The Tennessean discusses how the City of Franklin is considering the HiLine XG-2 from VerdeGoh! as the replacement for its aging, gas-powered traffic enforcement vehicle. It should be noted that the City of Franklin may have budgeted for a "Pinto", but ultimately realized that they needed/wanted the "Cadillac". VerdeGoh! gave the best and most competitive bid we could under the specifications given to us by the City of Franklin.

VerdeGoh! – General Store Plans approved by the City of Franklin!, Tomberlin unveils the Shelby Cobra GT-500 Special Edition Emerge E2 and is finally bringing the ANVIL to market this year.


Our second round of plans for the VerdeGoh! – General Store in Westhaven Town Center were approved by the City of Franklin today. We have been working on this part of the VerdeGoh! master plan since late 2006. It's very exciting knowing that we'll pull building permits next week to get this store built-out quickly and open. Our sustainabile-lifestyle General Store concept will be the most comprehensive and innovative of its kind in the region. We can't wait to help Middle Tennesseans learn what "green" means to them.

There's also some exciting things happening at Tomberlin. This year, Tomberlin is offering a Shelby Cobra-inspired Emerge E2 as its special edition. This unique, limited edition Emerge E2 bears the Carroll Shelby endorsement and trademarks, while also having a whole bunch of performance and aesthetic upgrades. This is a great, aggressive neighborhood vehicle sure to turn heads and delight any auto racing enthusiast. Check under the Tomberlin section of our site for more info and photos and call us for pricing info.

Speaking of aggressive. Tomberlin is finally launcing the ANVIL this year. Expected delivery is this summer. The ANVIL is like the Emerge on steroids and then some. You can go to http://www.reservemyanvil.com for photos, specs and other info on this "suburban assault vehicle". For you macho, adventure guys out there, this will be the one to ride. VerdeGoh! – Electric Vehicles should have a demo of the ANVIL late spring, early summer.

The 2009 Tax Credits for NEVs (i.e. VerdeGoh!'s current electric cars) are in JEOPARDY. We need your help! The big automobile lobbyists are trying to kill the Tax Credits already planned for Neighborhood Electric Vehicles for the 2009 tax cycle. Particularly, pressure is being applied to the Federal Senate Finance Committee. The "Big Guys" don't want American Taxpayers to buy any electric vehicles unless they come from the "Big Guys".

The problem is, the "Big Guys" won't have product for 2-3 years, whereas you can buy street-legal electric cars from VerdeGoh! and other small, innovative dealers like us TODAY. Please contact your Congressional Senators and the Senate Finance Committee IMMEDIATELY and tell them to support Senator Hatch and Senator Cantwell's Amendment S. 271 that allows Tax Credits for NEVs to start THIS YEAR as Congress intended when it passed the Alternative Energy Incentive legislation last October.
