Enova Systems Delivers Electric Drive Systems To Optare Plc

Enova Systems, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ENA) (AIM: ENV) (AIM: ENVS), a leading developer of proprietary hybrid electric and all-electric drive systems and drive system components for the emerging green commercial vehicle market, is pleased to announce that it has delivered 4 incremental 120kW drive systems to Optare Plc for integration into their Solo Electric Bus. Optare has chosen Enova as the production drive system supplier for their all electric buses. Optare designs, manufactures and sells single deck and double deck buses and mini coaches. Its buses operate in the UK, Continental Europe, and North America.

Mike Staran, Enova President and CEO said, “Despite the industry downturn, Enova continues to ship product to core and incremental customers. We will continue this path as well as mature other initiatives that are intended to improve distribution channels.”

Additionally, and announced on March 23, 2012, commuters and bus passengers across England will see more eco-friendly buses on the roads, congestion reduced and services upgraded, thanks to a new £101 million package of improvements approved by Local Transport Minister Norman Baker. Five bus manufacturers will benefit from orders for their eco-friendly hybrid, electric and gas buses. They comprise: Volvo, Wrightbus, Optare, MAN and Alexander Dennis Limited, all of which are based in, or partly in, the UK.

Based on the award-winning Solo low-floor bus, of which over 4,000 are in service worldwide, the Solo EV produces zero tailpipe emissions. The model is based on a standard 27-seat 8.8 meter Solo, but the technology can be used on other models in the Optare range with higher passenger capacities. The Solo EV has been designed to perform exactly like a standard diesel powered bus, except that it is smoother, quieter and cleaner. It is completely traffic compatible, with good acceleration and hill climbing capabilities and a top speed of up to 90 km/hour. On a full charge it has a range of around 110-130 kilometers depending on load factors and topography.
