Enova Systems Receives NYSE Amex Exchange Compliance Notice

May 29, 2012

Torrance, CA – May 29, 2012 – As previously reported, on April 17, 2012, Enova Systems Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), (the “Company”) received notice (the “April Notice”) from the NYSE Amex LLC (the “Exchange”) indicating that the Company was not in compliance with one of the Exchange’s continued listing standards as set forth in Part 10 of the Exchange’s Company Guide (the “Exchange Guide”), and the Company was therefore subject to the procedures and requirements of Section 1009 of the Exchange Guide. Specifically, the Company was not in compliance with Section 1003(a) (iii) of the Exchange Guide because the Company reported stockholders’ equity of less than $6,000,000 for 2011 and the Company had incurred a loss from continuing operations and/or net losses for five consecutive years. As required by the April Notice, the Company submitted a Plan of Compliance to the Exchange on May 17, 2012 addressing how the Company intends to regain compliance with the continuing listing standards of the Exchange Guide within a maximum of 18 months (the “Plan Period”).

By letter dated May 22, 2012, the Company received an additional notice from the Exchange stating that a review of the Company’s Form 10-Q for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 indicated that the Company does not meet an additional listing requirement. Specifically, the Company is not in compliance with Exchange Guide Section 1003(a)(ii) because the Company reported stockholders’ equity of less than $4,000,000 and losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in three of its four most recent fiscal years.

Due to the higher stockholders’ equity requirement identified in the April Notice, the Company is not required by the Exchange to submit an additional Plan of Compliance in connection with the deficiency identified in the notice dated May 22, 2012. If the Plan of Compliance is accepted but the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards of the Company Guide by October 15, 2013 or if the Company is not making progress consistent with the plan during the Plan Period, the Exchange staff will initiate delisting procedures as appropriate. In such event, the Company may appeal an Exchange staff determination to initiate delisting proceedings in accordance with Section 1010 and Part 12 of the Company Guide.

Enova Announces Development of ACUMEN™ System

System designed to interface with all Worldwide EV and HEV technologies, including Natural Gas

May 23, 2012

TORRANCE, CA, May 23, 2012 – Enova (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, announced today it has begun development of its next generation system, code named ACUMEN™. With the completion of its OMNI™ drive system, the Company is now looking to further optimize its ability to interface with all worldwide EV and HEV systems, including those powered by natural gas.

Enova previously announced its new OMNI™ drive system which combines the 170kW OMNI™ Inverter with a new 10kW OMNI™ Charger with an entire range of AC Induction and Permanent Magnet motors. The OMNI™, now available, is expected to be a leading technology for the industry for years to come.

While OMNI™ was developed in house, with the ACUMEN™ system, Enova looks to evaluate and utilize technologies that are emerging worldwide. The Company is actively searching for the latest technologies to maintain OEM proven leadership and offer competitive advantages that make real business sense for vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators alike. The ACUMEN™ components are intended to feature a significantly smaller package, improved efficiencies and reduced weight, while achieving close to double the power density of older generation designs and competitors products. The new ACUMEN™-Series system will be power-source agnostic, including natural gas, and will offer increased application flexibility and ease of integration. With all digital control and plug-and-play connectivity, Enova intends to design ACUMEN™ to be compatible with all vehicle drive systems and motors so that it can be configured for HEV, PHEV and EV applications.

As a result of Enova’s initiative to develop ACUMEN™ using the industry’s most advanced technologies, the Company recently hosted EV France (www.ubifrance.com), a consortium of top French automotive manufacturers including Renault, Peugeot ad Volvo Truck, suppliers, clusters and research laboratories working in the field of hybrid and hybrid electric vehicles, advanced batteries and infrastructure support. Enova met with EV France representatives at its headquarters in Torrance, California to forge research, commercial and partnership opportunities. The group was able to view Enova’s technology as well as participate in an on-site ride and drive of Enova’s range of drive systems, including the new OMNITM drive system. France has the second largest auto market in the EU with over 2.2 Million cars sold in 2011. More EVs were sold in France in 2011 than in any other country in Europe. Germany has the largest automotive market in Europe and after France, the second largest EV market. Enova has also met with a similar group from Germany and will continue to mature these opportunities in its expansion into the European markets. In the UK, the third largest EU EV market, Enova already supplies both Smith Electric Vehicles as well as Optare, who just announced the launch of the Solo SR EV’s trials in Poundbury. http://www.optare.com/pr_18_05_12.htm

It is believed by Enova that recent reluctance in the industry to deploy large volumes of EVs validates the need for groups to compliment each other’s technologies to drive the industry. Mike Staran, Enova’s President and CEO said “The industry is at a position where we are trying to get enough critical mass to move forward, yet there remains extreme caution and a lack of urgency in regards to larger volume EV deployments. Enova’s aggressive approach towards forging worldwide partnerships should further strengthen our ability to control distribution channels and move past the caution that currently exists.”

Enova Systems Signs Purchase Agreements with Lincoln Park Capital, LLC

April 24, 2012

Torrance, CA April 24, 2012 – Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, announced today that it has signed a purchase agreement on April 24, 2012 for the sale, from time to time, of $3.4 million of its common stock, including an initial investment of $250,000, with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (LPC), a Chicago-based institutional investor. The securities LPC agreed to purchase under this purchase agreement were offered through a prospectus supplement pursuant to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement and base prospectus contained therein.

In addition, Enova previously entered into a separate purchase agreement with LPC that, subject to certain conditions including the effectiveness of a registration statement to be filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission covering the resale of the shares that may be issued to LPC, commits LPC to purchase up to $6.6 million of Enova’s common stock over a 36-month period. LPC has no right to require any sales by Enova, but is obligated to make purchases as Enova directs in its sole discretion in accordance with the purchase agreement, which may be terminated by Enova at any time, without cost or penalty.

“We are pleased to conclude on these funding agreements with LPC which provide us flexibility to pursue our business goals,” said Michael Staran, CEO of Enova. “We plan to use any proceeds from this agreement to fund current operations and implement value added initiatives”.

“As Enova looks forward to its future cash needs, we consider these LPC agreements to provide a backstop to enable Enova to continue pursuit of its business strategy” stated John Micek, CFO of Enova.

Under both agreements, there are no upper limits to the price LPC may pay to purchase Enova common stock. Any time that Enova elects to sell shares to LPC, the pricing of that sale will be fixed pursuant to a formula that is based upon the market price of Enova common stock immediately preceding the notice to LPC without any fixed discount. Accordingly, Enova will know on that date of notice the price per share that LPC will be required to pay.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities in this offering, nor will there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer solicitation or sale are unlawful prior to registration or qualification under securities laws of any such jurisdiction.

Enova Systems Delivers Electric Drive Systems to Optare Plc

120KW Systems to power All Electric Solo Bus

April 10, 2012

TORRANCE, CA April 9th, 2012 – Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, is pleased to announce that it has delivered 4 incremental 120kW drive systems to Optare Plc for integration into their Solo Electric Bus. Optare has chosen Enova as the production drive system supplier for their all electric buses. Optare designs, manufactures and sells single deck and double deck buses and mini coaches. Its buses operate in the UK, Continental Europe, and North America.

