To Drive The Fight Against Breast Cancer
Tomberlin, a manufacturer of advanced electric vehicles for master-planned communities, open-neighborhoods, golf courses and short-distance commuting, has partnered with the Michigan affiliate of Susan G. Komen, a leader in the fight against breast cancer. Together, they have introduced a customized Susan G. Komen E-Merge electric personal transportation vehicle (PTV). Consumers can now enjoy a safe, high performing and stylish vehicle while supporting breast cancer research, patient support, education and advocacy.
“The Tomberlin design for the Susan G. Komen car has inspired us with its thoughtfulness and dedication to the 3 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States. We are looking forward to a wonderful partnership with Tomberlin, and we are very excited to see this beautiful car bringing breast cancer awareness to our community!” states Jen Henkel, Director of Donor Relations with Susan G. Komen Michigan.
The Komen car is a customized Tomberlin E-Merge E2 SS Coupe featuring a striking automotive black-and-pink paint scheme with silver metallic flecks that represent the millions of people who have struggled with the disease. Plush black-and-white seats feature an embroidered Komen logo. The vehicle, engineered with power steering and four-wheel hydraulic brakes, which improve both maneuverability and safety, are exclusive features not found on other PTV or golf cart brands. Other standard amenities include a unique key and lockable steering column to guard against theft, onboard charger for convenient “wherever” charging, and 14-inch aluminum wheels.
And, like other Tomberlin vehicles, the Komen model is equipped with industry-exclusive standard features including three-point seat belts, headlights, brake lights, turn signals, automotive windshield with a wiper blade, rear-view mirror with a backup camera and can be licensed as a street-legal low-speed vehicle (LSV) once registered in your state.
“Our tagline — We Go Farther — relates not only to our products, but also to our dedication to national and community outreach programs,” says Chris Plummer, spokesperson for Tomberlin. “In that spirit, we are taking a stand against breast cancer, a disease that affects millions of American women and families, by making a sizable donation from the sale of each Komen vehicle to the chapter foundation. And our goal is to work with other chapters on a state by state basis to increase our support for the Foundation.”
