The company delivered 105 vehicles vehicles during this period, a clear improvement compared to the same quarter of 2021 when 61 vehicles were supplied.

“As we are about to start operations at our manufacturing plant in the United United States and at our battery plant, we have also decided to adjust the pace of our capital expenditures, which should allow us to accelerate the return on invested capital and optimally manage our capital resources,” he pointed out.

The company had an order book of 2,357 medium- and heavy-duty all-electric city vehicles as of August 4, worth approximately $575 million. .
