(OTCQX:EVTV), a provider of new zero-emission, purpose-built electric vehicles (the "Company"), announced today that the New Jersey Zero Emissions Incentive Program ("NJ ZIP or the "Program") has awarded one voucher with a total value of $796,000 toward the purchase of five of the Company's Class 4 C5000 cutaway logistics vans and three Class 4 trucks.

Phillip Oldridge, CEO of Envirotech Vehicles, commented, "With this voucher, Envirotech Vehicles has now achieved over $3 million in total orders from NJ ZIP. Since our approval as a vendor last year, NJ ZIP has been a strong driver of our increasing sales numbers and we look forward to continuing to provide our best-in-class fleet of electric trucks and vans to businesses throughout New Jersey looking to make the switch to zero-emission transportation."
NJ ZIP is a $15 million pilot voucher program that supports businesses and institutions purchasing new, zero-emission vehicles operating in the greater Newark and greater Camden areas by offering up to $100,000 towards the purchase of battery-electric vehicles. The Program intends to fund 100 to 300 vouchers ranging in value from $25,000 to $100,000 for businesses and institutional organizations looking to transition their fleets to zero emissions. Bonuses are available for small businesses and minority-, women-, and veteran-owned businesses. NJ ZIP is funded by proceeds allocated to the New Jersey Economic Development Authority ("NJEDA") by the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative ("RGGI") for the purposes of reducing harmful emissions, especially in communities disproportionately impacted by transportation emissions, and creating economic opportunity within the state.