Mike Staran, Enova President and CEO said “Despite the industry downturn, Enova continues to ship product to core and incremental customers. We will continue this path as well as mature other initiatives that are intended to improve distribution channels.”

Additionally, and announced on March 23, 2012, commuters and bus passengers across England will see more eco-friendly buses on the roads, congestion reduced and services upgraded, thanks to a new £101 million package of improvements approved by Local Transport Minister Norman Baker. Five bus manufacturers will benefit from orders for their eco-friendly hybrid, electric and gas buses. They comprise: Volvo, Wrightbus, Optare, MAN and Alexander Dennis Limited, all of which are based in, or partly in, the UK.

Based on the award-winning Solo low-floor bus, of which over 4,000 are in service worldwide, the Solo EV produces zero tailpipe emissions. The model is based on a standard 27-seat 8.8 meter Solo, but the technology can be used on other models in the Optare range with higher passenger capacities. The Solo EV has been designed to perform exactly like a standard diesel powered bus, except that it is smoother, quieter and cleaner. It is completely traffic compatible, with good acceleration and hill climbing capabilities and a top speed of up to 90 km/hour. On a full charge it has a range of around 110-130 kilometers depending on load factors and topography.

Recently Optare announced that their long term future has been secured due to a refinancing agreement. The deal involved Ashok Leyland increasing its holding in Optare to 75.1% allowing Optare to become fully integrated in Ashok’s ambitious global bus strategy which seeks to maintain and improve on its top fifth place amongst the world’s bus makers. Ashok Leyland is the flagship of the Hinduja Group and a leading Indian commercial vehicle manufacturing company based in Chennai, selling approximately 94,000 vehicles and about 17,000 engines annually and is the second largest commercial vehicle company in India in the medium and heavy commercial vehicle segment, with a market share of about 25.7% in 2010/2011. Ashok is a market leader in the Indian bus market selling over 23,000 buses annually. The sales turnover of Ashok in 2010-11 was US $ 2.5 billion. Ashok has seven plants in India, one in the Czech Republic and one in the Middle East with a current global capacity of over 150,000 buses and trucks. In 2006 Ashok became the first automobile company in India to achieve the internationally renowned TS16949 certification.

Enova Announces Results for Year Ended December 31, 2011

April 3, 2012

TORRANCE, CA April 3, 2012 – Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS) (“Enova” or “the Company”), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, announced its 2011 financial results on Friday, March 30, 2012. The company reported revenues of $6.6M and gross margins of 3.9%, despite a significant downturn in the overall electric and hybrid market.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS:
• Annual revenue was $6.6M in 2011, a decrease of 23% from $8.6M in 2010 and Q4 2011 revenue was $638,000, a decrease of $3.1M from $3.7M for the same period in 2010. Customer orders decreased dramatically in the second half of the year due to tightened government and school district budgets, which resulted in a decrease in orders for our customers’ vehicles.

• Gross profit decreased to $0.3M in 2011 from $1.4M in 2010, and, in Q4, we swung to a gross loss of $618,000 from gross profit of $751,000 in the same period in 2010. Margins decreased, in particular in the second half of 2011, due to the lower sales base and our decision to record an increase in the inventory valuation reserve at year end.

• Overall, annual gross margin was 3.9% in 2011, down from 16.5% in 2010 and the gross margin in Q4 2011 decreased to a negative 97% compared to a positive margin of 20% for the same period in 2010.
Enova President and CEO Mike Staran stated, “With many of our suppliers and competitors facing insolvency and other crisis-type issues, we are encouraged with the announced initiatives we have made in extremely difficult market conditions. By remaining diligent in maturing what we consider game-changers such as Green For Free™, we believe that we have strengthened our position with our core customers, as well as begun to establish better control over the distribution channels in our market segment.”

Going Concern
Enova’s annual report on 10-K for 2011 filed with the SEC included an audit opinion containing a going concern qualification. This announcement is being made in compliance with Section 401(h) and Section 610(b) of the NYSE Amex Company Guide which require a NYSE Amex listed issuer receiving an audit opinion with a going concern qualification to make a public announcement to that effect.

2011 ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
Some highlights of our accomplishments in 2011 include:

• Green For Free™. In November 2011, Enova announced its Green for Free™ Program, which is designed to allow fleet executives to operate full 100% electric commercial vehicles (EVs) for similar life cycle costs as those of diesel-powered commercial vehicles. The anticipated savings fleets are expected to realize from the reduced maintenance and fuel cost of electricity of the electric vehicles are used over a period of time to cover the incremental expense for the technology. Fleet vehicles targeted with the Green for Free™ Program stand out as possessing unique characteristics that make them clear beneficiaries of electric drive technology. With more than 16.3 million vehicles in operation, the nation’s fleets possess enough capacity to drive initial ramp-up scale in the EV OEM supply chains. We believe this is the first program that is engineered to eliminate the overall incremental costs associated with buying and operating an all-electric vehicle, making the Green for Free™ Program attractive to fleets that are both large and small. Enova and FCCC anticipate traction regarding this initiative,and expect to showcase further details at multiple events in 2012, including the recent NTEA Work Truck show and the upcoming EVS 26 conference, to be held in May at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

• Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (“FCCC”), a division of Daimler Trucks North America. Enova and FCCC began deploying new and retrofit all-electric vehicles to major fleet customers in 2011. The resulting integration of our all-electric drive system into the MT-45 chassis provides FCCC an all-electric product offering: the FCCC MT-EV. The MT-EV (the FCCC model name) chassis boasts a GVWR of 14,000 to 19,500 lbs. The durable steel straight-rail chassis frame reduces flex and bowing to minimize stress while carrying heavy payloads. The quiet operation of the all-electric MT-EV also makes for an enjoyable driver experience. The MT-EV has a flat-leaf spring front and rear suspension, allowing for a smooth, solid ride that minimizes cargo shifts on uneven road surfaces. Enova and FCCC also jointly announced intentions to deploy 3,000 vehicles via the Green for Free™ Program (described above). FCCC has begun, in early 2012, an aggressive campaign to exploit future EV sales by showcasing the Enova/FCCC EV step van at numerous events on the West Coast, as well as the recent NTEA Work Truck show in Indianapolis. We currently are awaiting FCCC’s decision on battery selection for this high volume initiative.

• First Auto Works (“FAW”). Enova continues to supply FAW drive systems for their hybrid buses. Since the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Enova Systems and First Auto Works have deployed nearly 500 vehicles, all utilizing Enova’s pre-transmission hybrid drive system components. First Auto Works is one of China’s largest vehicle producers, manufacturing in excess of 1,000,000 vehicles annually. The Enova drive system is integrated and branded under the name of Jiefang CA6120URH hybrid. The Jiefang 40 ft. long hybrid city bus can carry up to 103 passengers and travel at a speeds of over 50 miles per hour. With the Enova hybrid system components, the Jiefang bus meets Euro III emission standards, consumes only 7.84 miles per gallon, and achieves a reduction of 20 percent in harmful emissions. Enova has recently shipped an already announced order of fifty (50) systems in Q4 2011 and is working on additional incremental orders in 2012.

