OSCEOLA, AR / ACCESSWIRE / September 1, 2022 / Envirotech Vehicles, Inc. (NASDAQ:EVTV), a provider of new zero-emission, purpose-built electric vehicles (the "Company"), announced today that it has received a purchase order from San Diego-based Coastal Marine Services, Inc. (CMSI) for three zero-emission high-roof logistics vans.
Phillip Oldridge, Chief Executive Officer of Envirotech Vehicles, commented, "We are excited to partner with CMSI, and to show how our zero-emission vans can meet the need for cleaner fleet vehicles in demanding shipyard and port operations. With the California Air Resources Board moving toward ending sales of new fossil-fuel cars, trucks and SUVs in California by 2035, this partnership points the way to a more sustainable future where the needs of the ports and maritime transportation sector are met without harming the environment."
Established in 1984, Coastal Marine Services, Inc. (CMSI) is a supplier and installer of insulation, lagging (pipe insulation) and deck coverings for the ship-building industry. The company is headquartered in San Diego, Calif. CMSI also has major operations in Washington State's Puget Sound, Norfolk, Va. and Mayport, Fla.
"Here in San Diego, shipyard contractors are very aware and work closely with our residential neighbors regarding greenhouse gas emissions," said CSMI Vice President Edward Bagdasar. "With the purchase of these next-generation, zero-emission commercial vans from Envirotech Vehicles, we are making positive improvements to become greener and more environmentally friendly. We hope other contractors in the area will follow our lead to a cleaner future."
The high-roof logistics vans were purchased by CMSI through California's Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), which provides point-of-sale vouchers that make commercial, zero-emissions vehicles more affordable to companies and industry. The vans each have an interior cargo volume of 399 cubic feet, a top speed of 62 mph and produce 161 horsepower and 575 lb/ft of torque. They have a maximum range of approximately 170 miles when fully charged. See full specs here.
