Orange EV Plans Kansas City, Kansas, Headquarters-Manufacturing Center

Orange EV, the electric vehicle industry-leading manufacturer with the most heavy-duty, zero-emission trucks in operation in the United States, plans to establish its new corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations in the Turner Logistics Center in Kansas City, Kansas.

The 400,000-square-foot facility will provide the company with the production and office space necessary to accommodate its rapid growth and is being designed to produce as many as 1,800 terminal trucks per year in single-shift operations. Operations are scheduled for mid-2023.

"Our new site enables us to continue to extend our market leadership in EV terminal trucks and begin development of new products and services for the electric truck industry," said Wayne Mathisen, co-founder and CEO of Orange EV. "Our growth and success are a tribute to the efforts and expertise of our employees. Orange EV appreciates the collaboration of the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas, the Kansas Department of Commerce and the Kansas City Board of Public Utilities for their engagement in supporting Orange EV's growth in Kansas."

"Locating another EV manufacturer to Kansas delivers a charge to this developing sector," Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce David Toland noted. "Orange EV is the kind of industry leader our state will continue recruiting as Kansas becomes the epicenter of sustainable transportation."

Orange EV, headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, is the leading OEM providing industrial fleets with heavy-duty, electric vehicle solutions proven to save money while being safer, more reliable and preferred by drivers and management. Building both new and re-powered terminal trucks, the company was the nation's first manufacturer offering 100 percent electric Class 8 vehicles to be commercially deployed and scaled.
