Nation’s Largest All Electric Van Pool Continues to Expand Fleet
GreenPower Motor Company Inc., a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of a diverse line of electric powered buses serving the cargo and delivery, shuttle, transit and school bus markets today announced an order for 100 EV Stars from Green Commuter.
Green Commuter is the nation’s largest all-electric van pool fleet operator and has previously taken delivery of 48 EV Stars pursuant to their initial order for 100 units, with the balance of that order expected to be delivered in calendar 2020. Deliveries against this additional purchase order for 100 units are expected to occur throughout calendar 2021.
Gustavo Occhiuzzo, CEO of Green Commuter commented that, they were pleased to secure an additional supply of EV Stars as they continued to expand their fleet through 2020 and beyond. The EV Star had proven extremely versatile because it was easy to operate and could meet the demands of transit providers, employee shuttles, last mile delivery services and numerous other utilities.
The 25-foot EV Star is an all-electric, zero emission bus that seats up to 19 passengers and features 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. This versatile electric vehicle can be used for micro-transit services, paratransit, vanpool, shuttle, school, employee transportation, tourist operations or cargo transport.
Brendan Riley, President of GreenPower stated that, Green Commuter was an early adopter of the EV Star and had been a tremendous partner. This follow on order was a testament to not only the value proposition that the EV Star provided, but also GreenPower’s ability to service a rapidly growing fleet like that of Green Commuter. There was a little doubt that Green Commuter was poised for monumental growth in the near future and the company looked forward to expanding their relationship with such a leading edge organization.
