Waev Inc. adds Colorado Golf & Turf and expands Welch Equipment with new authorized GEM dealer showrooms in Denver metro.

Denver, Colo., June 20, 2023 – Colorado is committed to increasing electric vehicles (EVs) on the road; and Denver residents now have more options for sustainable travel. Today, EV manufacturer Waev Inc. announced two new Denver-area authorized GEM dealer showrooms to help meet EV demand within the state: Colorado Golf & Turf, located in Littleton, Colorado, and Welch Equipment, with a new location in Denver. The dealers will provide the local market with inventory and support of GEM electric low-speed vehicles (LSVs).

Colorado Department of Transportation and Energy recently set a goal of having 2 million electric cars and SUVs on the state’s roads by 2035. EV sales in Colorado are currently on the rise – with the battery-only and plug-in hybrid vehicle market share at 10.5 percent in 2022, up from 6.5 percent in 2021,  according to the Colorado Automobile Dealers Association. Through expanded access to GEM vehicles, Waev and its dealer network are helping contribute to the state’s sustainability goal with a low-speed vehicle option for residents. Customers will have the opportunity to learn more about LSVs, get a hands-on view of the vehicles, and experience GEM through test drives. The dedicated dealership staff can also guide customers through ordering a custom configured vehicle specifically suited to their lifestyle. 

“We’re thrilled to continue building the momentum with GEM in Colorado with Colorado Golf & Turf and expanding our partnership with Welch Equipment to Denver. Together, we’re able to provide the residents with more access to GEM electric vehicles,” said Brandon Erlandson, West Regional Manager, Waev Inc. “With speed limits of 30 mph or lower throughout Colorado business and residential districts, neighborhoods in the Greater Denver Metro are well suited for low-speed vehicles, and GEM captures the growing demand for sustainable, safe, convenient and enjoyable personal transportation.” 

Meet GEM at the Intersection of Style, Sustainability and Safety

GEM electric vehicles are the ultimate personal transport vehicles. Designated as low-speed vehicles, GEM vehicles are street-legal on most roads posted 35 mph or less and charged by standard outlets. Two, four or six seat models come with ample space, allowing passengers to travel in comfort. GEMs also are among the lowest-cost, four-wheel, electric motor vehicles in the U.S. to own and operate at about $0.03 per mile. They are made to order in Anaheim, California with factory-installed accessories for the highest quality finish. The vehicles offer a uniquely fun ride for drivers and passengers alike without sacrificing safety features like forward-facing bucket seats, three-point seatbelts, signals and headlights, automotive-grade windshield, side and rearview mirror, back-up camera and front and rear hydraulic brakes.
