DSG Global is pleased to announce that its newly formed automotive division will be named Imperium Motor Company®. The new electric vehicles will offer a lower-cost alternative to what now exists in the US, with emphasis on great design, performance, and functionality.
Richard (Rick) Curtis, Jr. will head this new division as the Company aggressively penetrates this multi-billion-dollar market with a unique and fully integrated product offering. Rick brings 40 years of senior automotive management experience in retail, wholesale, distribution and final manufacturing, including an extensive background in the Electric Vehicle (EV) market. He also brings broad relationships with municipalities, national fleets, and dealers across North America. Through its exclusive North American manufacturing partnership with Zhejiang Jonway Group Co., Ltd. (“Jonway Group”), a PRC-based company that has already sold and serviced over 100,000 electric vehicles in the United States, Imperium Motor Company® anticipates becoming a leader in the EV Market.
The new location of the Imperium® EV Experience Center, in Vacaville, CA is located midway between Silicon Valley and Sacramento, CA. These are two of the largest EV markets in California, which are currently responsible for approximately 50% of the United States EV sales. The Company expects that at the Imperium® EV Experience Center customers will be able to see and drive all the Imperium® EV products. Dealer support, training, and education will also be provided at the center. The Jonway manufactured Imperium® vehicles will include:
- Low-Speed Cars, Trucks, Vans and Scooter
- Mid Speed Utility Vehicles and Scooters
- High-Speed Person Transportation Devices and Scooters
- Off-Road UTV Utility Vehicles
Certain orders for the Jonway products have been placed in advance of the opening of the Experience Center; the current expected delivery of such orders is approximately four weeks. The US Certification process will begin immediately upon arrival of vehicles. Jonway is a worldwide leader of Low, Mid and High-Speed Electric vehicles. Imperium Motor Company is processing the appropriate licenses and is the exclusive distributor of Jonway for North America including the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean. The Imperium Motors EV Experience Center is currently slated to open during early March with sales expected to commence immediately.
“This is a game-changing moment for DSG Global. The electric vehicle market in North America is changing rapidly and is expected to grow from just under 2% of vehicle sales to nearly 10% of vehicle sales over the next few years. Large auto manufacturers are dedicating billions of dollars to the EV market. We are positioning the Company to enter market and are fortunate to have a leader in the industry like Rick Curtis, with a proven track record of performance, leading this project,” commented Robert Silzer, President and CEO DSG Global, Inc.
