustainable, green technology on a global scale.

With growing demand for an efficient and available alternative fuel vehicle, commissioners of the GreenXchange Global Marketplace Conference, held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza December 10-11 in Los Angeles, turned to Miles Electric Vehicles as the company to deliver on this promise.

"We are honored to be one of two automobile manufacturers chosen to showcase its vehicles," said Miles representative Zion Enos. "Our improved line of all electric low speed vehicles utilizes advanced 3 phase induction AC motor technology and has generated substantial excitement in the fleet community because of their quality, reliability and performance. These vehicles and other technologies discussed here at the Global Marketplace Conference represent a growing international response to reduce hydrocarbon emissions and expand sustainable practices," he said.                                        

Only three vehicles were featured outside conference doors: the Miles ZX40S Advanced Design car, the Miles ZX40ST work truck and the BMW Hydrogen 7. The Miles models were the only vehicles available to test drive at the conference. Enos also noted that the Miles models are not concept cars but full production vehicles that are currently for sale in the U.S. market.

The GreenXchange Global Marketplace Conference aims to facilitate and accelerate the diffusion of sustainable, green technology on a global scale. The conference will focus on six main topic areas: non-renewable energy; renewable energy; air, water and waste; clean tech, IT, transport and infrastructure; capitalizing green tech; and climate change policy. Featured speakers include Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa, and Governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, as well as representatives from numerous other organizations including Google, Environmental Defense, G24 Innovations and the California Public Utilities Commission.

Miles Electric Vehicles is now successfully marketing a line of low speed, all electric cars and trucks, which combine the best of U.S. electric motor and controller technology with China's advanced battery and vehicle manufacturing capabilities. All Miles vehicles conform to U.S. NHTSA standards and are manufactured with safety and comfort as prime considerations. To date the company has built a prestigious fleet customer base that includes the City of Chicago, NASA, UCLA, Cal Sate Polytechnic University, Stanford University, the US Navy, and the Sacramento Municipal Utility District. Building on its low speed production expertise, Miles is proceeding to develop the first safe, affordable, mass produced highway speed all electric vehicle for distribution in the U.S. and EU in 2009.

Founded in 2005 by activist/entrepreneur Miles Rubin, Miles Electric Vehicles is headquartered at the Santa Monica Airport in California.
