Minneapolis, May 12, 2021 – Zeus Electric Chassis, Inc., (“Zeus” or the “Company”), a Delaware corporation, is offering up to $50,000,000 (subject to increase) of Simple Agreements for Future Equity (“Series 2 SAFEs”) to an unlimited number of accredited investors. They have engaged Silicon Prairie Capital Partners, LLC (“SPCP”), a registered broker-dealer, to act as a nonexclusive placement agent to assist the Company in selling the Series 2 SAFEs in this offering.
Zeus has developed an uncompromising, fully configurable, fully electric work truck solution to address the untapped class 3-8 specialty work truck market. The Zeus EV work truck platform is designed to meet the needs of many industries.
EV mandates are driving the efforts to decarbonize work truck fleets in the United States. Fifteen states in the U.S. Climate Alliance have signed agreements to require 30% of their fleets to be electric by 2030, with more aggressive goals in California and New York further accelerating EV adoption in their states. Based on NTEA data, the 15 states with EV mandates represent over 40% of work truck sales in the U.S. – estimated at 140,000 trucks in 2021.
A potential market of $8 billion by 2030 will be created in Zeus targeted industries by the need to fulfill the EV fleet adoption mandates in these fifteen states alone.
Zeus plans to establish a manufacturing/assembly plant in SE Oklahoma at a facility owned by Choctaw Defense Manufacturing. The Company will also continue to build their backlog, working with municipal fleets, utilities, and OEM manufacturers to develop the configurations they need. Zeus’ Product Design center is in Minnesota, from which our first work truck builds – secured by the Sacramento Metropolitan Utility District – will be delivered.
“Zeus is uniquely positioned to meet the inherent challenges and opportunities of EV fleet adoption. Our EV work truck chassis offers an innovative, thoughtful solution for the industry and the environment.”Robert Grinstead – Chief Technical Officer, Zeus Electric Chassis, Inc.
