COSTA MESA — A local manufacturer of personal mobility vehicles, T3 Motion Inc., is a finalist for company of the year through CleanTech OC, the manufacturer announced last week.
International sales of electric vehicles manufactured by T3 Motion, used for private and government security purposes, include distribution in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Kuwait, Singapore and France, according to a June article in the Daily Pilot.
In January, the Pentagon bought two T3 ESV models, single-rider, stand-up electric vehicles.
CleanTech OC, a clean energy and technology industry trade publication, will name the winner during the CleanTech OC 2011 Conference and Expo on Monday at the Irvine Hyatt Regency.
Other finalists include Amonix, FlexEnergy, M2 Renewables and Phoenix Energy Technologies.
T3 Motion’s zero gas emission T3 Series recharges in less than four hours, using about 1.5 kilowatt of electricity and can travel the equivalent of 500 mpg, according to the company website.
