LOVELAND, Colo., May 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — A Tiger Group online auction on May 30 gives fleet operators, repair shops, carmakers and other potential buyers the chance to bid on $10 million in parts, tools, equipment and EVs formerly owned by Lightning eMotors.

The Loveland-based company converted conventional, fossil fuel-burning vehicles into zero-emission EVs for fleet-operating customers that included municipalities, school systems and medical businesses.

It’s a great opportunity.”
