Item 5. Other Events and Regulation FD Disclosure.

Enova  Systems,  Inc. (the "Company" or  "Registrant")  has entered into a Joint
Venture  Agreement  (the  "Agreement")  with Hyundai  Heavy  Industries of Korea
("HHI") to create an advanced technology corporation (the "ATC") to be domiciled
in Torrance California.

In  conjunction  with this  Agreement,  HHI and the Company  have entered into a
stock  purchase  agreement  pursuant  to which HHI will  make a US $3.0  million
investment  in the  Company  through  the  purchase  of shares of the  Company's
authorized and unissued common stock pursuant to Regulation D promulgated  under
the Securities Act of 1933. This investment will be made in two  installments of
US$1.5 million each. The first  installment will be made upon  incorporations of
the  ATC  and in  consideration  for  the  issuance  to HHI  by the  Company  of
23,076,923  shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $0.065 per share.
The second  installment  of $US1.5 million will be made one year after the first
installment in a forward pricing  mechanism of Enova Systems common shares which
has been pre-agreed by both HHI and Enova.  The Company will invest US$1 million
of each  installment  into  the ATC in  consideration  for the  issuance  to the
Company of a 40% equity interest in the ATC (the balance of the installments, in
the amount of $500,000 each, will be retained by Enova).  HHI will acquire a 60%
equity interest in ATC by investing US$ 3 million in the ATC in two installments
of  US$1.5  million  each,  to be made  concurrently  with  the two  installment
payments to be paid by HHI for the Company's  common stock. At the conclusion of
these transactions,  HHI and the Company will have invested an aggregate of US$5
million in the ATC.

Additional information regarding the ATC and its business scope are discussed in
the News release dated March 19, 2003, attached as an exhibit hereto.
