Three Reasons Municipalities Keep Coming Back to Parking Specific Vehicles

Westward Industries, the North American manufacturers of the GO-4, just finished the first five months of 2021 with a busy production line, expecting to keep up the pace as COVID restrictions ease throughout the USA.

The most recent orders came from new customers like the city of Manassas, ordering a  GO-4 for their Parking management, as well as returning municipalities like the city of Sarasota, ordering another Electric GO-4 to add to their fleet of PSVs. Westward Industries is also shipping 4 Electric units of our GO-4 EV with Air Conditioning and Genetec Autovu factory mounted LPR to the famous campus Texas A&M.  New MAX-EV’s continue to ship to distributors across the country to create product awareness with Westward customers.

Chris Franz, an owner of Westward Industries, says: “The GO-4 EV is a smart asset for municipalities right now. Our studies have shown multiple benefits of investing in them: fuel savings, minimal maintenance, increased time efficiency and ROI are huge reasons our customers order and reorder our vehicles. It just makes sense to purchase or lease electric right now as we see the parking sector picking up its activities once again.  Electric allows for continued and significant fuel savings which is great to offset compromised revenues from 2020.”

Westward Industries continues to work towards an electric and green future and expects EV’s to become a majority of shipments over the next 12-24 months.   More EV’s shipping and more returning customers means the company is on the right track to make 2021 and 2022 excellent years, a refreshing change in a post pandemic world.