• U.S. General Services Administration (“GSA”). GSA extended its contract with Enova as the exclusive supplier contracted for the all-electric step van. GSA procures vehicles for government agencies and the armed forces. Under this contract, Enova will coordinate the supply of MT-EV all-electric walk-in step vans to GSA under the Cargo Vans category. Enova continues to benefit from federal fleet penetration via GSA with the Smith Newton product offering in the Medium and Heavy Duty vehicle category.

• Remy Inc (“Remy”). Enova and Remy signed a long-term electric motor supply agreement in March 2012. Under the five-year agreement, Remy will provide its electric motors to Enova for its all-electric drive systems. Remy motors feature the company’s patented High Voltage Hairpin (HVH) winding technology, which is claimed to increase torque and power density for greater speed and range in electric vehicles.

• Smith Electric Vehicles N.A. Inc. (“Smith”). Enova continues to supply Smith with electric drive systems. Smith has deployed several hundred vehicles utilizing Enova’s electric drive system. Smith most recently announced its intention to deploy vehicles in the all-electric school bus sector. The 42-passenger Newton school bus travels up to 100 miles on a single charge at speeds of up to 50 mph, and is intended for the fixed routes in urban areas most school buses take each day.

• Optare plc (“Optare”). Optare awarded Enova a contract as the production drive system supplier for their all electric buses. Enova has shipped systems to Optare that are currently being integrated into buses. Optare designs, manufactures and sells single deck and double deck buses and mini coaches. It’s buses operate in the UK, Continental Europe, and North America. Further, it has been recently announced that commuters and bus passengers across England will see more eco-friendly buses on the roads, congestion reduced, and services upgraded, thanks to a new £101 million package of improvements approved by Local Transport Minister Norman Baker. Five bus manufacturers, including Optare, are expected to benefit from orders for their eco-friendly hybrid, electric and gas buses.

Enova also maintains a visible presence in the forefront of a growing industry with ongoing appearances and speaking engagements by company executives at leading industry events such as Ardour Capital’s 9th Annual Energy Technology Conference in September 2011, the recent NTEA Work Truck show in Indianapolis, the upcoming EVS 26 conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center and key US Military/Government conferences.

Throughout 2011, we finalized the development of our next generation Omni power management and drive system component. We are also finalizing design of a next generation on-board 10kW charger. Our various electric and hybrid-electric drive systems, power management and power conversion systems continue to be used in applications including Class 3-6 trucks, transit buses, and heavy industrial vehicles. We also are continuing our current research and development programs, as well as formulating new programs with the U.S. government and other private sector companies for electric and hybrid systems.

Green for Free™ Vehicle Continues US West Coast Tour

Enova and Freightliner displaying the new GFF vehicle at dealerships and conferences along the US west coast

February 7, 2012

TORRANCE, CA February 7th, 2012 – Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, is pleased to announce that a pre-production vehicle resulting from Enova’s and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp’s (FCCC) recently announced Green for Free™ initiative (www.greenforfree.com) will continue to be on display at various locations along the US west coast.

After the success and interest generated with both the public and fleet operators during the Green Vehicle Transportation Conference, the Portland International Auto Show, and a Ride and Drive event in Washington State, the GFF all electric delivery Walk in Van will be on display and available to drive at the Golden Gate Truck Center in Oakland, CA on February 7th and 8th, followed by an exhibition at Velocity Vehicle Group’s Los Angeles Freightliner Truck Center in Fontana, CA, from February 13th to Feb 17th. Attendees will learn more about the Green for Free™ initiative and ENOVA’s next-generation Omni drive system.

Jonathan Randall, Director, Sales and Marketing, Freightliner Custom Chassis, said “The commercial vehicle market has relied on government funding for alternative-fuel vehicles. The Green for Free program relies on the life cycle cost savings of an all electric vehicle versus a typical commercial vehicle to cover additional expense associated with purchasing an all electric vehicle, making the program attractive to fleets both large and small without need of government subsidies. Freightliner Custom Chassis is very pleased to be partnering with Enova to promote this program, and we are thus equally pleased with the reaction our chassis is receiving at the various shows in which we are attending.”

Mike Staran, Enova President and CEO, said “We are extremely pleased with the response this initiative is receiving. Customers are realizing that the potential for a value proposition does in fact exist and appear to be eager to participate.”

Featuring an industry-leading intelligent design, the Omni Series is designed to deliver increased power, greater efficiencies and economic advantages for manufacturers of medium and heavy-duty EV and HEV commercial vehicles. The new Green for Free™ Zero Tailpipe Emissions vehicle boasts a GVWR of 14,000 to 19,500 lbs and symbolizes the coming of age of full electric state of the art technology. It combines the ENOVA OMNI series drive train with the FCCC MT45 chassis, and a new Morgan Olson body design of greatly improved aerodynamics, a one-piece bonded windshield, an automotive-like quiet interior and recyclable composite body panels. The result is a reliable, durable and user friendly work tool with a body that is 500 lbs lighter than the traditional Walk in Van and helps extend drive cycle range. With sustainability in mind, the Green for Free™ vehicle benefits from what is expected to be the lowest possible carbon footprint. FCCC’s MT 45 chassis is built at their zero waste to landfill plant in Gaffney SC. ENOVA and FCCC are currently working together on the selection of the Battery supplier for this vehicle which is anticipated to be announced in the coming weeks. With the selection of the Battery supplier, ENOVA and FCCC will be well-positioned to set the pace in the development of large scale commercial full EV vehicles and technological innovation in this sector.

About Green for Free™:
The Green for Free™ Program intends to allow fleet executives to purchase all-electric vehicles for the cost of a diesel-powered commercial vehicle. The projected savings fleets incur from the reduced maintenance and fuel savings of the electric vehicles (EVs) are then used over a period of time to cover the incremental expense for the technology. FCCC and Enova plan to gradually deploy a total of 3,000 alternative-fuel vehicles beginning in the second half of 2012 as a result of the Green for Free™ Program. The Green for Free™ Program will utilize the FCCC All-Electric Walk-in Van (WIV) chassis powered by the Enova drive system. FCCC is already well-established in the market and can provide immediate volume, which is required to reduce high-cost components, such as batteries. Additionally, the project looks to focus on disciplined duty cycles, utilizing 80 percent of the battery daily, versus design for extended range.

(NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market is pleased to announce that one of the first pre- production vehicles resulting from Enova’s and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp’s (FCCC) recently announced Green for Free™ initiative (www.greenforfree.com) will be on display at the Portland International Auto Show January 26-29th.

