Lightning eMotors vehicles, equipment go to auction

May 21, 2024 | by

Lightning eMotors’ vehicles, parts, tools and equipment will be offered at auction May 30, Tiger Group says. 

The Colorado-based company converted conventional internal combustion vehicles to zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs) for fleets. It ceased operations after it entered receivership and was purchased by a third party. The timed, online auction of assets from Lightning eMotors starts Thursday at 10 a.m. MT. Bidding ends May 30 at 10 a.m. MT. All assets are sold as-is, where-is, without representations or warranties. 

“Lightning eMotors developed an efficient process for adding new drivetrains, electric motors and battery packs to existing chassis,” says Chad Farrell, managing director of Tiger Commercial & Industrial. “Fleet operators can achieve their ESG goals or just run cleaner by acquiring select groupings of assets in this sale. It’s a great opportunity.” 

The late-model EVS include 2021-2023 Chevrolet Express 4500 Cutaways, Ford F450 box trucks, Ford F350 transit cargo vans, GMC 4500 box trucks, school buses, shuttle buses and trailers. Also available are two dynamometers, a 2021 MAE Mustang MD-250-HD-AC-200HP, still in the crate, and a 2021 MAE Mustang advanced engineering two-wheel drive chassis dynamometer. 

The auction also includes electric motors, gearboxes, batteries, wiring harnesses, connectors, automotive parts, machine shop equipment, a Bescutter Fly Pro 3015 fiber laster metal sheet and pipe cutter, office and plant equipment, and more.
