Enova Systems, Inc. has received an incremental order to deliver 100 electric drive systems to Smith Electric Vehicles (SEV), manufacturer of the all-electric Smith Newton truck.
The order for 100 Enova 120kW drive systems will be installed into Smith Newton trucks in Kansas City, MO. This recent order follows three previous orders from SEV totaling 220 units for 2010. This order is a part of the expected 500+ units through 2011 funded via the $32M DOE award granted to SEV earlier this year.
The $32-million grant is being used to offset the cost of future vehicle development and to incentivize customers to participate in a vehicle demonstration program.