The Portland International Auto Show estimates that around 150,000 attendees will have the opportunity to view the latest Green, Alternative Fuel and Electric Vehicle Concepts at the Auto Show’s Eco Center. In its second year as one of the largest Eco Centers in the nation, visitors will be able to find out more about the latest technology in vehicle charging, solar power and a large range of electric and electric hybrids and alternative fuel vehicles.

The Green for Free™ Program is designed to allow fleet executives to operate full 100% electric commercial vehicles (EVs) for similar life cycle costs as those of diesel-powered commercial vehicles. The anticipated savings fleets are expected to realize from the reduced maintenance and fuel cost of electricity of the electric vehicles are used over a period of time to cover the incremental expense for the technology. Fleet vehicles targeted with the Green for Free™ Program stand out as possessing unique characteristics that make them clear beneficiaries of electric drive technology. With more than 16.3 million vehicles in operation, the nation’s fleets possess enough capacity to drive initial ramp-up scale in the EV OEM supply chains. This is the first Program that is engineered to eliminate the overall incremental costs associated with buying and operating an all-electric vehicle, making the Program attractive to fleets that are both large and small.

FCCC and Enova plan to gradually deploy a total of 3,000 alternative-fuel vehicles beginning in the second half of 2012 as a result of the Green for Free™ Program. ENOVA and FCCC have defined the Green for Free™ Program as a new sustainable transportation model in which both companies are working in partnership with commercial fleets to offer a transportation model that provides clean, safe domestic and renewable energy.

Freightliner Custom Corporation And Enova Systems Inc. Partner To Unveil Green For Free™ Program

November 16, 2011

Torrance, CA – Nov. 16, 2011 – Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) and Enova Systems Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid-electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, today launched a program to make electric vehicles more accessible to fleets.

The Green for Free™ program allows fleet executives to purchase all-electric vehicles for the cost of a diesel-powered commercial vehicle. The savings fleets incur from the reduced maintenance and fuel savings of the electric vehicles (EVs) is then used over a period of time to cover the incremental expense for the technology.

The Green for Free™ program will utilize the FCCC All-Electric Walk-in Van (WIV) chassis powered by the Enova drive system. Fleets with set routes in pickup and delivery applications are ideal for the Green for Free™ program because they have predictable drive routes and return each night to the company depot. FCCC is already well-established in the market and can provide immediate volume, which is required to reduce high-cost components, such as batteries. Additionally, the project looks to focus on disciplined duty cycles, utilizing 80 percent of the battery daily, versus design for extended range.

“FCCC and Enova recognize that the Green For Free™ program is necessary in order to make all-electric vehicles more affordable, and therefore more accessible, to fleets,” said Bob Harbin, FCCC president. “We want to help those fleets interested in reducing their energy consumption and environmental impact by enabling them to purchase more alternative-fuel vehicles at one time because of the reduced upfront costs.”

The commercial vehicle market has relied on government funding for alternative-fuel vehicles with some success. However, this is the first program that will eliminate the overall incremental costs associated with buying and operating an all-electric vehicle, making the program attractive to fleets that are both large and small.

FCCC and Enova plan to deploy a total of 3,000 alternative-fuel vehicles within a two-year time frame beginning no later than the third quarter 2012 as a result of the Green for Free™ program.

Enova and FCCC developed an integration method for both new and retrofit applications. FCCC’s all-electric chassis is built upon the FCCC MT-45 chassis – known for its durability and GVWR of 14,000 to 19,500 lbs. – which is capable of handling heavy payloads. FCCC maintains a dominant market share in the WIV chassis market, which it expects to continue to expand.

“This business model has the potential to stimulate tremendous and rapid growth, helping achieve economies of scale through cost reduction, resulting in an excellent value proposition for the commercial fleet operator,” said Mike Staran, Enova President and CEO. “Enova has been delivering proven electric drive systems to a diverse set of domestic and international customers and has the distinction of seeing more of its green drive systems on the road than any of its competitors. The company continues to build on more than 20 years of innovation and traces its roots back to General Motors’ EV1 electric car.”

FCCC was the first chassis manufacturer to bring the hybrid-electric vehicle and all-electric vehicle to market.

Trading Update

October 12, 2011

TORRANCE, CA, October 12, 2011

Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, announces that revenue for the third and fourth quarters of 2011 is expected to be materially below that experienced in the first half of the current calendar year. Q3 results are expected to be released in mid November.

This is due to reduced demand from its two largest customers as a result of further economic uncertainty. Despite this development, positive feedback from customers continues to indicate to Enova that the market will improve in the longer term. In the meantime, Enova is exploring options to reduce the necessary levels of customers’ capital expenditure relating to new orders, thereby removing a major purchasing obstacle.

Enova’s business strategy is focused on commercial fleets that have predictable drive routes, return to a company depot nightly, and are managed by expert logistics personnel. Enova believes it is well positioned with the industry’s leading OEMs and continues working on initiatives for market penetration.

In addition to ongoing supply to existing customers, Enova is in advanced discussions with a number of parties, both in Asia and the UK, and is hopeful that these will lead to additional customer orders in the future.

Enova Systems Files

Shelf Registration Statement

August 23, 2011

August 24, 2011
TORRANCE, CA August, 2011 – Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, has filed a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). When the shelf registration statement is declared effective by the SEC, it will allow Enova to periodically sell, in one or more offerings, up to $50 million of securities, with the amount that Enova expects to be able to offer in the next twelve month period limited to one-third of the publicly traded float of Enova’s common stock.

Specific terms and share prices will be determined at the time of each offering under a separate prospectus supplement to be filed with the SEC at the time of each offering. Enova has not made a decision to make any offering at this time.

“As outlined in today’s SEC filing, Enova intends to use proceeds of any offering for general corporate purposes, including potentially a ramp up to higher production volumes of our power train systems. Once the registration statement becomes effective, it will offer us additional flexibility in accessing capital markets over a 3-year period when market conditions are favorable,” stated Michael E. Staran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Enova.

The shelf registration statement filed by Enova Systems with the SEC has not yet become effective. No securities covered by the registration statement may be sold prior to its effectiveness, nor may offers to buy those securities be accepted before that time, and no securities will be offered unless and until Enova determines to proceed with an offering. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities covered by the registration statement. Any offer of those securities may be made solely by means of the prospectus included in the registration statement and the prospectus supplement for any future offering.

Because the publicly-traded float (as calculated under SEC rules) of Enova’s shares of approximately $24 million as of July 8, 2011 is less than $75 million, unless and until Enova’s public float exceeds $75 million, Enova will be restricted to selling securities registered under the shelf registration statement equal to no more than 1/3 of the value of its public float in any consecutive twelve month period.

Low Carbon Comercial Market on Brink of Explosion

August 15, 2011

Logo

US hybrid and electric vehicle specialist Enova told NewNet it is expecting the green transport market for commercial vehicles to explode over the next few years.

