Temecula, CA, October 4, 2021 – GreenPower Motor Company Inc. (NASDAQ: GP) (TSXV: GPV) (“GreenPower”), a leading manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission, electric-powered, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles, together with the City of Temecula, announces the delivery of an ADA-accessible EV Star for use by the City of Temecula’s Mary Phillips Senior Center.
Michael Perez, Director of Contracts and Grants at GreenPower, commented, “The City of Temecula has been eying our purpose-built EV Star for over a year now.” Michael says they are thrilled to deliver this unit to the City. Moreover, It also highlights GreenPower’s ability to continue successfully leveraging available programs like the VW Mitigation Trust.
Perez continued, “Additionally, I would like to thank the Temecula City Council including Council Member and TCSD President Zak Schwank, whose forward-thinking direction led to securing a grant that replaces the City’s older gasoline bus with a zero-emissions bus. We also thank the City Manager’s Office including staff member Stacey Brown. Their commitment to this project in a challenging pandemic environment was critical to its completion.”
Temecula Council Member Zak Schwank stated, “A safe, reliable, emissions-free ride for our community is what we are after. And the EV Star provides just that. By leveraging VW mitigation funding in the amount of $160,000, we’ll see an immediate positive impact. That’s on operational costs and emissions reduction, so it’s a win for the entire community. We are glad to have a GreenPower EV Star join the City’s fleet.”
