LOS ANGELES, Dec. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xos, Inc. (NASDAQ: XOS), a leading manufacturer of fully electric Class 5 to Class 8 commercial vehicles, today announced the receipt of a purchase order for Xos last mile delivery vehicles from Route Consultant, a premier broker and consultant for FedEx Ground contractors.

“We are thrilled to partner with one of the most trusted and recognizable independent service providers within FedEx Ground,” said Dakota Semler, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Xos, Inc. “We’re excited to grow our relationship and continue electrifying FedEx Ground fleets across the country.”

The 40 last mile delivery vehicles are slated for delivery in 2022 across three different cities in the Midwestern United States. Ten trucks will be delivered to Springfield, Ill., twenty to St. Louis, Mo., and ten to Terre Haute, Ind.

“This is a multi-million dollar investment that we are proud to make in Xos vehicles,” said Spencer Patton, Founder and President of Route Consultant. “I have long been impressed with Xos and their fully-electric, zero-emission vehicles. They helped create a charging infrastructure and fleet management service which made this investment in Xos vehicles a no-brainer decision. We have now become the largest owner of EV vehicles within FedEx Ground service providers and we hope we can blaze a trail towards achieving a meaningful adoption of electric vehicles amongst fellow contractors.”

Spencer Patton experienced Xos vehicles firsthand at the Contractor Expo, the largest gathering of FedEx contractors in the United States.

Xos CEO Dakota Semler also spoke on stage with Spencer at the 2021 Route Consultant Contractor Expo. Xos will be at the 2022 Contractor Expo in Las Vegas to meet with more FedEx Ground contractors.
