Street-legal GEM low-speed vehicles are available at CraneWorks dealerships in Birmingham and Mobile
Birmingham AL., Nov. 16, 2023 – Electric vehicle manufacturer Waev Inc. today announced Alabama-based CraneWorks as its latest authorized GEM dealer. Demand for electric low-speed vehicles (LSVs) is on the rise, aided by nearly $80 million recently allocated by the state of Alabama for the construction of EV infrastructure over the next five years. With locations in Birmingham and Mobile, CraneWorks will help meet this growing demand in Alabama’s north central and southern coast. Local businesses and individuals will have the opportunity to learn more about LSVs and experience GEM vehicles through test drives in addition to receiving support from the dedicated dealership staff.
“GEM is a safe, smart and enjoyable way to move around cities, campuses and communities,” said Luke Mulvaney, SVP and Co-Founder at Waev Inc. “We have a strong partner in CraneWorks to offer a great experience in the region to those interested in an EV for their job or their personal lives.”
Designed for style and comfort, GEM provides ample room for passengers or work crews. The two, four and six-seat models and truck options are designed for individuals, cities, campuses and communities interested in sustainable transportation. All-electric GEM LSVs are street-legal on many low-speed roads and cost $0.03 per mile to operate. GEM vehicles come standard with three-point seatbelts, turn signals and a backup camera, and exceed LSV NHTSA federal safety standards with an Occupant Protection System (OPS) that is roof crush certified.
“As we continue to see growing demand and applications for electric low-speed vehicles in Alabama, the addition of GEM uniquely positions our team to further support local communities and businesses,” said Kenny Bishop, President at CraneWorks. “We are super excited about this product and look forward consulting new and existing customers on how GEM can meet their electrification goals and fleet or individual vehicle needs.”
Alabama residents can learn about LSVs and experience GEM first-hand at CraneWorks test drive events and demos. Follow CraneWorks on Facebook and Instagram to watch for upcoming event dates. Commercial businesses, municipalities, hotels and resorts and local colleges and universities can contact CraneWorks to schedule a test drive by appointment.
