GreenPower Motor Company Inc. is a leading manufacturer and distributor of zero-emission, electric-powered, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles. Today they announced that its purpose-built buses and trucks are eligible for vouchers ranging from $60,000 to $375,000 per vehicle. That’s through the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP).
The program will open at 10 a.m. PT on March 30, 2022. $196,600,000 is available in standard HVIP funds. Moreover, $65,500,000 is for public transit. Therefore, $122,000,000 is for public schools in small and medium air districts. In addition, GreenPower’s HVIP-eligible models include the company’s electric school bus line including the BEAST (Type D) and NanoBeast (Type A); Class 8 transit bus line; and Class 4 EV Star product line, which consists of both cargo trucks and passenger vans.
Michael Perez, Director of Contracts and Grants at GreenPower, commented, “GreenPower’s delivery history through HVIP is outstanding, and we look forward to leveraging this year’s funding to put even more vehicles on the road.” Perez continued, “While lead times have proven to be a major obstacle for others in the program, GreenPower has distinguished itself from competitors by consistently delivering HVIP-funded vehicles in a timely fashion.”
Ryne Shetterly, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GreenPower, added, “GreenPower has a successful history of securing funding and fulfilling orders through HVIP. Moreover, purchasers who partner with GreenPower to obtain HVIP vouchers seize a rare opportunity. That’s to acquire best-in-class battery-electric vehicles at dramatically discounted prices.”
