CORONA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 25, 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 expects to receive the first of its Class 3 all-electric zero-emission delivery trucks in mid-August 2018, with the initial Class 4 delivery trucks to follow in September 2018. The ADOMANI®-branded all-electric zero-emission trucks are designed to be configured to meet many industry needs, including local delivery services, package delivery and school district white fleet services, among others.
ADOMANI® CEO, Jim Reynolds and COO, Rick Eckert recently returned from a trip to Malaysia and China during which they visited the facilities of the current manufacturers of component parts used in the assembly of ADOMANI's new zero-emission all-electric Class 3 and 4 delivery trucks and the factories of several potential new suppliers. Once received, the trucks will undergo testing by ADOMANI®, after which ADOMANI® will submit the trucks for certifications in the United States and Canada, which it expects to occur by the early fourth quarter of 2018. Subsequently, ADOMANI® intends to offer the delivery trucks for sale through its sales network and anticipates that deliveries will begin in early 2019.
Mr. Reynolds stated, "I'm very impressed with the progress made to date by our manufacturing partners on the all-electric zero-emission ADOMANI®-branded delivery trucks since we announced our entry in the market, and I look forward to seeing the first EV trucks traveling on U.S. highways in 2019."

Class 3 zero-emission trucks are eligible for up to $55,000 per vehicle and Class 4 zero-emission trucks are eligible for up to $90,000 in incentives through various state programs.
