Authorized Columbia Par Car Distributor

Standard and Custom Utility Vehicles

columbia-logo

Columbia product line’s heritage stretches back to 1946, making Columbia the most experienced manufacturer in its field, and has been cared for by such well-known as Westinghouse and Harley Davidson.

The assembly focus of each of Columbia’s products is on producing vehicles with the longest life-cycle in the industry. Using the highest quality materials available, Columbia’s energy efficient vehicles will serve our customers well for years to come. Columbia believes a product that lasts longer reduces their overall impact on the environment. With this same concern for the environment in mind, Columbia is one of a handful of vehicle manufacturers committed to exclusively building Pure Electric vehicles. As they work to reduce the overall impact on the environment, it is encouraging to know the final product is propelled by the cleanest commercially viable energy source with zero tailpipe emissions. All of Columbia’s manufacturing processes are in compliance with each applicable governing body’s most stringent requirements.

As compared to its competitors, Columbia’s vehicles include:

  • Steel frames and bodies that utilize thicker gauged steel (longer-life)
  • The most robust drive motor (better operation in hot/harsh environments)
  • The most efficient power control system (more usable range on a charge)
  • The most efficient charger (less energy used to charge vehicle)
  • Intelligent energy recovery braking (wasted energy recycled to recharge batteries)
  • Easily programmable performance characteristics (only energy actually needed is expended)
