OSCEOLA, AR / ACCESSWIRE / March 11, 2022 / Envirotech Vehicles, Inc. (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 an additional 18 vouchers with a total value of approximately $1.4M toward the purchase of 13 of the Company's Class 4 high/low-roof logistics vans and five of the Company's Class 4 urban trucks to Envirotech customers.

To date, under this program, Envirotech Vehicles' customers have received voucher grants toward the purchase of 31 vehicles with a total value of $2,651,250.
"We are thrilled to announce that NJ ZIP has approved another 18 vouchers towards the purchase 13 of our best-in-class electric vehicles, this time for a total value of just over $1.4 million," Phillip Oldridge, CEO of Envirotech Vehicles commented. "For many businesses, their goal of transitioning to electric vehicles is hampered by the cost of making the transition to cleaner transportation, but the NJ Zip program makes it possible for companies to meet their green transportation goals. NJ ZIP continues to provide important momentum for the sale of our best-in-class electric trucks and vans and we're energized to have this opportunity to provide our vehicles as more and more New Jersey businesses make the switch to environmentally friendly fleet vehicles."
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.
