Lightning eMotors’ CEO and Leadership Team Ring Opening Bell at New York Stock Exchange

New York, May 24, 2021 – Lightning eMotors’ CEO Tim Reeser and members of the company’s executive team today rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to celebrate the zero-emission commercial vehicle manufacturer’s listing on the exchange earlier this month.

Lightning eMotors, based in Loveland, Colorado, is a leading provider of commercial zero-emission vehicles for fleets. On May 7, the company began trading its common stock on NYSE under the new symbol “ZEV.”

“Trading on the exchange and ringing the bell on Wall Street are big milestones for our company,” said Tim Reeser, CEO of Lightning eMotors. “However, we remain focused on the task at hand. In the past six months, we’ve added 22 new fleet customers, giving us an overall total of 46 fleet customers. We have vehicles on the road in 17 different market segments, including corporate and educational campus transit, micro and mass transit, middle-mile and last-mile delivery, airport shuttles, food trucks, postal delivery, and electrical services. Many of our customers also are placing repeat orders after successful initial deployments.

“We are taking a few minutes today to celebrate, but then it is back to engineering, designing, and delivering great zero-emission vehicles for our growing base of customers,” Reeser said.
