TOMBERLIN SURPRISES PGA SHOW WITH LAUNCH OF NEW HYBRID CAR
Orlando, FL - Tomberlin Automotive Group surprised the PGA Show by unveiling the first production Hybrid LSV/GolfCar. Not only did Tomberlin unveil this new technology but they also operated a fleet of hybrid electric cars shuttling PGA Show attendees from local hotels to the Orange County Convention Center.
The Tomberlin E-Merge has a unique onboard charger allowing it to be plugged into almost any electrical outlet without having to carry a heavy, bulky, separate charger. The Hybrid E-Merge carries a small gasoline generator which simply plugs into the on-board charger. The Hybrid E-Merge runs on electricity for the first part of a journey and when additional range is needed the generator is started and simply charges the car's batteries while it is driven.
"It is like a spare tire for the batteries" said Dewey Holland, President of Tomberlin Automotive Group. We intend to drive our electric E-Merge shuttle fleet hundreds of miles during the PGA and Golf Industry Shows without ever plugging them into a wall to charge.
What is most amazing is that ar 2008-model Tomberlin E-Merge ca be converted into a Hybrid model in less than an hour and for less than $1,000.
The Tomberlin E-Merge E-2 and E-models were chosen for the conventions since they are street legal and meet Federal Neighborhood Electric Vehicle Standards.
