Acadia GEM—an all-electric way to explore Acadia National Park—has launched a 45-car fleet, seating two, four or six passengers per vehicle.
Waev's GEM (Global Electric Motorcar) vehicles are 100% electric low-speed vehicles and legal on any paved road posted at 35 miles per hour or less. They are made in the USA.
Acadia GEM began as an idea for a way to explore Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park in an easy-to-maneuver vehicle. Jeff Young and Eben Salvatore, co-owners of the new business, have lived on Mount Desert Island all their lives and have decades of experience accommodating visitors in Bar Harbor.
"Millions of people visit Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park every summer," said Young. "Our fleet allows them a fully electric and fun way to explore the area. Our GEMs have a glass roof and removable doors, which really provides an amazing quiet and open-air Acadia experience."
