|ADOMANI(R) Enters U.S. Electric Truck Market; Expects to Receive Four Units in July and to Accept Orders in Q4 2018|
Significantly Expands Total Addressable Market: a Total of 296,000 Class 3 Trucks and 208,000 Class 4-7 Trucks Were Sold in 2016 in the United States
CORONA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 19, 2018 / ADOMANI, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADOM), a provider of advanced zero-emission and hybrid vehicle drivetrain solutions and purpose-built electric vehicles, announced today that it will enter the U.S. electric truck market. President and CEO Jim Reynolds, accompanied by COO Rick Eckert, will travel to China and Malaysia in early July to meet with ADOMANI®'s partner, Envirotech Drive Systems Incorporated (EVT), and to visit its production facility in anticipation of receiving four zero-emission all-electric Class 3 delivery trucks in early July for ADOMANI®'s entry in the U.S. electric truck market.
"Our primary goal for this trip is to meet with our electric vehicle partner, EVT, in preparation for the arrival and launch of our new zero-emission all-electric Class 3 and 4 trucks in the U.S. market. We are very excited about this opportunity, which would substantially expand our total addressable market," said Reynolds.
The initial four ADOMANI®-branded trucks will be tested internally and must be certified by the required California agencies before ADOMANI® can begin taking orders, which ADOMANI® currently anticipates will occur in the fourth quarter of 2018. The trucks will be designed to qualify for HVIP funding in California ranging from $50,000 to $80,000 per vehicle.
Eckert added, "Electric vehicles are gaining momentum globally, with China leading the market, and California taking the lead in the United States. The race is on for all-electric trucks of all classes since electric vehicles help reduce greenhouse gases that can lead to global warming, improve overall air quality and address health issues created by vehicles powered by internal combustion engines. California is a leader in clean air initiatives, and China has recently initiated many measures to address pollution as well. We believe that both markets need such vehicles and that there is an opportunity for ADOMANI® to help meet that demand."
