Distributors will soon have plenty of EV options when looking to add to their Class 1 delivery fleets.

Electric Last Mile Solutions Inc. (ELMS), Troy, MI, a new auto manufacturer specializing in commercial electric vehicles (EVs), shipped its first Urban Delivery units,  marking what it says is the launch of the first commercial Class 1 EV in the U.S. market. The Urban Delivery EVs came out of ELMS’ production facility in Mishawaka, IN, and were shipped to Randy Marion Automotive Group, one of the country’s largest commercial dealerships, as part of a binding purchase order for 1,000 units.

“This launch and delivery marks a key milestone for Electric Last Mile Solutions, our partners, and our shareholders. We are now delivering our transformative and sustainable EV solutions to commercial customers and solidifying our first-mover status in the segment,” said

James Taylor, ELMS co-founder and CEO, is an experienced auto industry executive whose resume includes several high-profile leadership positions at General Motors. He was previously  president of Cadillac and CEO of Hummer before founding ELMS. Taylor says ELMS is now focused on ramping to mass production, and expects to begin production of its second vehicle, the larger Class 3 Urban Utility EV, in the second half of 2022.
