GreenPower Motor Co. Inc. delivered eight EV Star All-Electric Min-eBuses (EV Stars) to Creative Bus Sales for a total of 10 EV Stars for the month of July. As previously announced, the company received an order in 2018 for 100 buses from Creative.
With 19 physical locations, a 75-person sales team, and 200-plus service and support staff, Creative sold thousands of buses in the U.S. last year and represents over 20 of the top bus manufacturers.
GreenPower has now delivered 24 EV Stars to the following customers: Sacramento Regional Transit, University of California San Francisco, Port of Oakland, San Diego Parking Co., Green Commuter, and now Creative Bus Sales. The recent expansion in Porterville, Calif., will be focused on the increased production of EV Stars.
In February, the company commenced production of 30 EV Stars, 15 of which have been delivered. In June, GreenPower commenced production on an additional 50 EV Stars where management expects 16 of these to be completed and ready for delivery at the end of August.
Management anticipates that production will continue to increase month over month and is targeting over 30 units per month by the end of the calendar year.
The EV Star is the only bus in its class that comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC fast-charge combo system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle, the company stated.
