Overview

Columbia ParCar Corp. is proud of more than 60 years of success in the electric vehicle industry. Columbia builds task-oriented vehicles that fit a variety of applications. Whether you are moving 1-26 people, hauling loads up to 5200lbs or towing up to 7 tons, Columbia has an electric vehicle to make your work easier. Switching to electric vehicles from noisy, smelly gas will not only eliminate your tailpipe emission and lessen your team’s environmental impact but will also make anywhere your team operates more comfortable to work and visit. 

Commercial Vehicles – Street-legal Low Speed Vehicles (LSV) and utility vehicles for use off road. These vehicles are used on college campuses, in K-12 districts, at correctional facilities, by facilities maintenance teams, by parks and recreation departments and other municipalities and counties. With zero tail-pipe emissions, and quiet operation, these are great replacements for gas and diesel vehicles.

Industrial Vehicles – Heavy duty vehicles to be used in warehousing, manufacturing and maintenance. There are models for moving one, two, or more people and for tugging and hauling heavy loads. These vehicles are built from the strongest materials and are designed to hold up in the harshest environments. 

Adding Columbia vehicles to your fleet can increase employee productivity and multiply the return on investment per team member. Not only can agencies quickly purchase utility vehicles to help move people and loads easier, but enables agencies to lessen their environmental impact if using electric vehicles.
