Twenty-five donated GEM electric cars serve Brockton, Massachusetts in multiple roles

Published: 31-Dec-2003

BROCKTON — From patrolling reservoirs to golf course maintenance and ferrying the athletic trainer to injured athletes on the field, more than two dozen donated electric cars have been plugged into duty around the city.

The City Council accepted 25 Global Electric Motorcars from DaimlerChrysler Co. in September. Since then, they have been charged up and ready to go for various departments, including the schools, parks and cemeteries, water treatment plant and Parking Authority.

"It's a nice little vehicle," said Parking Authority employee Robert Wise. "They're nice and quiet."
