Phillip Oldridge, CEO of Envirotech Vehicles, commented, "We reported strong revenue growth for the quarter and tremendous momentum in our business with heightened interest from the marketplace as evidenced by the many strategic partnerships, programs, and agreements we announced. It was gratifying to see several customer contracts that we've pursued during the past year convert into the sale and delivery of our vehicles. In the third quarter, we delivered a total of eight vehicles to customers through a combination of our expanding factory authorized representative, or FAR, network, the New Jersey Zero Emissions Incentive Program, and via individual sales. Additionally, the New Jersey Zero Emissions Incentive Program has approved a total of 13 vouchers for our customers, 12 of which remain outstanding for an aggregate value of approximately $1.1 million for the future purchase of our vehicles, representing a strong and increasing demand for our best-in-class fleet."

Highlights and Recent Company Developments:

  • Announced our intent to enter into a transaction with ProGreens New Energy Technology Co. Ltd., pursuant to which, as currently contemplated, we would purchase certain battery manufacturing equipment from ProGreens and, if we are able to close the transaction and effectively execute our plan to establish a U.S. manufacturing facility, would position us as one of the few EV companies with in-house battery manufacturing capabilities. Completion of the purchase is subject to certain conditions, including the negotiation and execution of a definitive purchase agreement and approval by our Board of Directors.
  • New Jersey Zero Emissions Incentive Program has approved a total of 13 vouchers, 12 of which remain outstanding for an aggregate value of approximately $1.1 million towards the future purchase of the Company's vehicles.
  • Signed a FAR agreement with Shine Solar, LLC, allowing the Rogers, Arkansas based solar energy equipment provider to promote, sell and service Envirotech Vehicles' products throughout the United States; delivered one van and one truck to Shine Solar, for demonstration use.
  • Entered into a FAR Agreement with Wasatch Clean Energy, the a Salt Lake City, Utah based truck and van equipment installation provider for the promotion, sale and service of Envirotech products throughout the United States; delivered three trucks and one cargo van to Basin Upfitting, an affiliate of Wasatch Clean Energy.
  • Delivered one truck to Electric Junk and Hauling, LLC, based in Kensington, California
  • Announced the appointment of Larry Caughlan as the Company's General Counsel.

Mr. Oldridge continued, "Furthering this growth and increase in demand for EVs is the American Jobs Plan, announced by the Biden administration in March of 2021, as well as the infrastructure bill passed by congress late last week. We believe we are in the final phases of choosing a location for a U.S. manufacturing facility, with which we would be well positioned to benefit from these legislative initiatives. Relocating our operations to the U.S. would also qualify us to benefit from consumer incentive programs and tax credits associated with the purchase of American made zero-emission, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, while also improving margins and reducing supply chain risks associated with importing our vehicles from Asia. This would be a transformative next step for our business, and we look forward to keeping you apprised."
