After hearing about Green Lite Motors, Senator Merkley decided to drop by for a visit.
In addition to checking out our prototype and getting an overview of our plans, the Senator learned about our development partner -- Lux Performance. Presentations included an overview of Drive Oregon, the state's association for the electric vehicle industy, which recently received $1.2Million to help accelerate commercialization of companies like Green Lite Motors.
