Albion Golf Cars Partners with GEM to Introduce Low-Speed Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicle manufacturer Waev Inc. has taken a significant step towards enhancing sustainable transportation solutions in Ontario by partnering with Albion Golf Cars.

As of June 18, 2024, Albion Golf Cars, a reputable provider of high-quality golf carts and utility vehicles, has become Toronto’s first authorized dealer of GEM electric vehicles. The collaboration aims to meet the increasing demand for low-speed vehicles (LSVs) in the region, offering a wider range of eco-friendly transportation options for both personal and commercial use.

Waev Inc., known for its commitment to innovation and sustainability, sees this partnership as a perfect fit with Albion Golf Cars’ dedication to providing top-tier vehicle solutions. Paul Vitrano, Head of International Business Development at Waev Inc., expressed optimism about the collaboration, stating, “GEM is a viable transportation solution, especially for cities and individuals prioritizing safety and sustainability. As the city of Toronto explores a new micromobility strategy, we look forward to educating the community on our low-speed electric vehicles in collaboration with Albion Golf Cars.”

Vitrano stated that Albion Golf Cars has a proven track record of excellence in the industry, and “We are confident that their expertise and dedication will further enhance the GEM ownership experience for Ontario residents. Together, we look forward to empowering individuals and businesses to embrace more sustainable transportation solutions.”

The City of Toronto’s Transportation Services report highlights growing public support for LSVs. These vehicles are considered greener and safer alternatives to heavier, faster cars, SUVs, vans, or trucks.

LSVs are particularly valued for personal travel and commercial parcel delivery services, aligning well with Toronto’s micromobility strategy. The introduction of GEM vehicles by Albion Golf Cars is expected to cater to this burgeoning interest, providing residents with practical, eco-friendly transportation options.

Peter Butler, President of Albion Golf Cars, shared his enthusiasm for the new venture: “We are dedicated to and passionate about providing innovative vehicle solutions that are customer-focused and meet the mobility demands of today. With interest in safe and green modes of transportation on the rise, GEM low-speed vehicles are the perfect addition to our offerings. We are thrilled to work with GEM as we continue to help customers meet their sustainability and transportation goals.”

Albion Golf Cars will now offer a comprehensive lineup of GEM electric cars and utility vehicles, renowned for their performance, safety, and environmental benefits. These vehicles, ranging from compact passenger models to versatile utility versions, are designed to cater to diverse customer needs while significantly reducing carbon emissions. The GEM vehicles, with their spacious interiors and comfort-focused design, come equipped with three-point seatbelts, turn signals, and backup cameras. They also meet the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for LSVs, featuring an Occupant Protection System (OPS) that is roof crush certified, ensuring a safer environment for both vehicles and pedestrians.

The GEM vehicle lineup includes two-, four-, and six-seat models, as well as truck options, catering to a wide range of applications. These vehicles are ideal for individuals, cities, campuses, and communities looking to adopt sustainable transportation solutions. With their commitment to quality and customer service, Albion Golf Cars is well-positioned to assist customers in finding the perfect electric vehicle to suit their lifestyle and transportation needs.
