Among a flurry of IPOs this year, the EV makers have been drawing huge attention from investors. Now, Phoenix Motors aims for an initial public offer, coming close on the heels of Rivian Automotive IPO earlier this month.
The company filed for an IPO with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Monday, showing its solid confidence in the market following several blockbuster IPOs this year.
The Ontario, California-based company was founded in 2003. Phoenix manufactures electric buses and trucks. It has been recently focusing on supplying EVs for government fleet markets.
Phoenix launched its first electric drivetrain in 2009 and sold its first commercial EV shuttle bus in 2014. In November 2020, renewable energy company SPI Energy purchased Phoenix. As of September 30, 2021, Phoenix Motors delivered 84 shuttle buses and 14 work-delivery trucks.
