Yulon to sponsor 2010 Taipei Int'l Flora Expo with 20 LUXGEN BEVs.
Taipei, Nov. 4, 2010 (CENS) -- Yulon Motor Co. announced that it would sponsor the coming 2010 Taipei International Flora Exposition (2010 Taipei Int'l Flora Expo) by providing 20 LUXGEN EV+ battery electric vehicles (BEVs) for shuttling visitors.
The 2010 Taipei Int'l Flora Expo, a category A2B1 horticulture exposition, is scheduled for November 6, 2010 to April 25, 2011.
LUXGEN is a homegrown, locally-branded car made by Yulon, the largest automobile-manufacturing conglomerate in Taiwan.
Yulon says the EV sponsorship has two major implications: to let more local people experience the future-technology of EVs, and another to show the advancement of the local EV industry. During the coming six-months in the flora expo, Yulon's LUXGEN EV+ BEVs are expected to log some 350,000 kilometers and shuttle some 100,000 expo visitors.
The group pointed out that the overall energy efficiency of a BEV is double that of a traditional gasoline-engine car and 1.7-folds that of a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). If utilizing regenerated energy for the electricity, the efficiency can reach 80%. So, Yulon stressed that the BEVs are totally in-tune to the flora expo them of environmental protection and green-power.
Yulon's LUXGEN EV+ BEVs are available in three models: LUXGEN7 multi-purpose van (MPV), LUXGEN7 sport utility vehicle (SUV), and LUXGEN CEO, all of which use a 150kw high-efficiency motor rated at 201 hp and high torque of 220Nm, better than all the same-class counterparts in the market.
All flora-expo visitors can experience the BEV experience at six stops between different sites of the expo. See the routes for the LUXGEN BEVs at: http://www.luxgen-motor.com.tw/event/2010taipeiexpo/
