Don Panoz will take the wraps off his newest project later this month, with a press conference scheduled at Le Mans to unveil a new “road racing concept.”
The American Le Mans Series founder, who was most recently spearheaded the DeltaWing project, will present a “never-before attempted” concept on Thurs. June 15, in the Le Mans paddock.
It will involve the newly created Green4U Technologies, Inc., which Panoz is listed as the Chairman and founder.
Brian Willis, the Vice President of Engineering and Design of the company, will also be in attendance.
Panoz has long sought to bring an all-electric car to Le Mans, potentially as a Garage 56 entry, although it’s understood this undisclosed project does not currently have the backing of the ACO for a future entry in the French endurance classic.
According to its Web site, Green4U was founded in September 2016 to “meet the growing demand for electric vehicles” for the fleet vehicle market, such as taxis, military units, logistics companies and individual consumers.
The company’s Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) lineup will be available to order this month, with initial deliveries set for the fourth quarter of this year, with passenger vans available early next year.
