ABC Companies expanded its distribution agreement with Turtle Top to offer its Odyssey, Terra Transit, and Vanterra product line in locations covering the eastern seaboard in Georgia, New York State, Oklahoma, and Texas.
The Turtle Top conversions will be available on a number of performance chassis’ including the Ford E 350, E450, F550, F600, and Freightliner S2C.
ABC will offer combustion and 100% battery electric versions of its models, providing EV options for Turtle Top premium shuttles with seating configurations to accommodate up to 34 riders and multiple wheelchair options.
The expansion strengthens ABC’s position in the passenger van and shuttle space as micro transit and on-demand services are expanding.
“We are excited to expand distribution of Turtle Top products for our customers with these high-quality commercial passenger vehicle options that can bring greater service flexibility and proven quality to their operations,” said Thom Peebles, VP, marketing, ABC Companies. “These proven performers can help customers take advantage of the growing needs in their municipal and regional communities for microtransit, mobility as a service and paratransit applications, as well as applications from airport shuttles to premium passenger transport operations.”
Offered through ABC’s Specialty Vehicles & Technologies division, ABC said Turtle Top buyers can expect the same levels of technical expertise, service, and parts support that the company brings to the private motorcoach industry.
“ABC Companies offers a comprehensive portfolio of service, parts, warranty and customer care support behind every sale," said Matt Sausaman, GM of Turtle Top. "This approach ensures the high quality of our Turtle Top products will be supported with equally high standards of service for our shared customers."
