Oregon company will export EarthCruiser

A Bend, Ore., company that makes vehicles for remote, rugged travel is preparing to export its first vehicle, which will go to Mongolia. EarthCruiser owner Lance Gillies says his company delivered its first vehicle to an American customer about two months ago. He says the plant has two or three vehicles in production at any given time, but he hopes to ramp that up to 50. The average price of the vehicle is $210,000.
