Sevcon Inc., which designs and makes microprocessor-based controls for zero-emission electric vehicles, last week blamed “challenging global economic conditions” for a quarterly net loss of $1.3 million, or 39 cents per diluted share, versus net income of $284,000, or 8 cents per diluted share, a year earlier.