The company is making retro-fit modifications for businesses such as UPS and Fed Ex, and has formed a partnership with US commercial vehicle giant Daimler Freightliner, which lays claim to 90 per cent of the fleet delivery market. CEO and president of Enova Mike Staran told NewNet that after 30 years working in and researching the market, he believes that business transport is the best way to develop the clean transport sector.
Staran said, ‘Our systems are designed for severe-duty, set drive-cycle, larger vehicles. The types of vehicles we go after are ones that have an average life of ten to twelve years – that way you can more easily get a value proposition. These vehicles have it, but passenger cars don’t have that life cycle. The other reason that we like this is the vehicles are bigger, so it’s easier to package the system and weight is not as big of an issue in a larger vehicle as it is in a passenger vehicle.’
He added, ‘The most important thing for us is that we do not think the market is completely ready for anything with random drive-cycles. We think you need to do the UPS’s and Fed Ex’s of the world that have very specific drive-cycles that come back to a depot every single night but with very limited infrastructure. That is likely to be the entry point for lots of people to come into the market.’
Staran said companies running commercial fleets know exactly how many miles their vehicles travel each day and know where they are going to be at night. This means that a battery pack or hybrid solution can be designed for the specific requirements of that fleet.
With a passenger car the distance travelled can vary each day and there is the possibility the vehicle will not be at the same location each night, making driving patterns less predictable. Business fleets avoid this issue as they come back to the same place at the end of a driver’s shift and can then be charged. This mitigates the need to rely on charging stations, which are currently intermittent at best in most countries. Staran believes that progressing the commercial market will eventually result in the practices filtering down to the rest of the transport sector.
Staran said, ‘There are many people out there today who are putting battery packs on vehicles with a range of 100 plus miles per charge, which is very impressive, and we can do
it and we do with Smith Electric Vehicles. However, batteries remain very expensive commodities. By focusing on drive-cycles that are 30 miles or less, there is much more opportunity to get a pay-back – to get a volume increase that can ultimately lead to reducing battery cost – which will then ultimately reduce costs for the longer ranges. That day is coming, but I am focused on the next year.’
Clean transport is gaining increasing traction in the US and the Department of Energy has made it a priority by launching a $175m funding pool for advanced vehicle technologies. It recently awarded a $7m grant for four fuel cell developers and awarded $11m to EV battery developer Nanosys.

Attendees from all the Air Force Major Command Headquarters Transportation / Vehicle Maintenance staff along with representatives from the Vehicle Directorate at Robins AFB and from Air Force Bases across the country were in attendance (approximately 85 attendees attended the conference).

Enova was one of only two suppliers invited to present at the morning briefing. This briefing was key to showcasing the benefits of a non-invasive, retrofit solution to the USAF’s existing Flightline van fleet. Mike Staran, CEO and John Mullins, COO highlighted the retrofit, in a post-transmission parallel hybrid configuration, to key personnel like Colonel Michael Holl, Director Support Equipment and Vehicles Division, Robins Air Force Base, GA.

Retrofits can help the USAF meet U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) Federal Fleet requirements, which, amongst other environmental initiatives, require federal agencies to reduce petroleum consumption on an annual basis (these initiatives were enacted into law by the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007, Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 1992, EPAct 2005, and two presidential executive orders).

Next Generation Vehicle for FCCC All-Electric Walk-In Van Introduced at 2010 Hybrid Truck Users Forum

September 29, 2010



DEARBORN, Mich. – Sept. 28, 2010 – Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) and Morgan Olson LLC today launched the next generation vehicle with new exterior and interior body styling for its successful all-electric walk-in van (WIV). The MT-EV WIV boasts a lightweight, aerodynamic design for improved efficiency. Conceived and developed with a contemporary fresh automotive approach, the vehicle maintains the hardworking heritage customers expect while ultimately contributing to the bottom line.

FCCC first introduced its plug-in, all-electric WIV chassis, the only one domestically engineered and the first in the industry to be completely all electric in North America, earlier this year. Following that launch and continuing in its legacy of designing alternative fuel products, FCCC partnered with Morgan Olson to develop a ground-breaking body style to provide further benefits to the delivery van owner, as well as the driver.

Introduced at the Hybrid Truck Users Forum (HTUF), the new MT-EV was engineered with the fleet owner and driver in mind. Built of lightweight, durable composites that are completely recyclable, the interior of the cab features an automotive-style interior, maximizing driver comfort and productivity.

“The partnership to develop the MT-EV WIV new body styling with Morgan Olson was a natural progression for the all-electric vehicle,” said Jonathan Randall, director of sales and marketing for FCCC. “The new design was engineered to allow for improved aerodynamics without giving up the functionality of the vehicle. The MT-EV remains a rugged, productive work tool that also maintains maximum cargo capacity.”

Reliable, Durable Work Tool

The MT-EV chassis boasts a GVWR of 14,000 to 19,500 lbs. The durable steel straight-rail chassis frame reduces flex and bowing to minimize stress while carrying heavy payloads. The quiet operation of the all-electric MT-EV also makes for an enjoyable driver experience. The MT-EV has a flat-leaf spring front and rear suspension, allowing for a smooth, solid ride that minimizes cargo shifts on uneven road surfaces.

“By partnering with Morgan Olson, we have effectively developed the MT-EV WIV to meet performance, as well as environmental needs of our delivery vehicle customers,” Randall said.

“The vehicle development process with Freightliner Custom Chassis has been fantastic,” said Steve Miller, vice president of sales and marketing for Morgan Olson. “Both companies started with a clean sheet of paper and very strong ideas about the statement the new WIV should make. In addition to building a highly efficient delivery van with a distinctive new look, we have designed a vehicle that makes a powerful environmental statement. It allows our customers to show their commitment to the environment while maximizing driver productivity.”

The MT-EV WIV has a one-piece bonded windshield allowing for outstanding visibility. Taking into account wind flow over the hood and cab, the headlamps and mirrors of the body were designed to be aerodynamic, further improving upon the vehicle’s efficiency.

The instrumentation panel within the cab incorporates automotive styling and adds additional features that constantly monitor the EV operating system to provide the driver information, such as the battery state of charge data. Also, the vehicle performance gauge is included to assist the driver in the operation of the vehicle.

The full-feature gauge and informational display includes a larger messaging center display area, prognostic information and is completely sealed, fully protecting it from dust and water projected from backsplash. The larger messaging center display area enables easier reading of fault codes and maintenance notifications. Rather than relying on predetermined maintenance schedules, the incorporation of prognostic information provides the driver critical up-to-the-minute maintenance information, such as the life of the engine, transmission, oil and filters. This enables the driver to respond accordingly while potentially increasing efficiency.

The all-electric chassis is specifically designed for the urban delivery vehicle market in which it can provide the greatest operating and environmental benefit. Additionally, the MT EV chassis provides additional safety to drivers, such as a curb-side exit, walk-through cargo area and direct access to the cargo area from the driver’s station.

