CINCINNATI-- AMP Holding Inc., a company engaged in the emission-free electrification of OEM SUVs, today announced its new AMP Mercedes ML EV, with new Generation 3 Drivetrain will be on-hand for test drives at the Business of Plugging In (BPI) Conference, October 11th and 12th in Dearborn, Michigan.

"The BPI conference will be a great opportunity for journalists and visitors to take a test drive in our latest generation of the AMP Mercedes ML EV," said Jim Taylor, CEO AMP. "Our new Generation 3 Drivetrain delivers a great driving experience with plenty of pick up and very refined. We feel the fact that the AMP EV carries the known pedigree of Mercedes-Benz will be very attractive to our EV customers."
