Projects

Electric Vehicles International (EVI) Electric Vehicle Manufacturing

<< Return to Projects

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.

Grant Amount

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.

Match Amount

The project partners are providing $6,825,602 in match funding.

Project Benefits

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.

Grant Agreement Number: ARV-10-011
