What's the relationship between BravoEV.com and EVTWorld.com

What's the relationship/scoop on these two companies? BravoEV.com & EVTWorld.com
Is one the primary importer?
Do they both import the same base models; same factory?
Is one Mid & Eastern US, other's Western Distributor?

They seem to list (at least)some of the same dealers.

emailed one so far to no response.

Are there others using "EVT" beside these three:

EVTAmerica
-brushed motors
EVTWorld
-brushed motors
BravoEV
-now w/brushless motor for 2009

Good find.. and I haven't a clue about BravoEV

At one point a few years ago EVTWorld did become the sole solitary importer of EVT Taiwan scooters into the U.S. It's possible that EVT Taiwan wanted to change the arrangement.

Hi Reikiman,

Yeah, GreenRides gets their EVT's through Bravo, out of Washington State.
GreenRides is their distributor for California.

Hmm, does anyone know if these are Mainland China sleds/parts, assembled in Taiwan, or if the whole bike is built in Taiwan?

Maybe someone can enlighten us.

Frames, electronics and recently motors are made in Taiwan, plastics and some other stuff are made in China.
I´m not sure exactly which parts, front wheel and brakes might be.
Bikes are put together in Kao-Hsiung in southern Taiwan.

Thanks Johnny,
Are these two companies the same entity?
There are just such odd relationships in this EV world!

Bravo Electric Vehicles is a subsidiary of Alpha Industries of Bellingham, WA. (Check out www.alpha.com.) Alpha is a fairly large company operating in several industries. One of their biggest businesses is industrial UPSs (Uninterruptible Power Supplies aka battery backup power). They also have a growing business as a distributor and systems integrator for commercial photovoltaic solar power systems. Bravo is the sole US distributor of EVT scooters. EVT is a totally different company based in Taiwan that manufactures electric scotoers.

In the interest of full disclosure I should say that I am opening an electric vehicle retail store in the Boston, MA area and I am a distributor of Bravo EVT scooters.
