KCBS interviews Mike Ryan about Triac and Green Vehicles

On Monday this week KCBS San Francisco spent about two hours with Green Vehicles president Mike Ryan, test driving a Triac and asking people's impressions. Watch the 2-minute news clip here. Pulling into a gas station (where no Triac ever needs to go), the interviewer asked people what they thought of the looks, and how they felt about the fact that the Triac will be produced in Salinas, CA. In short, the "person on the street" impressions were positive!

San Jose Mercury News, "Triac ... getting ready to hit the streets"

The San Jose Mercury News Tech section for Monday, November 29, featured Green Vehicles and an interview with president Mike Ryan.
Is there a Triac in your future? Maybe -- if your conscience has evolved to a deep shade of green and you have $25,000 to spare on a locally manufactured, three-wheeled gasless electric vehicle with a 100-mile range. ... It's no Tesla, but that's the point, Ryan says. The Triac is a less costly vehicle for an environmentally conscious lifestyle.

100 people turn out for reception announcing Green Vehicles & Leyden Energy EV battery partnership

OK, we don't have an exact count, but our guesstimate is 100 people came out in the cold and rain on Saturday, November 20 to participate in a reception at Green Vehicles' manufacturing facility in Salinas, CA. The reception was held to announce the partnership between Green Vehicles and our battery supplier, Leyden Energy of Fremont.  We had a good showing from EV enthusiasts, Salinas residents, local politicians, and media. The size of the turn-out exceeded our expectations for a Saturday afternoon corporate event. What a testament to the excitement and expectations surrounding affordable, clean transportation options for freeway commuters. Many thanks to everyone who attended!

Here are links to a media coverage that resulted from the event:

Roughly 100 people joined us at the reception in the Green Vehicles manufacturing facility.
