T3 Motion, Inc., a producer of clean tech/green tech electric personal mobility vehicles, announced that the first shipment of T3 Series Electric Stand-up Vehicles (ESV) of $117,600 has been shipped to Luxury Carts, exclusive T3 ESV distributor in Saudi Arabia. Luxury Carts has placed a blanket purchase order to purchase multiple T3 ESVs for up to $1,881,000 earlier this month, to supply law enforcement agencies and security companies throughout Saudi Arabia. Luxury Carts may purchase the additional T3 ESVs through August 31, 2012.

The T3 ESV will be used for many security and law enforcement applications throughout Saudi Arabia. Distributors anticipate that the ESVs will be used for the first time during Saudi Arabia’s most prevalent tourist event, Hajj. The T3 ESVs would be used for security and as emergency responders throughout the event.

This shipment further solidifies T3 Motion’s presence in the Middle East, with contractual agreements in Qatar, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt and the UAE. In addition to the Saudi Arabia order, the ministry of interior in Kuwait is expected to release an order for a significant number of T3 ESVs.

"This shipment signifies the beginning of a long relationship with T3 Motion and Saudi Arabia," stated Ki Nam, CEO of T3 Motion. "The Middle East represents a broad market for personal mobility vehicles, and this shipment represents our company’s growing global influence."

Upon purchase, Mr. Bakr, Managing Director of Luxury Carts, stated "Luxury Carts is very pleased to be T3 Motion’s distributor for Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Corporation Council are increasingly conscious of using clean, green and alternative energy vehicles. We are very proud to be launching the T3 vehicle and look forward to having them used for the first time for Hajj at Mecca this year. We see the T3 as a significant advancement for the security industry, both government and private, in our country."
