Torres Visits Phoenix Motorcars in Ontario

ONTARIO, CA – Today, U.S. Representative Norma J. Torres (D-Pomona) visited Phoenix Motorcars in Ontario as the last stop on her annual “Made in the 35th” manufacturing tour. Each all-electric zero-emission vehicle produced by Phoenix Motorcars reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60 tons of carbon monoxide per year as compared to a comparable commercial vehicle.

“Fighting climate change begins here in the Inland Empire. For more than 15 years, Phoenix Motorcars has been a leader in manufacturing electric vehicles that make our region cleaner and greener. I’m pleased to close out my ‘Made in the 35th’ tour with such an innovative business,” said Torres. “I’ll continue pushing for policies that help our local manufacturers grow, create good paying jobs, promote sustainability, and keep California’s economy strong.”

“As always our focus it to provide a safe, zero emissions, 100 percent electric vehicle of the highest quality to our customers while providing exceptional jobs and job training with our cutting edge technology all while making the planet a better place. We are very excited to host Representative Norma Torres and show her all the exciting projects we are working on,” said Tarek Helou, Vice President of Sales for Phoenix Motorcars.

Phoenix Motorcars, founded in 2003, is a leader in developing medium and heavy duty electric vehicles for the commercial markets. Phoenix Motorcars strives to provide fleets with clean transportation and renewable energy through advanced technology solutions and remains committed to excellence in electric vehicle innovation.
