GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (TSXV: GPV) (OTCQB: GPVRF) ("GreenPower"), a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of a diverse line of electric powered buses serving the cargo and delivery, shuttle, transit and school bus markets announced an order for 100 EV Stars from Green Commuter.
Green Commuter is the nation's largest all-electric van pool fleet operator and has previously taken delivery of 48 EV Stars pursuant to their initial order for 100 units, with the balance of that order expected to be delivered in calendar 2020. Deliveries against this additional purchase order for 100 units are expected to occur throughout calendar 2021.
"We are pleased to secure an additional supply of EV Stars as we continue to expand our fleet through 2020 and beyond," commented Gustavo Occhiuzzo, CEO of Green Commuter. "The EV Star has proven extremely versatile because it's easy to operate and can meet the demands of transit providers, employee shuttles, last mile delivery services and numerous other utilities."
The 25-foot EV Star is an all-electric, zero emission bus that seats up to 19 passengers and features an operational range of up to 150 miles. The EV Star comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC level 3 fast combo charge system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle. This versatile electric vehicle can be used for micro-transit services, paratransit, vanpool, shuttle, school, employee transportation, tourist operations or cargo transport.
Brendan Riley, President of GreenPower commented, "Green Commuter was an early adopter of the EV Star and has been a tremendous partner. This follow on order is a testament to not only the value proposition that the EV Star provides, but also GreenPower's ability to service a rapidly growing fleet like that of Green Commuter. There is little doubt that Green Commuter is poised for monumental growth in the near future and we look forward to expanding our relationship with such a leading edge organization."
