GreenPower Motor Co. will have its Synapse All-Electric Shuttle Bus on display at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Long Beach, Calif., from May 1 to 2. Prospective customers can schedule a private demonstration (ride-and-drive) that will take place the two days preceding the event.
Part of GreenPower’s high-floor Synapse line of products, the Synapse Shuttle is the world’s first purpose-built, battery-powered shuttle vehicle, seating up to 48 passengers and boasting a long-range capacity of over 200 miles on a single charge. The bus will be on display at the GreenPower booth, where attendees of the ACT Expo can closely inspect the vehicle.
The GreenPower EV350 40-Foot All-Electric Transit Bus from Porterville Transit will also be at the show. The long-range EV350 recently completed a 205-mile, one-way trip from the San Joaquin Valley to Newport Beach using only 50% of its stored battery-power, exceeding its original estimated range. This vehicle will be driven under its own power again from Porterville, Calif., to the Expo.
