EVAmerica was founded by Albert E. Curtis III, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), as a Limited Liability Company on March 16, 2006 to own the assets, provide space, management staff, and employees, to design, develop, manufacture and assemble electric and hybrid-electric medium to heavy duty vehicles. The company was publicly announced by Congressman Zack Wamp, 3rd District Representative of Tennessee at the Tennessee Valley Corridor 2006 National Summit in Chattanooga, Tennessee on June 1st.
will become the premier designer, developer and manufacturer/assembler
of electric and hybrid-electric medium to heavy duty vehicles in
the United States. Additionally, the company will offer hybrid
systems for installation in other manufacturer's vehicle's through
the Power and Propulsion Division of the company.
The organization will begin by developing 22-foot electric buses with the latest and best technology comparable to those already operating in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The company will grow, in a controlled and systematic process, to develop three or four more models that may include the use of auxiliary power units for hybridization. We will assure that the company will employ individuals with a strong knowledge of the electric and hybrid-electric vehicle industry, a clear understanding of the benefits and challenges of advanced technology vehicles, and experience in public transportation, the initial market for EVAmerica.
