GreenPower Motor Co. Inc. announces the first sale of the EV Star All-Electric Mini–eBus to the Port of Oakland as an employee shuttle for on–property transportation.
Shuttle operations provided by employers for their employees is one of the fastest growing sectors for heavy-duty and medium-duty buses, which combined with substantial vouchers provides a unique opportunity for GreenPower’s EV Star.
The EV Star is an all–electric, emissions–free, 25-foot bus that seats 19 people, with an operational range of 125 to 200 miles on one charge and a lifetime of 15-plus years. The EV Star can also be configured to accommodate wheelchairs or mobility aids. GreenPower has ten EV Stars in production, which are expected to be completed in June.
“The EV Star has the right range, passenger accommodations, expected service life, and price point to make this a popular choice among agencies and fleet operators who are looking to increase efficiency, cut cost, and reduce emissions,” said Brendan Riley, president.
GreenPower designs, builds and distributes a full suite of high-floor and low-floor vehicles, including transit buses, school buses, shuttles, and a double decker. GreenPower employs a clean-sheet design to manufacture all-electric buses that are purpose-built to be battery-powered with zero emissions.
