Phillip Oldridge, CEO of Envirotech Vehicles, commented, "Throughout 2021, we experienced a significant increase in order activity for our best-in-class fleet of electric trucks and vans. State and federal voucher programs like the New Jersey Zero Emission Incentive Program (NJ ZIP), for which we are an approved vendor, continue to grant vouchers to our customers for the purchase of our vehicles, as well as heightened order activity from our factory authorized representative, or FAR, network. In February 2022, we announced that we will be opening a 580,000 square foot state of the art manufacturing facility in Osceola, Arkansas, uniquely positioning us as one of the only EV companies with manufacturing capabilities in the United States. Since then, we've completed final assembly on several electric vehicles at the facility. As the only licensed vehicle manufacturer in the state of Arkansas, this is a major milestone for both Envirotech Vehicles and the community of Osceola, and we look forward to ramping our manufacturing capabilities as we progress through 2022.
Highlights and Recent Company Developments:
- Opened a state-of-the-art 580,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Osceola, Arkansas. Envirotech Vehicles is now one of the only EV companies with manufacturing capabilities in the United States establishing an early and crucial foothold in the rapidly growing U.S. EV market.
- New Jersey Zero Emissions Incentive Program awarded an additional 18 vouchers at a total value of approximately $1.4 million towards the purchase of the Company's vehicles. To date, NJ ZIP has awarded voucher grants for the purchase of 31 of the Company's vehicles at a total value of aaproximately $2.7 million.
- Introduced a fully electric right side driving cargo van as an ideal solution for delivery fleets that will allow drivers to deliver postage and packages without exiting the vehicle.
- Signed a FAR agreement with Central State Bus Sales allowing the Fenton, Missouri-based bus provider to promote, sell and service Envirotech Vehicles products.
- Delivered 10 Class 4 high-roof logistics vans to Kingbee Rentals and two up-fitted box trucks to Louis Sardo Bus & Coach Upholstery.
- Announced the addition of Christian Rodich as Chief Financial Officer on 2/1/2022 and the promotion of Sue Emry to Executive Vice President on 12/1/2021.
- Graduated to the OTCQX Best Market and changed our ticker symbol to ‘EVTV'.
Mr. Oldridge continued, "In addition to our new facility, we increased our visibility by listing our stock on the OTCQX and changed our ticker ‘EVTV' to better reflect our new name and brand. We are seeing tremendous interest in our vehicles, and we've focused on ensuring we have the appropriate inventory levels to meet market demand. In November of 2021, we received delivery of 40 vehicles and ended the year with 68 vehicles in our inventory. We received an additional 58 class 4 vans in February of 2022 including 10 of our new right side drive delivery vans. Looking forward, we believe that we are well positioned to meet the increasing demand for our products and complete deliveries to our customers both efficiently and in a timely manner. Given the strength of our pipeline, our backlog, and with the logistical complexities of relocating our operations to Arkansas largely behind us, we are confident that we'll be able to capitalize on the momentum we built in 2021 and deliver a strong 2022 with sequential revenue growth in Q1 2022 over Q4 of 2021."
