GreenPower Motor Company Inc. received a purchase order from Washington’s Grant Transit Authority for four wirelessly charged EV Stars.
The order represents the first GreenPower EV Stars to include Momentum Dynamics’ wireless charging system, allowing for hands free charging by simply parking the vehicle over the charging station. Grant Transit intends to leverage funding from the Federal Transit Administration’s $180 million for the 2021 Low-No Program to support the purchase. As part of the process to secure the funding, GreenPower successfully completed a Buy America compliance audit at its southern California facility.
Grant Transit Authority's EV Stars are expected to begin servicing routes in the greater Moses Lake area in fall 2021, according to Greg Wright, the agency's GM.
GreenPower has leveraged its flagship EV Star platform with six distinct models serving the cargo, delivery, and microtransit markets. The EV Star is the only vehicle in its class that comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC fast combo charging system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle.
