Sustainability

College and university campuses across the country are moving their vehicles away from fossil fuels and are switching to electric vehicles (Environment America Research and Policy Centre).

Large public universities and community colleges alike, from every corner of the U.S., are taking the lead in reducing energy consumption, deploying renewable energy technologies, and switching to electric vehicles (EVs). (Environment America)

Leading campuses are not just cleaning up their buildings, but also their transportation systems by transitioning their fleets away from fossil fuel powered vehicles and towards electric vehicles (EVs). (Environment America)

More than 250 cities have committed to fleet electrification to meet their sustainability goals as part of the Climate Mayors Electric Vehicle Purchasing Collaborative (Environment America Research and Policy Centre).

Smart Cities

As demand for goods in urban areas grows, challenges will increase for “last-mile” movement of goods from freight hubs to their final destinations. Truck drivers face special challenges in an urban setting—from determining a route, to finding a place to park, to getting around safely among cyclists and pedestrians (U.S Department of Transportation). LSVs can fill this gap.

Reduced Emissions

Even in a conservative scenario, the World Economic Forum predicts battery electric vehicles and H2 electric vehicles can reduce CO2 emissions by 16% and 24%, respectively (World Economic Forum).

Lower Operating Costs

Operating costs of AYRO EV’s are typically 50% less per year when compared to traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

Commercial fleets have reported numerous operational advantages to EVs, like eliminating trips to the gas station and less scheduled maintenance.

McKinsey & Company estimates suggest that EV fleets can have a total cost of ownership that is 15-25% less than that of equivalent ICE vehicles by 2030.

Commercial fleets have reported numerous operational advantages to EVs, like eliminating trips to the gas station. “For some parcel delivery fleets – particularly in dense urban areas – this reduces employee downtime. Utility and other service vehicles report that electrically powered buckets reduce ambient noise at the jobsite and contribute to a safe work environment.” (Midwest Evolve)

Growing Popularity

College and university campuses across the country are moving their vehicles away from fossil fuels and are switching to electric vehicles (EVs). Of the 261 schools included in this ranking, 229 – or 88 percent – have at least one EV. And over 60 percent of the campus-owned vehicles at the top 10 schools in this ranking are EVs. (Environment America)

Light-duty vehicles accounted for a majority of the last mile delivery market in 2020 and are expected to maintain the majority share of the market from 2021-2027 (All The Research).

Purpose-built electric fleets provide a wide range of benefits, including, but not limited to:

Lower Operating Costs: With fewer moving parts resulting in less maintenance and repairs, higher efficiency and lower costs for electricity versus gas or diesel fuels, our purpose-built EVs have the potential to deliver an average annual operating costs that are 50% less when compared to their gas-powered counterparts.

Improve Logistics: The Current is ideal for low-speed logistics and cargo services. It has the agility and versatility that’s essential in a campus environment and fills the gap between full-sized trucks and small utility carts.

Meet Sustainability Targets: AYRO vehicles meet California Air Resource Board (CARB) certification for zero-emissions. Electrifying a commercial fleet supports broader sustainability initiatives by helping to decarbonize transportation. In fact, fleet electrification could help reduce carbon emissions by 194,000 tons over the next four years (Geotab).

Customize for Your Needs: AYRO vehicles have a variety of configurations and features available, ensuring the vehicle can meet the needs and preferences of nearly any fleet or facility manager.

AYRO’s EVs produce zero emissions and deliver a carbon-neutral footprint. This is a requirement for any transportation and logistics operation or institution to achieve their sustainability goals. Many institutions are recognizing this connection and the importance of meeting their targets. For example, college and university campuses across the country are moving their vehicles away from fossil fuels and are switching to EVs. Out of the 261 schools included in a collegiate clean energy report from Environment America, 88% have at least one EV.

AYRO designs and produces purpose-built electric vehicles (EVs) to enable sustainable commercial fleets for last-mile delivery, microdistribution and campus mobility applications.

The Club Car Current is a low-speed vehicle (LSV) that comes in flat bed, pickup, and van box configurations. The Current is the only zero-emission, purpose-built EV that is optimized to support the needs of any college, business, hospital, hotel, resort, arena, or other campus.

AYRO also coordinates with key partners to develop specialized vehicle solutions. Gallery’s mobile hospitality vehicles are built on the Club Car 411 and Current and are customized to deliver food and beverages to customers at the point-of-demand.

Most recently, AYRO developed the Electric Vaccine Vehicle (EVV) to support the needs of on-demand and mobile clinics for testing and vaccine administration. It can also be used to aid in disaster relief.

AYRO has a number of leading marketing, sales, and service partners that serve North America and global expansion markets.

Commercial customers interested in ordering vehicles can submit a customizable request through our retail partner Club Car.

Larger scale AYRO fleet requests are facilitated by our fleet management partner Element.

Contact Gallery Carts to inquire about their mobile hospitality solutions and Electric Vaccine Vehicle (EVV) that utilize AYRO vehicles.

AYRO EVs are capable of charging from different sources. Where EV charging infrastructure does not exist, the vehicles can charge from a standard 110V/20A electrical socket in less than 8 hours. Where higher voltage charging stations are present, vehicles can rapid charge in less than 2.7 hours.

Yes. The Club Car Current LSV can be driven (with a valid driver’s license) on roads with speed limits of up to 35 mph. This makes it perfect not only for closed campuses, but also for micro distribution in urban centers and car-free zones.*

We do not sell directly to customers, but any commercial customer can submit a customizable order through our retail partners Club Car or Element. AYRO is currently focused on the U.S., Canadian and Mexican markets.

Businesses and organizations looking to deploy electric fleets nationwide can be confident that AYRO vehicles will perform in all conditions, regardless of snow, sleet, or rain.

The Current has two-wheel rear-wheel drive and can operate in colder climates where snow is common. It also has heating and ventilation to ensure drivers are comfortable.

There are a variety of factors that impact traction battery life, the main batteries that power the drive system, including but not limited to battery chemistry, driving style, and outside temperatures. AYRO vehicles offer two types of battery chemistry: VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) and Li NMC (Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt).

In normal conditions, either battery chemistry will provide solid service life for most applications. Best practices are provided in the Operator’s Manual.

This depends on the configuration and application. Low-speed vehicle (LSV) configurations can be registered and licensed to operate at up to 25 mph on streets with posted speeds up to 35 mph.* Non-LSVs can be programmed to travel at either 15 mph or 20 mph, depending on the guidelines of the localized property they operate on.

The Club Car Current is a low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) which has many benefits for businesses. For example, it can operate throughout university and corporate campuses—both on roads and within buildings—and it is permitted in car-free zones, which are becoming more popular in cities around the globe.

Versatile for any microdistribution task, AYRO EVs are currently serving food on university campuses; supporting local delivery for restaurants; and moving goods and equipment around government and corporate campuses, hospitals, hotel resorts, sports stadiums, and airports.
