Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX) (“Ideanomics” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its sponsorship in the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE). As Ideanomics prepares to launch its heavy truck and specialty electric vehicle unit, Medici Motor Works, in North America in 2021, it was imperative that the Company work with stakeholders and advocacy groups to understand the opportunities unique to the region.

“NACFE takes a holistic approach to electric vehicle (EV) adoption and brings together important and influential companies in the freight industry,” said Ideanomics CEO Alf Poor. “Our participation in NACFE will enable us to better understand the North American market at both a local and national level and, with this knowledge, improve the development and growth of our businesses in the EV space, which includes our MEG division, Medici Motor Works, and WAVE.”
“In 2018, NACFE launched efforts to help Guide Emerging Technologies and have published eight reports now on electric trucks,” said Mike Roeth, NACFE Executive Director. “A very rewarding result is getting to know many new entrants into the NA truck market, including companies such as Ideanomics, who offer a perspective across the spectrum of challenges in moving to zero emissions, including commercial vehicles and associated rebate programs, financing, and charging solutions.”
