California Facility to Expand Sales and Large-Scale Deployment of Cenntro EVs on the West Coast
Cenntro Electric Group Limited (NASDAQ: CENN), a leading EV and alternative fuel technology company with advanced, market-validated electric commercial vehicles, today announced the addition of an assembly plant in Ontario, California. The facility has been under preparation and is scheduled to be operational this quarter, allowing the company to expand sales and large-scale deployment on the West Coast.
The Ontario facility is Cenntro’s third assembly facility in the U.S., joining assembly plants in Jacksonville, Florida, and Howell, New Jersey. Since opening in the first quarter of 2023, both facilities have moved from pilot production to full-scale assembly and deliveries to Cenntro customers in the U.S. Both the Jacksonville and Howell sites assemble and support Cenntro’s North American commercial EV portfolio including the Class 4 LS400, the Metro, and the Teemak. Vehicles produced at the Jacksonville facility support sales and distribution in the Southeastern region while the Howell facility supports the Northeastern region of the United States.
“The addition of our California facility follows certification of both the LS400 and the Metro by the California Air Resources Board and will allow the company to scale sales on the West Coast, one of the largest markets in the U.S. and a region that is very forward-acting with respect to EV and renewable technologies,” said Peter Wang, Cenntro Chairman and CEO. “With our assembly facilities in Florida and New Jersey fully operational, we are delivering our vehicles to customers throughout the United States.”
