EV Revolution Goes On Despite COVID-19

Published

on

Tesla Electric Vehicles

On August 26, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced it is adding more than 1,800 electric vehicles from Daimler AG-owned (OTC: DDAIF) Mercedes-Benz Vans to its delivery fleet in Europe this year. With joint forces, these two giants are set to tame carbon emissions that result from deliveries. Amazon also ordered 100,000 of specially designed electric trucks from Rivian which is due to launch its SUVs next year. But, an electric fleet is only one part of the EV story.

Mercedes joins the Climate Pledge

Mercedes-Benz also announced that it has committed to a zero carbon footprint by 2040. This is whole a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement goal of 2050.

By signing The Climate Pledge, Mercedes is accelerating its commitment to “Ambition2039” whose overall goal to have a CO2-neutral fleet of new cars in less two decades. The manufacturer is identifying ways to remove carbon from its entire value chain: from development, throughout its production and all the way to the supply chain. It is also thinking of the best way to use renewable energies for its operations. Mercedes-Benz is making an important contribution to slowing climate change. Moreover, by the end of this year, its portfolio will be enhanced by five fully electric models and more than 20 plug-in hybrids.

Amazon is also into renewables

As part of The Climate Pledge, Amazon is also committed to power its growing electric fleet with clean energy. Amazon is investing in renewable energy sources and has committed to run on 100% renewable energy by 2025. Globally, Amazon has 91 renewable energy projects that are made of 31 utility-scale wind and solar renewable energy projects along with  60 solar rooftops on its centers across the globe.

Worksport – accessories of the new EV era

With a flood of electric pickup truck debuts in the near future, the aftermarket accessory market is going green as well. Worksport’s recently revealed solar-panel bed cover is bringing clear and sustainable energy to traditional pickups. Moreover, its TerraVis system could increase the driving range of upcoming EV pickups from Detroit’s Ford (NYSE: F) and General Motors (NYSE: GM).

Tesla’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk who is well known for setting ambitious goals, said that a solar-panel system on the Cybertruck would generate somewhere around 15 miles of range per day. Hyundai Motor Company (OTC: HYMTF) promised that the solar roof on its new Sonata Hybrid, which appears to be much smaller than Worksport’s model, could provide two miles of range per day. Each additional mile counts, but Worksport (OTC:WKSP) did something no one else did: it made this complex technology affordable. Moreover, it offered drivers the opportunity to go green without the hefty price that comes with buying an EV. Just like EV trucks, Terravis is still in the design phase. With appropriate funding, Worksport expects to launch the product within one to two years. But last week, the company announced it is already in the final stage of signing a deal with a US-based electric truck manufacturer.

Outlook

The pandemic has smashed global auto sales in the first half of the year. Yet, its impact was far lower on EVs. The pandemic has merely slowed them down. With companies such as Worksport making this new technology more affordable and Amazon building a fleet with the help of Mercedes Benz and Rivian, an electric future can be realised much sooner than expected.  Afterall, this is our best shot at preserving our planet.

Worksport™ & Atlis Motor Vehicles form Collaborative Partnership

Published

on

Atlis Partnered with Worksport OTC:WKSP

TORONTO – Sept. 22, 2020 — Worksport Ltd (OTC: WKSP) (or the “Company”) has entered into an agreement with Atlis Motor Vehicles, Mesa, Ariz., aimed at configuring the TerraVis solar charging system as an OE accessory for the highly anticipated, technologically advanced Atlis XT electric pickup truck. Atlis and Worksport will begin working together immediately to integrate their engineering and design departments. They will uniquely configure the TerraVis’™ Solar Truck Bed Power System to provide the Atlis XT Truck with a meaningful source of recharge power from its integrated Solar Panels.

This is the second recent agreement that Worksport has struck with a U.S. based EV Truck manufacturer to become its OEM partner and create a customized TerraVis’ solar panel tonneau cover for the company’s forthcoming all-electric pick up truck.

The aggressively priced Atlis XT truck comprises many market-leading features including 15-minute charge time, 500-mile range, and 35,000lb towing capacity with an estimated million mile working life.

“This new collaboration agreement with a market-leading manufacturer continues to prove out our business model and demonstrate our bright future and large upside,” said Worksport CEO Steven Rossi. “It follows closely on our previous announcement to be the OEM partner for a customized solar truck bed power system.”

Worksport recently made the first public disclosure of details about TerraVis , the very first advanced folding truck bed tonneau cover system to be a fusion of cutting edge solar power, storage, and delivery. The platform takes advantage of a standard pick-up truck’s practical capabilities, while also utilizing the power of more sustainable and renewable energy. Proprietary, high efficiency solar panels built into the rugged tonneau cover—the likes of which Worksport has become widely known for—will collect the sun’s rays and store energy in multiple battery banks.

In addition to Atlis, Worksport has been fielding a number of inquiries from other manufacturers, the media and investment community as well as business interest from organizations in Holland, Germany, Australia, Spain, multiple U.S. and Canadian companies.

“TerraVis’™ Solar Truck Bed Power System introduction not only has rewarded the hard work in developing a technological breakthrough, but it is also transforming the company’s future almost immediately,” Rossi said. “It is a real and meaningful game-changer. However, we wish to assure customers and investors that Worksport will continue to focus on growth as the lead innovator and manufacturer in the Global Automotive Market for tonneau covers for electric and conventional light trucks.”

As it did with its open investor Q&A September 21, the Company will continue to update shareholders, supporters, and investors to maintain the highest level of disclosure and information dissemination as Worksport continues to grow and develop at a very rapid pace.

Worksport™ Provides Update for TerraVis™ OEM Supply Agreement

Published

on

Worksport WKSP

TORONTO – Sept. 15, 2020 — Worksport Ltd, (OTC:WKSP) (or the “Company), will require additional time to make a formal announcement of its first TerraVis’ solar truck cover partnership with a U.S. based Electronic Vehicle manufacturer. This is the result of broadening discussions between both companies, beyond the initial supply partnership agreement announced earlier this month.

The TerraVis’Solar Truck Bed Power System, for its first OEM partner, will be uniquely configured so that TerraVis will provide the EV Truck, with a meaningful source of recharge power, from its integrated Solar Panels. The partnership between the two companies is expected to generate US$70 million in revenues for Worksport in the near-to-mid-term, according to Worksport CEO Steven Rossi.

Management from the companies are engaged in active discussions, expanding beyond just the initial supply partnership agreement. Discussions are now centered towards additional synergies that are leading towards further opportunities between the companies. Details are expected be made publicly available soon.

As well, Worksport has had business interest from organizations in Holland, Germany, Australia, Spain, multiple U.S. and Canadian companies as well as overwhelming interest from journalists and those within the investment community. TerraVis, much more than a solar panel truck bed cover, is a fully integrated, scalable system pairing on-demand zero emissions solar power with an unmatched cargo bed usage experience meeting pickup truck owners’ needs as they expand and change.

“This is an extremely pivotal and exciting time for Worksport,” said Rossi. “We are proceeding with optimistic caution and believe this is history in the making. TerraVis is poised to off-grid the future EV-Truck off-road experience”

The Company will frequently update shareholders, supporters, and investors to maintain the highest level of disclosure and information dissemination as Worksport continues to grow and develop at a very rapid pace.

Any interested investors or shareholders are encouraged to follow the company’s social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram as well as sign up for the company’s newsletters on bothwww.worksport.com and www.goterravis.com, to stay up to date on all of the latest news.
