Grande West Transportation Group Inc. received an order for its Vicinity Lightning™ Electric Vehicles.
The order is for five Vicinity Lightning™ buses from the company’s U.S. distribution channel. The vehicles will be used for university shuttle services and delivery is scheduled in the third quarter of 2021.
The order is part of a 20-bus production schedule that begins the series production of the Vicinity Lightning™ for commercial deliveries in calendar year 2021. The company is seeing a large demand from public and private operators across Canada and the U.S.
“We are extremely excited about our new Vicinity Lightning EV and LT 28-foot shuttle bus models,” said William Trainer, president/CEO at Vicinity. “Management sees the runway for new sales of this line of medium-duty Vicinity product to be over 1,000 units per year. We have locked in production levels to produce up to 200 Vicinity Lightning™ during 2021. We look forward to updating the market on continued success in our Canadian and U.S. sales expansion.”
