14 May 2024

GreenPower Motor Company Inc. a leading manufacturer and distributor of purpose-built, all-electric, zero-emission medium and heavy-duty vehicles serving the cargo and delivery market, shuttle and transit space and school bus sector, will participate in the NYC Fleet Show  put on by the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services on May 16 at the Unisphere at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, New York. GreenPower will showcase a sampling of its all-electric, purpose-built commercial vehicles and school buses including the EV Star Utility Truck, the EV Star Passenger Van and the Nano BEAST Access all-electric school bus.

"As New York continues to drive the electric transition through its state-wide initiatives and funding programs, the NYC Fleet Show offers a perfect opportunity for GreenPower to showcase our diverse fleet of zero-emission vehicles," said Brendan Riley, President of GreenPower. "We look forward to meeting with schools and fleet operators to present our safe, sensible and sustainable solutions and discuss the range of benefits."

GreenPower's purpose-built vehicles provide a cleaner and safer transportation option to businesses and school districts looking to deploy all-electric commercial vehicles including trucks, cargo vans and school buses. GreenPower's innovative technologies can help fleets drive down operating costs, minimize maintenance costs while delivering outstanding reliability and efficiency and address climate change.

The EV Star Cargo Plus, EV Star Cargo, and EV Star Cab & Chassis, are eligible for the New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program (NYTVIP) which provides voucher funding for New York-operated fleets that scrap an old diesel vehicle (engine model year 1992 – 2009) and replace it with an all-electric vehicle. GreenPower's school buses are a safe and reliable option to meet New York's mandate to zero-emission electric school buses (or ESB) fleet by 2035. The Environmental Bond Act provides both public school districts and contracted fleet operators more than $500 million in funding toward school bus electrification. Additionally, the New York School Bus Incentive Program (NYSBIP) offers to cover 60% of the incremental cost of GreenPower's Type D BEAST, Type A Nano BEAST and Nano BEAST Access.
