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. Its operations were not continued after it entered receivership and was purchased by a third party.
“Lightning eMotors developed an efficient process for adding new drivetrains, electric motors and battery packs to existing chassis,” explained Chad Farrell, Managing Director, 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 timed, online auction of assets from the 250,000-square-foot Loveland facility closes on Thurs., May 30, at 10 a.m. (MT). Bidding opens Thurs., May 23, 10 a.m. (MT) at All assets will be sold as-is, where-is without representations or warranties.
The late-model EVs (2021-2023) include Chevrolet Express 4500 Cutaways; Ford F450 box trucks; Ford F350 transit cargo vans; GMC 4500 box trucks, as well as school and shuttle buses and trailers.
Also available are two dynamometers—a still-in-the-crate 2021 MAE Mustang MD-250-HD-AC-200HP 10K EOL chassis dynamometer with pop-up restraints, and a 2021 MAE Mustang advanced engineering 2-wheel drive chassis dynamometer. “We anticipate strong interest in these pieces among automotive dealers and repair shops—any potential buyer with a need to test engines,” Farrell said.
Other highlights include…

  • Large quantities electric motors, gearboxes, batteries, wiring harnesses, connectors and other automotive parts
  • An advanced machine shop with pieces that include a Bescutter Fly Pro 3015 fiber laser metal sheet and pipe cutter, along with welders, bandsaws, floor and jib cranes, jack stands and dozens of tools 
  • Plant support and office equipment including pallet racking, utility shelving, furniture, computers, filing cabinets, a key card system and more
