Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Principal Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Principal Officers.

On July 27, 2012, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Enova Systems, Inc. ("Enova") determined, as part of Enova's cost-saving measures, to terminate further cash compensation to the Board, effective as of July 1, 2012. The Board also approved the grant to each of Christopher Thunen, John Wallace and Edward Riddell, the non-employee Directors of Enova, an option covering 440,000 shares of the Common Stock of Enova. However, the grant of such options was made conditional upon shareholder approval of an amendment to the 2006 Equity Compensation Plan to increase the number of shares covered thereby. Such options will only become exercisable as follows: as to 50% of the shares covered thereby upon the Board of Directors approving and Enova entering into a letter of intent or similar agreement contemplating a sale of Enova and, as to the remaining 50% of the shares covered thereby, upon consummation of a sale of Enova. The exercise price under each of such options is $0.07 cents per share. The Board also established certain cash incentive bonus awards for such non-employee directors, the payment of which is dependent upon the settlement of certain account receivables and account payables.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
