SURREY — DSG Global, Inc. has announced multiple new models of electric vehicles (EVs) added to its growing product lineup.

DSG Global subsidiary Imperium Motor Corp. is expanding its T01personal vehicle line with a new mobility model. This model allows the user to control turning, braking, turn signals, horn and acceleration all from the handlebar without the use of foot pedals, an alternative option for those who need or wish to drive the T-01 with hand controls only.

“Our goal is to facilitate freedom and independence for a segment of the population that historically been unable to drive due to high costs of adaptive vehicles. While it typically costs $500 – $2000 to modify a car to allow for hand controls, we are pleased to be able to offer the Adaptive Mobility Control T-01 model at NO additional cost,” said Rick Curtis, president of Imperium Motor Corp., in a prepared statement. “Our partner, Jonway Group, has the ability to develop and perfect specialized vehicles at a faster pace than most other low-speed vehicle manufacturers, and we are delighted to have them as part of our team.”

Also, arriving early in the second quarter will be our new Imperium 12 Meter Class Bus, offered in 35 to 60 seat arrangements with a maximum capacity of 95 passengers.

The Imperium Bus has Better Ride Dynamics through its monocoque construction, which integrates the chassis and body as one part. The floor pan can be placed much lower using monocoque construction, giving the vehicle a lower center of gravity.

The US electric bus market is anticipated to grow from $469 million in 2019 to $1.5 billion in 2024 and demand is expected to continue to outpace production capabilities.
