TORRANCE, Calif.—( BUSINESS WIRE )—Enova Systems, (AMEX: ENA)(AIM: ENV)(AIM: ENVS), an early stage production company in an emerging industry and a leading developer of proprietary electric, hybrid and fuel cell digital power management systems, is pleased to announce that twenty (20) China FAW Group Corporation Hybrid City buses with Enova s pre-transmission hybrid drive systems have successfully completed field trials on passenger routes within the Olympic sector during the recent Beijing Olympics.

Liu Minghue, the Executive Director of Engineering for the FAW hybrid-electric transit bus trial stated, The Olympic demonstration exceeded our expectations and FAW is very happy with our strong partnership with Enova Systems. This month, FAW placed an additional order for Enova pre-transmission hybrid-electric drive systems as a result of the success of the demonstration during the Beijing Olympics.

Several China-based transit bus manufacturers participated in the trials. The FAW hybrid-electric City Bus is a 10m vehicle that is built by the Wuxi division of FAW Bus Coach. The factory is now set to begin mass production of the new hybrid CA6100SH8 municipal transit bus which is designed for China s increasingly popular BRT systems (bus rapid transit) and traditional inner city mass transit routes.

This new model, with 10 proprietary patents, delivers a fuel economy increase of 38% and an emissions reduction of 30%, compared to traditional diesel buses.

In November, Enova and FAW senior management will meet in China to begin formal discussions on how to aggressively pursue a hybrid strategy for the immense Asian truck and bus market.

According to the KPMG 2006 China Commercial Vehicles Market Report, the annual medium and heavy truck and bus build in China is approximately 1.1 million units, with FAW holding a 22% share of that build.
