LOS ANGELES — GreenPower Motor Company Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission, electric-powered medium and heavy-duty vehicles, announced that it has teamed with WeDriveU to add EV Stars to its electric shuttle fleet.

The purpose-built all-electric EV Star will be integral in the expansion of WeDriveU’s zero emissions fleet for customers across the U.S. Greenpower expects to deliver the first EV Star to WeDriveU in the current quarter with additional units planned by the end of the calendar year.

“WeDriveU has demoed our vehicle with accounts and the real-world data that was accumulated was certainly helpful in making this partnership happen,” Ryne Shetterly, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GreenPower said in a statement. “The EV Star will be deployed and in service by the end of the year at one of the most recognizable companies in the world and we believe WeDriveU is the catalyst that will help grow similar relationships.”

Tim Wayland, Chief Commercial Officer at WeDriveU added, “Fleet electrification continues to expand as major companies and universities are advocating for a more sustainable approach. By securing vehicles and infrastructure, WeDriveU is positioned to be the zero emission shuttle operator of choice.”
