Enova Systems confirmed that it has received and begun delivering a production order for 300 electric drive systems from Smith Electric Vehicles, a division of The Tanfield Group Plc (TAN).
Enova has worked in partnership with Tanfield for almost a year to develop high performance electric drive train components for Smith Electric Vehicles’ zero emission electric vans and trucks. Under the production agreement, Enova will supply 90kW and 120kW electric drive units to Tanfield for application in the Edison and Newton electric vehicles. (Earlier post.)
The order is scheduled for delivery throughout the remainder of 2007, as Smith Electric Vehicles continues to secure orders with major fleet owners in the UK and Europe and continue to penetrate the growing international market for commercial electric vehicles.
