Miles Electric Vehicles is a manufacturer and distributor of all electric vehicles and was founded by entrepreneur/philanthropist Miles Rubin , with a mission to change the world one car at a time.
Based in Los Angeles, California, the company is privately held by Miles Rubin. The company gained prominence in 2005 when it began sales of the ZX40 electric vehicle, the first street-legal Chinese-made electric automobile sold in the United States. Miles Electric Vehicles, built on steel unibody chassis, are the world's first crash tested NEVs to achieve DoT, CARB and NHTSA compliance. The company was recently given the "Electric Car Company of 2007" award by Good Clean Tech.
MILES current line-up of electric vehicles include the ZX40S small SUV, the ZX40S Advanced Design small SUV, and the ZX40ST work truck. MILES’ low speed, all electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions and deliver strikingly low operating costs, making them a great fit for greening fleets nationwide.
For the 2008 MILES introduced AC(alternating current) electric motors for its low-speed electric vehicles. The advanced three phase, brushless AC induction motor offers 4-times the available power of typical DC motors, and has a 25,000+ mile estimated lifetime. The AC motors are paired to a Curtis-Albright AC Motor Controllers and optimized for superior hill climbing performance --historically an issue for many electric vehicles.