The all-electric chassis also was initiated before stimulus money and federal grants were available for alternative-fuel transportation projects.

Created for Zero Tailpipe Emissions

The MT-EV all-electric chassis utilizes Enova Systems’ 120kW all-electric drive system technology. Enova Systems, Inc (NYSE: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS) is a leading developer and producer of electric and hybrid-electric drive system technologies for commercial vehicle OEMs. Powered by Tesla Motors’ lithium-ion batteries, the chassis is 100 percent electric, including its HVAC system, making it the only fully featured WIV chassis in the industry to be completely electrically powered. FCCC is the first company within the industry to utilize Tesla batteries for commercial applications.

“We are pleased with the continued progress of our work with FCCC,” said Enova CEO and President Mike Staran. “Our partnership further demonstrates that the appetite for these products is growing. Enova has continued to aggressively pursue new technologies, partnerships and opportunities to expand the clean vehicle market. Our strategies are generating reliable sales growth, strong market position and continued demand for our technology.”

The all-electric drive system features battery packs that provide up to a 100-mile driving range on a single charge, making it ideal for pickup and delivery applications. The battery pack will charge from fully depleted to fully charged in six to eight hours. In addition, the vehicle charging system is incorporated into the overall operating system so no exterior devices are required to charge the truck.

The batteries featured on the electric system also capture and store energy during the regenerative braking phase of the vehicle’s operation. The regenerative braking system reduces friction during braking, resulting in less brake wear and extended brake life. The regenerative braking system saves energy by recycling and storing it, which can then be reused to propel the vehicle instead of losing it to heat, as is the case with traditional brakes.

Legacy of Engineering Alternative-Fuel Technologies

FCCC and its parent company, Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA), maintain a legacy of providing innovative technologies that benefit customers and the environment. FCCC’s commitment to green technologies is in line with Daimler AG’s global initiative called, “Shaping Future Transportation.” Launched in Stuttgart, Germany, by Daimler in 2007, the initiative is focused on reducing category emissions pollutants, carbon dioxide and fuel consumption.

In August 2008, Daimler announced the opening of the Global Hybrid Center at Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation in Kawasaki, Japan. The center is the worldwide hub for Daimler’s hybrid development.

Along with the all-electric chassis, FCCC has extensive experience manufacturing compressed natural gas (CNG) WIV chassis, currently manufactures hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) chassis, and will offer full production of the hydraulic hybrid vehicle (HHV) chassis in Q1 2011 for the walk-in van market segment. These alternative-power vehicles have proven to offer significant fuel savings benefits.

FCCC also designs and manufactures alternative-fuel chassis for the commercial bus and motorhome market segments. In 2008, FCCC introduced ecoFRED™, the motorhome industry’s first hybrid-electric chassis, and the FCCC MB-HEV hybrid-electric commercial bus chassis in response to a growing customer demand for alternative-fuel power that provides the same excellent performance and durability as FCCC’s premium diesel-powered chassis. At the 2009 NTEA Work Truck Show, FCCC introduced its HHV chassis to the commercial vehicle industry.

The HTUF conference takes place Sept. 28-30, in Dearborn, Mich. HTUF is the nation’s leading program driving production and use of medium and heavy-duty hybrid and high-efficiency trucks and buses. It was founded by CALSTART and the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center’s National Automotive Center (NAC). www.htuf.org

August 11, 2010

TORRANCE, CA August 11, 2010 – Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV
and ENVS), a production company in an emerging industry and a leading developer of
proprietary electric, hybrid and fuel cell digital power management systems, today announced
financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2010 and noted positive highlights for the
year.

Highlights of the June 30, 2010 Quarter:

  • Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $2,054,000, up 257% from the fiscal
    2009 second quarter of $576,000 due primarily from sales to Navistar, Smith Electric
    Vehicles (“Smith”) and First Auto Works. Revenue also increased for the six months
    ended June 30, 2010 by $1,719,000 or 136% to $2,983,000 for the comparable period in
    2009 due to sales from the aforementioned customers and Freightliner Custom Chassis
    Corporation (“Freightliner”).
  • Gross margin was 14% in the second quarter of fiscal 2010, up from a negative 6% in the
    comparable second quarter of 2009. Gross margin also improved for the six months
    ended June 30, 2010 to 13%, up from 6% for the comparable period in 2009.

Positive Charge

Torrance maker of hybrid and electric drivetrains hopes new contracts will end string of losses.

June 14, 2010

Los Angeles Business Journal
Monday, June 14, 2010
By Howard Fine

Has Enova Systems finally had a breakthrough?

The Torrance-based maker of hybrid and electric drivetrains for trucks and buses has signed two major contracts in recent months that the company expects will provide a major boost to revenues.

One contract calls for Enova to supply electric trucks to the federal government; the other is an agreement to supply electric drivetrains to Freightliner in Gaffey, S.C., the nation’s largest truck chassis maker, a division of Daimler Trucks North America LLC.

But with the company posting losses for the last several years, will these contracts be enough to pull the company out of the red?

And can a company with a mere $5.6 million in revenue last year continue to snag contracts as it goes up against multibillion-dollar companies eager to get a piece of the electric vehicle market?

Enova Chief Executive Mike Staran thinks the answer is yes on both counts. He said that when Enova beat out billionaire players like Eaton Corp. of Cleveland and German titan Siemens AG for the federal General Services Administration contract in February, the industry was forced to take notice of the small company.

“These developments have begun to separate us from the pack and make us a legitimate company in people’s eyes,” Staran said in an interview in late May before taking off on a road show to promote Enova’s products to potential customers.

But one of the few outside analysts who cover the company isn’t as optimistic.

Marco Rodriguez, at Stonegate Securities Inc. in Dallas, said he has seen similar announcements before, but they haven’t led to major revenue gains for the company.

“It just seems that announcements like these have been made before over the years and the execution has come up short,” Rodriguez said.

He said part of the problem is that Enova’s customers – manufacturers of electric and hybrid-electric trucks and buses – don’t sell as many vehicles to truck and bus fleet operators as initially forecast. So the deals Enova has announced haven’t led to as many sales of drivetrains as projected.

“This may be why Enova’s revenue often comes in lower than expectations, as they did this past quarter,” he noted.

The company’s revenue in the first quarter were $929,000, up 35 percent from first quarter 2009, but only about half of what Rodriguez said investors had been expecting.

Half expectations

The company posted a net loss of $1.7 million for the quarter, which Rodriguez said was in line with market expectations.

But Enova’s Staran said the two recent announcements can generate more significant revenue and eventually break the trend of losses. The company’s guidance for 2010 now calls for about $15 million in revenues, triple last year’s level.

Staran said the market for electric and hybrid-electric trucks and buses has been growing as government regulators have focused more on limiting emissions from trucks and buses. In California, for example, strict diesel emissions on trucks will start to kick in by 2013.

Enova delivered its first electric van to the General Services Administration in May.

But because this contract comes up for renewal annually, Enova’s competitors will be closely watching the company’s ability to deliver quality drivetrains to the government, one industry observer said.

