Travelers who park at Los Angeles International Airport will be taking all-electric shuttle buses from WallyPark’s lots to catch their flights. As we noted last month, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles are becoming electrified, with deployments in transit districts and fleets throughout the U.S.
Phoenix Motorcars Deploys All Electric Fleet
WallyPark Premier (LAX) is 1st All Electric Depot
Electric Buses Revolutionize Airport Shuttle Fleets
Ontario, CA. (March 22, 2017) – Phoenix Motorcars LLC., a manufacturer of electric vehicles for the fleet market, continues its rapid growth by deploying 16 of its Zero Emissions Utility Shuttle (ZEUS) buses to WallyPark Premier, a subsidiary of the L&R Group of Companies and leaders in the airport shuttle bus industry. The 14-passenger fully electric buses are being used to service off-airport parking at Los Angeles International Airport. This deployment makes WallyPark Premier the 1st all electric airport parking depot in the nation.
Phoenix will continue electrifying and deploying buses to other L&R parking depots such as Joe’s Parking, Avistar and Airport Center.
“We are pleased to partner with Phoenix Motorcars as we electrify our fleet of buses. We are committed to this technology, and to providing our customers with a superior driving experience,” said L & R’s Head of Operations Ed Pomponio.
Each of the buses is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60 tons of carbon dioxide per year, compared to a conventional diesel shuttle. All buses have fast-charging capability, which allows full charging to take place in less than three hours.
“In addition to providing a great driving experience, we look to provide our clients sizeable savings in fueling and maintenance costs”, said Phoenix Director of Sales Tarek Helou. “L&R’s vision will change the market landscape and make a positive impact in the Airport, Hotel and Parking industry”.
The L&R Group of Companies offer premier parking facilities in major metropolitan areas across the nation (including Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Newark, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Diego and Seattle). WallyPark features valet and self-parking, shuttle service, and valet express check-in/check-out services, as well as car care services that include auto washing/detailing, window tinting, and oil changes at select locations. Joe’s Auto Parks, growing rapidly throughout the USA, is one of Los Angeles’ largest parking operations with more than 85 downtown locations.
Phoenix Motorcars is focused on commercial and government fleet customers. Fleets are the ideal customers for EVs, due to their vehicle usage patterns, centralized operation and high fuel consumption. In addition to the environmentally friendly aspects of EVs, they offer significant cost benefits over the total life of the vehicle.
