Electric Vehicles International (EVI) Electric Vehicle Manufacturing
Electric Vehicles International (EVI) has an agreement to design, develop, and deploy a clean, state-of-the-art range-extended EV power train technology for medium-duty trucks. The modernization of EVI’s facility is already benefiting the manufacturing of EVI’s prototype and production electric vehicles.
The Energy Commission is awarding $3,881,244 from the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program funds. This agreement supplements the electric vehicle manufacturing award.
The project partners are providing $6,825,602 in match funding.
An automated manufacturing process should cut vehicle costs by 30 percent. The manufacturing process will immediately create 50 permanent jobs in economically depressed Stockton, while a commercial scale plant is expected to create an additional 375 jobs. This project will produce medium and heavy-duty electric vehicles that should cut emissions by up to 68 percent per vehicle.
