EVI, a producer of Alternative Energy Vehicles (AEVs), announced significant and early 2013 gains in the medium and heavy-duty truck manufacturing industry sectors.
“This is an exciting time for EVI, and consumers worldwide,” noted Ricky Hanna, President and CEO of EVI. “We’re proud to provide a commercial zero emission solution for today’s goods movement industry that sets the stage for stable and sustainable fleet management for decades to come.”
Most recently, EVI was recognized by California Governor Jerry Brown for manufacturing and delivering over 15 trucks a month for UPS’s landmark 100-vehicle purchase order. EVI has manufactured and successfully deployed 50 of those medium duty trucks to date and employs roughly 60 staff in its Stockton Californiafacility.
Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) has partnered with EVI in an effort to Co-Promote its all-electric Walk-In Van, which is built on an FCCC chassis. As part of this effort, FCCC and EVI will jointly work together to target electric vehicle compatible fleets.
“FCCC has been a longtime leader in developing alternative-fuel propulsion chassis, and we see our work with EVI in the development of all-electric products as an important area of focus and opportunity,” said Bob Harbin , President of FCCC. “As you can see, EVI has experienced strong interest in this product, and we are excited about what the future holds for the development and expansion of all-electric products in the light- and medium-duty truck market.”
