Global Leader in Control Systems for Electric Vehicles Marks On-Road Automotive Design Wins With Corporate Name Change From Tech/Ops Sevcon to "Sevcon"

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., -- Tech/Ops Sevcon, Inc. (Nasdaq:TO) has changed its name to "Sevcon, Inc." and will begin trading on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol "SEV" (Nasdaq:SEV) tomorrow, June 8, 2011.

"Sevcon is the trade name our customers know all over the world. Changing our corporate name reflects our increasing success in penetrating global on-road electric vehicle markets," said Matt Boyle, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Matt Boyle continued, "In 2009 we were selected by Peugeot as the supplier of advanced control technology for their new 100% electric E-Vivacity scooter, and our new business pipeline includes designs for several other global automotive OEMs. We are also involved in a number of promising alliances for the development of breakthrough drivetrain technologies for electric and hybrid vehicles."

"Given the strength of our new business and product development pipelines - as well as our proven capabilities in volume production, logistics and customer support - we expect to complement growth in traditional off-road applications with accelerating sales to on-road electric vehicle manufacturers in the quarters ahead," Boyle said. "Sevcon's ability to leverage the experience gained from 60 years of providing rugged, compact, high-quality motor controls to makers of fork lift trucks, aerial lifts, airport tractors and other electric vehicles strongly positions us to expand our presence in the fast-growing global market for zero-emission cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles."
