GreenPower Motor Co. Inc. deployed 30 EV Star buses with Green Commuter in December 2019, part of its previously announced 100-unit purchase order. Green Commuter is a California-based all-electric vanpool provider that offers vanpooling, car-sharing, shuttle service, and fleet replacement.

The 30 EV Stars were equipped with both executive seating and ADA configurations, providing versatility for Green Commuter’s operations. 

Each of the 30 EV Stars has approved voucher requests for $100,000 of funding from California’s HVIP program, for $3 million in total. The HVIP funding is part of the $12.3 million in approved HVIP voucher requests on 118 vehicles that GreenPower had in place at the end of the quarter ending in September. GreenPower’s wholly owned subsidiary, San Joaquin Valley Equipment Leasing, provided lease financing for the remainder of the purchase price for the 30 EV Stars. 

The 25-foot EV Star is an all-electric, zero emission bus that seats up to 19 passengers with an operational range of up to 150 miles. The EV Star comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC level 3 fast combo charge system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle. The versatile vehicle can be used for microtransit services, paratransit, vanpool, shuttle, school, employee transportation, tourist operations, or cargo transport.
