BLUE ASH, Ohio, Oct. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMP Holding Inc. (OTCBB:AMPD), a company engaged in the emission-free electrification of OEM vehicles, announced it will be attending and participating in the Detroit Ride-and-Drive event at the Business of Plugging In conference, taking place in Detroit, October 12-14.

"This year's conference is indeed timely, as this is the year PEVs will actually be hitting U.S. roads. AMP's technology has earned it a place at the conference alongside industry giants like Nissan and GM. This forum is an excellent facilitator of meaningful and relevant discussion on the future of the PEV market," said David E. Cole, chairman emeritus of the Center for Automotive Research.
