EPA Approves AMP Holding Inc. E-GEN(TM) Electric Truck With On-Board Emergency

Typical delivery trucks have only been able to achieve 7.5 mph. E-Gen(TM)
Breakthrough Technology Offers an Estimated 20 mpg equivalent in 14,500 -
19,500 lb. Medium-Duty Delivery Trucks

CINCINNATI, Ohio, Aug. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - AMP Holding
Inc., (OTCBB and OTCQB: AMPD, a medium-duty truck OEM, announced today that
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved its WORKHORSE
E-GEN™ electric truck that employs an alternatively-fueled 2.4 liter engine as
an emergency generator to charge the battery pack.

As configured in the E-GEN Truck, the combination of the right-sized battery
pack coupled with the security of an on-board backup generator and a
transmission-less direct-drive system, provides the industry with a
cost-competitive electric truck that also reduces range anxiety typically
associated with electric trucks.

The ultra-efficient E-GEN Truck incorporates a small spark-ignition engine as
an emergency generator that automatically turns on to recharge the battery
pack only if the pack's state of charge falls below a predetermined threshold,
and the drive selector is in PARK.

"We're pleased to be able to offer an innovative product like this," said
Martin Rucidlo, President of AMP Electric Vehicles. "Delivering this unique
solution to the medium duty truck market is a game-changer for fleet operators
interested in reducing the life-cycle costs of their vehicles."

Steve Burns, Chief Executive Officer of AMP, added, "We are very excited to
receive the EPA's approval. Our E-GEN Truck is a breakthrough design,
purpose-built for the package and product delivery market."

Burns explained that the use of the engine enables AMP to produce an electric
vehicle (EV) with a smaller battery pack. The smaller battery pack allows the
company to produce a very competitively-priced EV that yields a positive
return on its incremental cost in as little as three years, while eliminating
operator concerns about range.

"The real benefit to the fleet operator, and perhaps the most exciting element
of this, is that the new powertrain significantly reduces operating costs – an
E-GEN Workhorse truck will deliver the equivalent of 20 mpg compared to the
7.5 mpg operators get now," said Burns.

AMP's E-GEN powertrain will be available in its new W-88 WORKHORSE medium-duty
trucks in 2015.
