Australian Electric Vehicles built its first Trackless Train in 1983. Since then, the company has built and commissioned over 80 units around Australia and overseas. All units including the original unit are still in service today.
Trackless Trains and other people moving systems are proving more and more popular, and the variety of sites in which they are utilised is growing each year. Botanical Gardens, Tourist sites, Shopping centers, Amusement and Theme Parks, Hotels and Resorts, Hospitals, and in fact, any area where people congregate and need transportation other than mainstream transportation needs.
Over the years Australian Electric Vehicles have designed and built people moving systems to reflect the client's need including the particular “theme” or image that is desired for the site.
The Company's product range caters for most requirements with the options of LPG/Natural gas, petrol, diesel or electric motive power to provide cost-effective transport, and in many cases, generating income for the client.
Australian Electric Vehicles prides itself on the quality and reliability of its products which have proven themselves through the test of time.
