GreenPower Motor Co. Inc. received an order for two EV Star All-Electric Min–eBuses from the University of California San Francisco (UC San Francisco), San Francisco's second-largest employer.

To meet the University of California (UC) system’s ambitious goal to be carbon neutral by 2025, UC San Francisco must reduce greenhouse gas emissions across all 10 campuses, including tackling emissions from the UC-owned transportation fleet.

The EV Star is an all–electric, emissions–free, 25-foot bus that seats up to 19 people, with an operational range of 125 to 200 miles on one charge and a lifetime of over 20 years. The EV Star can also be configured to accommodate wheelchairs or mobility aids. GreenPower has 10 EV Stars well into production, which are expected to be completed this summer.

“We are excited to be helping UC San Francisco achieve their sustainability objectives with the added benefits of a quiet ride and reduced costs. The EV Star is perfectly suited for University and College campus use because of its small size and low purchase price,” said Brendan Riley, president of GreenPower. “We also have the opportunity for additional sales of EV Stars to UC San Francisco and other Universities in North America later this year.”
