“Businesses and organizations with fleets in California can get a preliminary voucher amount of $95,000 per truck, increasable up to $120,000 and stackable with other incentive programs to lower initial purchase price,” states today’s release.

An Easy Application Process

“California HVIP vouchers dramatically simplify and speed up the process of obtaining funds, thereby accelerating vehicle deployment,” chief commercial officer Mike Saxton says in the announcement.

“Orange EV’s T-series and the corresponding voucher amount are all pre-approved, eliminating uncertainty and enabling fleets to execute deployment plans without having to go out-of-pocket for the additional capital,” he said.

Make It Up on Fuel

“The balance can be financed, further reducing initial cash outlay and helping fleets pay the balance from savings in large expense items like diesel fuel,” the company says.

Orange EV spread the word last week that it is now offering new-chassis vehicles, as well as upfits of existing terminal trucks to full battery power.
