GEM introduces industry's first nationwide comprehensive Neighborhood Electric Vehicle warranty

Global Electric Motorcars now offers GEMCare — a comprehensive warranty that allows new owners to enjoy 24-hour roadside assistance from any location, protection against major mechanical breakdowns, and towing. Every new GEM owner now enjoys 12 months of GEMCare with the purchase of their vehicle.

Fargo, N.D.—Global Electric Motorcars now offers GEMCare — a comprehensive warranty that allows new owners to enjoy 24-hour roadside assistance from any location, protection against major mechanical breakdowns, and towing. Every new GEM owner now enjoys 12 months of GEMCare with the purchase of their vehicle, with an optional 12-24-month extension.


No other neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) manufacturer provides this degree of comprehensive warranty coverage on their vehicles.

"We're committed to ensuring that GEM drivers have an optimal experience with our vehicles. We're able to offer a comprehensive warranty plan because we believe in the quality of GEM vehicles. The GEMCare program shows our steadfast dedication to customers and reinforces our market leadership in plug-in electric transportation," says Rick Kasper, president and chief operating officer.

All warranty services are provided by authorized GEM service providers. The all-inclusive coverage means that GEM will repair or replace all GEM parts that fail under normal use. The 24-hour roadside assistance includes towing and collision assistance.

The warranty introduction comes on the heels of GEM's 2007 model launch, which includes its new extra-duty utility electric vehicle, the GEM eL XD, which features a long-back bed and a half-ton of payload capacity.

"With the advances applied to our 2007 models and the introduction of GEMCare, people can get the cost and emissions benefits of electric vehicles along with real performance and peace of mind," Kasper says.

More than 33,000 GEM vehicles are on the road today providing clean, quiet, efficient and affordable transportation. With zero emissions, they are an alternative to conventional vehicles and can have a significant impact on air quality.