“There are a lot of other very well-capitalized companies out there,” said John Boesel, chief executive of Calstart, a Pasadena non-profit that promotes the growth of electric vehicles and other clean technologies for transportation. “Enova now has to prove it is quicker and more nimble than those companies.”

Enova has already proved it’s a survivor. The company was founded in 1976 as U.S. Electricar Inc. and was one of the first companies in the electric vehicle market. For much of its existence, the company focused on research and development and remained a small niche player, supplying small quantities of electric drive systems to vehicle manufacturers. (Many of those have gone out of business.)

In 2000, the company changed its name to Enova and moved into the burgeoning hybrid-electric vehicle market. It became one of a few manufacturers to make both electric and gas-electric drivetrains.

In the past three years, the company has signed contracts with Navistar International Corp., one of the world’s largest truck and bus manufacturers in Warrensville, Ill.; First Auto Works, one of China’s largest vehicle manufacturers; and Smith Electric Vehicles, a long-established British company that recently entered the U.S. market.

Yet even with all these contracts in hand, volumes remain small. Electric and hybrid-electric trucks and buses have until very recently been a small market, populated mostly by “early adopters.”

There’s been another problem, too, especially with all-electric drivetrains: limited battery life.

A typical fleet bus or truck lasts 10 to 12 years. But the batteries that power the electric drivetrain only have warranties that last three years, and they cost thousands of dollars to replace. So truck companies and fleet operators are reluctant to switch to electric drivetrains.

‘Deal-killer’

“I can’t tell you how many times we’ve talked with potential end-use customers and they ask, ‘You mean, if we buy an electric truck, we will have to replace the batteries three or four times?’” Staran said. “It’s often a deal-killer.”

That means Enova’s end-users tend to be those truck and bus companies, and fleet operators that choose to be early adopters of electric vehicle technology and as such are willing to take the risk of frequent battery replacement.

“We won’t be able to grow into a $100 million company until there are batteries available with warranties of at least seven years,” Staran said.

Instead, Enova has been preparing to enter the engine retrofit market, specifically to help cash-strapped truck and fleet owners meet looming environmental deadlines.

“This is a very promising area because it’s usually cheaper to replace a drive system than it is to replace an entire vehicle,” Calstart’s Bousel said.

Staran said the company expects its first retrofit contracts during the second half of this year.

But analyst Rodriguez said that for Enova to really capitalize on this market, it will have to scale up production.

“The company would need more capital to produce on a massive enough scale to really take advantage of the retrofit market,” he said.

Enova Announces Hybrid School Bus Order; Initial Large Scale Deployment of Federal Stimulus Dollars for School Busses

May 26, 2010

Torrance, CA – May 26, 2010 – Enova Systems, Inc (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a leading innovator of propriety hybrid and electric drive systems, confirmed today that they, along with Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV) and its subsidiary IC Bus, will deploy 16 hybrid school buses used for a number of school districts. This deployment represents the initial large scale utilization of US Department of Energy grants for clean school buses. Both Navistar, who claims 61% of the school bus market in North America, and Enova, believe that this initial deployment is a critical next step in the evolution of the hybrid school bus program towards long term production volume.

Enova COO John Mullins said, “The deployment of these initial systems is an affirmation of Navistar’s commitment to the hybrid school bus market. Enova supports this commitment by engineering a post-transmission hybrid drive system that integrates easily and non-invasively”

Enova anticipates an increase in demand for hybrid school buses powered by Enova’s drive system technologies. Several states and school districts have expressed interest in expanding their hybrid school bus fleets. This interest should continue to grow as more tax credits and incentives become available to ease the transition to hybrid school buses.

“This is not the first time Enova has partnered with Navistar to break new ground in clean vehicle technology,” said Enova CEO and President Mike Staran. “In 2005, we collaborated on the industry’s first production plug-in hybrid vehicle, and we’ve refined the technology since. This order for 16 Enova-powered hybrid school buses solidifies both our companies’ positions as industry leaders.”

Over the past years, Navistar’s plug-in hybrid school buses powered by Enova’s ultra-efficient drive system, have demonstrated a significant improvement in fuel economy and reduction in emissions. The partners expect these efficiencies to drive further demand for Navistar’s hybrid school buses.

Enova Reports Results for First Quarter 2010; Revenue Increase of 35% Compared to First Quarter 2009; Cites Encouraging Developments in 2010

May 17, 2010

TORRANCE, CA May 17, 2010 – Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA and AIM: ENV and ENVS), a production company in an emerging industry and a leading developer of proprietary electric, hybrid and fuel cell digital power management systems has filed results of its first quarter of fiscal year 2010 on Form 10-Q.

Enova President and CEO Mike Staran commented, “We are encouraged by continued customer traction and support through government funding opportunities, both in the form of funded development and government subsidies. These programs improve the value proposition for early adopters and help drive demand in this nascent market.” Staran continued, “We are also encouraged by the markets positive reception to Enova’s re-designed and expanded product offering which will further broaden our sales opportunities in 2010.”

Highlights of the March 31, 2010 10-Q:

  • Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 was $929,000, up 35% from the fiscal 2009 first quarter of $688,000 due to deliveries of orders to Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (“Freightliner”), Smith Electric Vehicles (“Smith”), and Hawaii Center for Advanced Transportation Technologies.
  • Gross margin was 9% in the first quarter of fiscal 2010, down from 16% in the comparable first quarter of 2009. We recorded a higher non-cash inventory charge in Q1 2010 versus the comparable period that resulted in a majority of the decrease in gross margin.
  • Net loss for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010 was $1,719,000 or a basic and diluted loss of $0.05 per share compared to a net loss of $1,656,000 or a basic and diluted loss of $0.08 per share for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009.
  • Enova received its first order for its Zero Emissions (“Ze”) step van from a military installation in April 2010. The order reflects increased awareness by federal agencies for the Department of Energy’s (“DOE”) Federal Management Program recent publication titled “Guidance for Federal Agencies on Executive Order 13514 Section 12 – Federal Fleet Management.” Federal agencies are required to reduce their petroleum consumption by 2% annually for a total 30% reduction by 2020. The Ze step van can completely displace the petroleum use of its gasoline or diesel counterpart.
  • Smith Electric Vehicles,was selected to receive an additional $22 million in grant funding from the Department of Energy (“DOE”), bringing the total DOE grant funding available to Smith to $32 million toward the production of all –electric, zero emissions commercial trucks powered by Enova’s drive system.

Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation's All-Electric Walk-In Van Chassis Debuts at NTEA Work Truck Show

March 10, 2010

GAFFNEY, S.C. – March 10, 2010 – Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) continues its legacy of engineering alternative-power products for the commercial vehicle industry with the introduction of its highly anticipated plug-in all-electric walk-in van (WIV) chassis. The new chassis model is the only one domestically engineered and the first in the industry to be completely all-electric (includes HVAC system) in North America.

