InvestorNewsBreaks – Ideanomics Inc. (NASDAQ: IDEX) Closes VIA Motors Acquisition, targets commercial EV delivery sector

Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX), a global company focused on accelerating the commercial adoption of electric vehicles (“EV”), has completed its acquisition of VIA Motors, a U.S. based all-electric commercial vehicle manufacturer. According to the announcement, VIA will become part of Ideanomics Mobility, one of the IDEX’s three strategic verticals; VIA CEO Bob Purcell will continue to lead the company. The two companies will work together to produce VIA’s electric work trucks featuring Ideanomics Energy’s turnkey charging solutions. In order to make this happen, IDEX will be the preferred charging solutions provider for VIA; the Ideanomics solution will allow customers to charge their VIA trucks with either AC or DC chargers, advanced wireless charging and containerized charging. The company also noted that the acquisition will allow exploration of potential opportunities to utilize VIA’s VDRIVE(TM) skateboard with noncompeting OEMs. “Together, Ideanomics and VIA will introduce a cost-efficient, integrated EV and charging solution for commercial fleets, which has been sorely lacking in the market,” says Ideanomics CEO Alf Poor in the press release. “Ideanomics will help VIA move swiftly to ramp up production of their VTRUX(R) portfolio of class 2 to 5 trucks, vans and proprietary skateboards, and leverage Ideanomics’ turnkey charging and financing solutions to give fleet operators a better way to own and operate VIA electric work trucks faster, easier and more affordably.”
