PORTERVILLE, Calif., July 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (TSXV: GPV) (OTCQX: GPVRF) (“GreenPower”) today announced that it has delivered the first two EV Star All-Electric Min-eBuses (“EV Stars”) to Creative Bus Sales (“Creative”), with ten additional EV Stars to be delivered during the next two weeks. As previously announced, GreenPower received an order in 2018 for 100 buses from Creative, the nation’s largest bus dealer for sales, parts and service. With 19 physical locations, a 75-person sales team, and 200-plus service and support staff, Creative sold thousands of buses in the U.S. last year and represents over 20 of the top bus manufacturers. “We are excited to see our first EV Stars now at Creative Bus Sales, which we view as a huge growth opportunity for GreenPower going forward,” said Brendan Riley, President of GreenPower Motor Company. “As the largest bus dealer across the U.S., Creative has already committed to purchasing 100 of our buses – which we believe is just the tip of the iceberg. Given the company’s broad distribution network, combined with the unique attributes of our zero-emission offerings, we’re excited about where this partnership will take us in the years to come. We thank Creative for their dedication to our diverse range of electric vehicles and the faith they’ve placed in our technology. We look forward to a long, beneficial relationship together.” The EV Star is the only bus in its class that comes with a standard J1772 level 2 and CCS DC fast combo charge system, allowing for optimal flexibility in route planning for any duty cycle. The EV Star is eligible for a base voucher of $90,000 from the California HVIP program and an additional voucher of $10,000 when the vehicle is operated in a disadvantaged community.
