Green Automotive Company Announces Binding Agreement To Acquire Going Green Limited, The Biggest Retailer Of Electric Vehicles In Europe

Green Automotive Company (OTC:GACR), having recently acquired Liberty Electric Cars Ltd in Europe, announced today that it has signed a binding agreement to buy UK-based electric vehicle distributor Going Green Limited ( www.goingreen.co.uk). Going Green Limited, doing business under the brand name “GoinGreen,” has sold over 1400 of the highly successful G-Wiz electric vehicles, making it Europe’s largest single retailer of electric vehicles and generating annual revenues in excess of $1 Million.

GoinGreen was founded in 2002 and, from the beginning, adopted the mission to minimize the effects of climate change by encouraging carbon-neutral motoring. The company pioneered electric vehicles (EV) in the UK with the G-Wiz, an EV designed in California and manufactured in India by the Indo-Reva Electric Car company.

With over 1400 vehicles distributed in the UK alone, GoinGreen has sold the highest number of EVs from a single retail point in any European country. GoinGreen has accumulated over 60 million miles of electric vehicle user experience, and developed a world-class team with more than 100 years combined EV, automotive, mechanical and electrical engineering experience.

Faced with a car market dominated by global car companies, GoinGreen revolutionized the European automotive market thanks to its innovative approach to sales and marketing: the G-Wiz became a British Icon so much so that it was featured in the European Cultural TV channel ARTE “What Brits Love” during the 2012 Olympics.

After 10 years as the leader in EVs in the UK, GoinGreen is now looking to the future as the company continually strives to improve its business, introduce new products and service options and make EVs even more accessible.

GoinGreen celebrated its 10 th year in business in 2012 by embarking on a program to become the first “1 stop shop” for sales of all forms of EV transport – from electric bikes and scooters to electric motor bikes; from electric city cars to electric vans and trucks, all complemented by GoinGreen’s after-sales support and service.

Commenting on the agreement, Mr. Ian Hobday, Board Director of Green Automotive Company, said, “GoinGreen adds to our Liberty business in the UK, and positions us as the UK’s primary EV retailer. GoinGreen also fits perfectly with Green Automotive’s ambitions to develop its EV presence both in Europe and North America. As other regions and cities adopt measures to reduce urban pollution we anticipate Green Automotive moving quickly to establish GoinGreen franchises in many areas, including the US, introducing our high quality, unique range of EVs and e-bikes, and, most importantly, providing a full range of after-sales support.”