The all-electric chassis, developed in partnership with Enova Systems (NYSE:ENA and AIM:ENV and ENVS), a leading developer and producer of electric and hybrid-electric drive system technologies for commercial vehicle OEMs, is built on the popular FCCC MT-45 WIV chassis platform.

FCCC presented the preproduction all-electric WIV chassis model at the 2010 National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Work Truck Show (Booth #3035).

“In partnership with Enova we have developed an all-electric chassis to meet the environmental, economic and performance needs of our commercial vehicle customers,” said Bob Harbin, FCCC president. “Our vision is clearly focused on transitioning the all-electric chassis into the mainstream of our walk-in van production programs. This new program demonstrates that FCCC remains fully committed to engineering chassis options that lower operating costs and decrease carbon footprints for our customers”.

“Unlike competitive models, our all-electric chassis is custom-built from the ground up for the walk-in van market, integrating the proven ergonomic advantages of WIV bodies,” Harbin added. “Competitor chassis are a cab chassis configuration and end up as box trucks typically built for the trucking industry. Competitor products do not offer the ergonomic benefits and safety features of a WIV such as curb-side exit, walk-through cargo area, direct access to cargo area from driver’s station, etc.”

Addressing the discussion in the industry surrounding recent federal funding for all-electric technology, Jonathan Randall, sales and marketing director at FCCC added, “FCCC initiated our all-electric project well before stimulus money and federal grants were available for alternative-power transportation projects. FCCC viewed the all-electric project as the logical next step in its alternative-power product offerings, as well as a strategic opportunity to continue its leadership role in the WIV industry.”

Zero Emissions Without Sacrificing Performance

The new all-electric chassis enables fleet operators to eliminate harmful emissions and cut operating and maintenance costs while delivering the performance and driver comfort features FCCC customers have come to expect. On select delivery and service routes, studies show that customers will save up to $15,000 per vehicle annually compared with traditionally powered walk-in vans. The quiet operation of the all-electric chassis also makes for an enjoyable driver experience. This new chassis has a flat-leaf spring front and rear suspension, allowing for a smooth, solid ride that minimizes cargo shifts on uneven road surfaces.

The development program with Enova involved the engineering and integration of Enova’s 120kW all-electric drive system technology into the new MT-45 chassis. Ideal for the pickup and delivery market, the MT-45 chassis boasts a GVWR of 14,000 to 19,500 lbs. The durable steel straight-rail chassis frame reduces flex and bowing to minimize chassis stress while carrying heavy payloads. “Collaborating with Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation has enabled us to achieve our shared goal of introducing all-electric drive technology into the walk-in van market,” said Mike Staran, president and CEO of Enova Systems. “The FCCC-Enova partnership is accelerating the broad deployment of EV technology in this critical vehicle segment while improving the environment and helping to reduce U.S. dependence on imported energy.”

Powered by Tesla Motors lithium ion batteries, the chassis is 100 percent electric, including its HVAC system, making it the only fully featured WIV chassis in the industry to be completely electrically powered. FCCC is the first company within the industry to utilize Tesla batteries for commercial applications.

The all-electric drive system features battery packs that provides an up to 100-mile driving range on a single charge, making it ideal for pickup and delivery applications. The battery pack will charge from fully depleted to fully charged in six to eight hours.

The batteries featured on the electric system also capture and store energy during the regenerative braking phase of the vehicle’s operation. The regenerative braking system reduces friction during braking, resulting in less brake wear and extended brake life. The regenerative braking system saves energy by recycling and storing it, which can then be reused to propel the vehicle instead of losing it to heat, as is the case with traditional brakes.

Other features include a parking pawl within the gear box and a push-button shifter for improved efficiency.

The all-electric MT-45 chassis is expected to go into full production during the first quarter of 2011 and will undergo testing with major U.S. pickup and delivery fleets.

Green Technology Legacy

FCCC and its parent company, Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA), maintain a legacy of providing innovative technologies that benefit customers and the environment. FCCC’s commitment to green technologies is in line with Daimler AG’s global initiative called, “Shaping Future Transportation.” Launched in Stuttgart, Germany, by Daimler in 2007, the initiative is focused on reducing category emissions pollutants, carbon dioxide and fuel consumption.

In August 2008, Daimler announced the opening of the Global Hybrid Center at Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation in Kawasaki, Japan. The center is the worldwide hub for Daimler’s hybrid development.

FCCC is proud to continue to play an important role in Daimler’s global initiative,” said Randall. “We are committed to developing new chassis that offer a superior level of comfort, reliability, performance and durability that our customers need from their vehicles, while also manufacturing products that are environmentally responsible.”

Along with the all-electric chassis, FCCC has extensive experience manufacturing compressed natural gas (CNG) WIV chassis, currently manufactures hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) chassis and will offer full production of the hydraulic hybrid vehicle (HHV) chassis in Q4 2010 for the walk-in van market segment. These alternative-power vehicles have proven to offer significant fuel savings benefits.

FCCC also designs and manufactures alternative-fuel chassis for the commercial bus and motorhome market segments. In 2008, FCCC introduced ecoFRED™, the motorhome industry’s first hybrid-electric chassis, and the FCCC MB-HEV hybrid-electric commercial bus chassis in response to a growing customer demand for alternative-fuel power that provides the same excellent performance and durability as FCCC’s premium diesel-powered chassis. At the 2009 NTEA Work Truck Show, FCCC introduced its HHV chassis to the commercial vehicle industry.

On the heels of the CleanEquity Monaco 2010 Conference, Enova will also participate in the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) ‘Work Truck Show’ and Green Truck Summit Conference – a major industry event for commercial vehicle OEMs, national fleet operators, and vehicle equipment manufacturers that comprise Enova’s core customer base.

Hosted at America’s Center in St. Louis, MO on March 9 – 12, 2010, this trade event will prominently feature Enova’s all-electric drive train technology for commercial vehicles at a number of venues. Throughout the event, Enova will actively support Freightliner Customer Chassis Corporation (a division of Daimler Trucks North America), who is partnering with Enova to develop and integrate all-electric walk-in van chassis targeted at the parcel delivery and urban route delivery fleet market.

“Our partner FCCC is taking a leading role in reducing harmful emissions and fleet operating costs now and in the years ahead,” explained Staran. “Enova is pleased to enter this partnership and support FCCC”.

Also participating in the Conference is key Enova customer Smith Electric Vehicles US, which will feature Enova’s 120 kW all-electric drive train and on-board charging technology in their Smith Newton commercial delivery trucks.

Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to experience the outstanding performance, zero emissions and quiet ride offered by the Enova Ze, the company’s all-electric walk-in van designed and developed by Enova’s Vehicle Integration Team. As part of the NTEA alternative fuel ride-and-drive program, attendees will be able to drive the Ze on a 2-mile route outside the America’s Center.

Said Staran, “Having the Enova Ze at the NTEA Ride-and-Drive allows us to demonstrate the many advantages of this clean vehicle technology”.
