CINCINNATI, Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AMP Holding Inc. (OTCBB and OTCQB: AMPD), an electric vehicle company, specializing in SUV Electric Vehicles, today announced that the company will unveil an expansion of their product line with an iconic American SUV – now 100% electric.

The new AMP model is based on a vehicle with an All-American image. The new model is designed to be attractive to fleet users in the United States who desire to take a public stance on zero-carbon and zero-emissions.  Final assembly of the vehicle will be done at AMP's new Ohio production facility, which will also build AMP's 100% electric Mercedes Benz ML model.

The official unveiling of this new all-electric vehicle will occur at the 2012 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January.  A running prototype of the groundbreaking EV will be on-hand for test drives on the Ride & Drive Track.

"The new AMP model is our latest 100% electric offering and a demonstration of our proprietary technology for SUVs, giving a driving range of 100+ miles.  Where most EVs are small, compact or subcompact, our mission is to give our EV buyers vehicles that the greatest percent of the car-buying public prefers," said Jim Taylor, AMP CEO. "The opportunity to test drive it at the Detroit Show will give visitors a first hand experience of what we have achieved in this state of the art electric SUV."

Along with the Mercedes ML, the addition of this new model AMP will give EV buyers two great SUV choices in the emerging EV market.
