Phoenix Motorcars Joins SNUGTOP at SEMA Show

ONTARIO, CA--(Marketwire - October 26, 2007) - Phoenix Motorcars, a California-based electric vehicle company, will join SNUGTOP as an exhibitor at the SEMA show attended by over 100,000 automobile industry buyers. Phoenix Motorcars and SNUGTOP recently formed a partnership to provide the SnugLid tonneau cover as an OEM product for Phoenix's all-electric sports utility truck (SUT).

SEMA attendees are encouraged to visit SNUGTOP's booth, 31137, located in the trucks, SUV's and off-road hall to see the Phoenix SUT and learn why the SUT is an energy-efficient solution for utility companies and government agencies that require fleet vehicles.

"This is our second year exhibiting at SEMA and we are thrilled to be showcased with SNUGTOP and their premier product lines," said Daniel J. Elliott, CEO of Phoenix Motorcars. "The SnugLid is a top quality product which aligns perfectly with our vehicle."

Phoenix Motorcars has sold over 500 fleet-ready vehicles for 2008 delivery to premier fleet companies. A limited number of vehicles will be available to consumers in 2009 with an expanded consumer launch scheduled for 2010.

Phoenix's advanced battery-electric, zero-emission SUT can travel at freeway-speeds while carrying five passengers and a full payload. The vehicle exceeds all specifications for a Type III ZEV. Having a driving range of over 100 miles, it is equipped with a non-toxic, revolutionary Altairnano NanoSafe™ (NASDAQ: ALTI) lithium-titinate battery, which can be recharged in less than 10 minutes and has a battery pack with a life of greater than 250,000 miles.
