Green Auto Orders Cars for Independent EPA/DOT Compliance Testing

New 100% Electric SUV Set for Crash Test

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) -  Green Automotive Company, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GACR) announced today that the company has ordered ten All Electric Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) from the manufacturer Zotye in China for the purpose of having an independent lab provide the EPA/DOT Certification and Compliance (also referred to as "Crash Testing"). 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a legislative mandate under Title 49 of the United States Code, Chapter 301, Motor Vehicle Safety, to issue Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Regulations to which manufacturers of motor vehicle and equipment items must conform and certify compliance. FMVSS 209 was the first standard to become effective on March 1, 1967. A number of FMVSS became effective for vehicles manufactured on and after January 1, 1968. Subsequently, other FMVSS have been issued. New standards including 305 for All Electric Vehicles and amendments to existing standards are published in the Federal Register.

These Federal safety standards are regulations written in terms of minimum safety performance requirements for motor vehicles or items of motor vehicle equipment. These requirements are specified in such a manner "that the public is protected against unreasonable risk of crashes occurring as a result of the design, construction, or performance of motor vehicles and is also protected against unreasonable risk of death or injury in the event crashes do occur."

Steven Fly said, "We have been working diligently with the factory in China as well as with our new USA Dealers to fine tune any changes before the first round of SUV's are ordered and put through the series of FMVSS testing procedures. This (crash testing) is the final step of our due diligence before the SUV's become available for sale throughout America. It is important for Consumers to understand that the EPA/DOT safety compliance is Green Automotives' number one priority in putting a safe and reliable vehicle on the highways of North America."

The Zotye All Electric SUV comes Standard with: State of the art Lithium Ion Batteries, Leather Seating, A/C & Heat, Power windows/Power locks, DVD Audio System with Navigation and Back up Camera, Battery Management System, Regular On Board Charging and fast charging port, Automatic transmission (8:1 ratio), Five Door Seats 4 , Max Speed: up to 70 mph, with a range of up to 150 miles.
