SAN ANTONIO, TX. – January 11, 2023 – Based on Frost & Sullivan’s recent assessment of the electric low-speed vehicle (LSV) industry, it recognizes AYRO with the 2023 North American New Product Innovation Award. The company offers sustainable LSV solutions that maximize payload reconfigurability, payload capacity, and the ability to traverse and operate in environments without harming them through air or noise pollution. AYRO’s LSV solutions are designed and purpose-built to automotive OEM standards, as its product line roadmap engenders a family of derivative platforms utilizing common subsystems.
AYRO Vanish has several stand-out features, such as the highly customizable and adaptable bed configurations that make it suitable for both light-duty and heavy-duty applications. The vehicle is equipped with a lithium-ion battery that has a range of around 50 miles on a single charge, and its expected starting price will be competitive. The first test vehicles were rolled out in 2022 and pre-orders will open in early 2023. AYRO Vanish’s compact, efficient, and sustainable design fits diverse use cases and is versatile enough for any micro-distribution task, such as serving food on university campuses, supporting local delivery for restaurants, and moving goods and equipment around local areas.
Marshall Martin, best practices research analyst, observed, “When compared to small gas- or diesel-powered trucks or vans, the Vanish features a 50% reduction in weight, approximately 49% reduction in annual operating expenses, and 47% reduction in overall volume or size, allowing it to maneuver in tight spaces and go where other LSVs cannot.”
AYRO’s vehicle fleet navigates campuses and narrow urban streets seamlessly while also carrying significant loads for meeting last-mile distribution challenges—features that most other EVs are not designed to handle. A true reflection of AYRO’s reliability and quality is its patent files. It has now filed two new design patents, multiple underlying seminal patents in sustainability, four US utility patents, and has two US utility patent applications in process.
“AYRO has remained at the forefront of technological innovation since its inception, making it quite challenging for competitors to replicate its unique solutions. It has the ability to locate the perfect white spot and offer a product in a hybrid market that fulfills its customers’ requirements and reduces carbon emissions,” added Martin. With its strong overall performance, AYRO earns the 2023 North American Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award in the electric low-speed vehicle industry.
