GreenPower Motor Co. Inc.’s manufacturing facility in Porterville, California is ready for production. In August 2018, the company entered into a four-year lease with a three-year option for a facility with over 50,000 square feet in Porterville as a manufacturing and assembly center.

GreenPower has now set up this facility for production of EV Stars and the EV Star Plus models.

“We’ve ordered the initial parts and components to build the first tranche of EV Stars commencing in December,” said Brendan Riley, president of GreenPower. “By the end of 2019, we plan on producing 25 EV Stars per month with total production of over 200 EV Stars for 2019.”

  • The EV Star is an all-electric, zero emission 25-foot bus that seats up to 19 passengers, with an operational range of 120 to 150 miles on a single charge.
  • The EV Star Plus is a wider body model that can accommodate multiple ADA spots with a curb-side wheelchair lift. The EV Star can be charged with Level 2 and DC Fast Charging systems.
  • The versatile vehicles can be used for microtransit services, para-transit, vanpool, shuttle, school, employee transportation, tourist operations, or cargo transport.

The company presently has orders for over 40 EV Star and EV Star Plus Min-eBuses.
