Workhorse(TM) by AMP Holding Inc. Develops HorseFly(TM) Aerial Vehicle
Designed For Package Delivery Market

Collaborated With University of Cincinnati Department of Aeronautical
Engineering and Engineering Mechanics to Build Battery-Powered Unmanned Aerial

CINCINNATI, Ohio, June 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - AMP Holding
Inc. (OTCBB:AMPD) (OTCQB:AMPD) announced today that its AMP Trucks subsidiary
has successfully designed and flown a prototype of its new HorseFly™
battery-powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

Steve Burns, AMP CEO said, "HorseFly is the logical extension of our mission
to help companies better manage their logistics operations. Whether a company
wants to deliver its packages by truck or by aerial vehicle, we want to be
able to answer their needs."

Built in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati's Department of
Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, the eight rotor aircraft uses
advanced motor controls to manage the dynamic forces such as wind gusts
associated with flight.

"Our years of designing battery systems and motor control systems for our
electric cars and trucks gives us a wealth of experience on how to control and
power an aerial vehicle. Like ground-based electric vehicles, the best battery
will win. This isn't a hobbyist venture, we're working on an industrial
strength, professional grade battery pack to ensure reliability and longer
flight times" Burns added.

When mated to a Workhorse Electric Truck, the HorseFly™ can quickly recharge
from the large battery in the Workhorse truck. With delivery trucks scattered
within almost any region during the day, the UAV can make short flights from
the vehicle, as opposed to flying from a warehouse for each delivery.

Under an aviation law enacted in 2012 permitting the use of drones for public
safety, commercial use of drones is still prohibited, however most aviation
law experts expect that the 2012 law will be extended to include commercial
use of drones late this year or early in 2015.
