The company says that the 85 vouchers with the California HVIP program should assist small fleet operators that often face multiple barriers to zero-emission truck adoption.
LOS ANGELES — GreenPower Motor Company Inc. has secured another 85 vouchers under the California HVIP program for 75 EV Star 22′ Cargo vans, eight EV Star Box Trucks and two EV Star 25′ Cargo vans.
GreenPower has also delivered 15 EV Stars to customers with vouchers under the New Jersey ZIP and California HVIP incentive programs this quarter with deliveries scheduled for 55 EV Stars with existing vouchers. These sales are in addition to Workhorse and school bus sales.
The company says that the 85 vouchers with the California HVIP program should assist small fleet operators that often face multiple barriers to zero-emission truck adoption, including high upfront costs.
GreenPower recently secured additional vouchers from the New Jersey ZIP program. In July, New Jersey Economic Development Authority announced additional funding of $45 million as well as expanding eligibility to include heavy-duty vehicle classes, and expanding statewide, beyond the four pilot communities in the first phase.
“GreenPower’s EV Star 22-foot cargo van has quickly become our highest demand vehicle. Incentive programs offered by California where we have the second highest redemptions and New Jersey where we have the highest approved vouchers are making a difference with the adoption of all-electric vehicles,” said Michael Perez, vice president of school bus, contracts and grants at GreenPower in a statement.
