Basin Transit Authority (MBTA) has authorized, on behalf of the California Association for Coordinated Transportation (CALACT), Endera for its B-Series all-electric buses in the largest statewide purchasing contract in U.S. history, according to Endera's news release.
Endera was awarded the contract for up to 1,000 electric shuttles through its distribution partner, Coachwest Luxury & Performance Motorcars (Coachwest).
CALACT association’s membership of transit agencies, as well as city and county governments, can now purchase Endera’s B-Series all-electric shuttles through a streamlined process.
An estimated 1,000 electric shuttles are expected to be purchased from the CALACT contract by 2025, with additional electric buses procured over the entire five-year contract period.
Endera’s electric powertrains and vehicle bodies are built under one roof at the company’s 250,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Ottawa, Ohio.
Endera said its electric shuttles and associated service partnerships support California’s clean air and climate goals.
Endera’s proprietary electric powertrains are developed at the company’s Research and Development (R&D) headquartered in Los Angeles, California.
“Endera was awarded the CALACT contract as the lowest-priced vendor and the only vertically integrated one-stop shop. We listen to our clients to learn about the problems they face and understand the solutions they need, which is why we have a superior offering in virtually every category,” said John Walsh, founder/CEO of Endera.
